California Salons And Barbershops Can Now Reopen, But Not In LA

Governor Gavin Newsom announced today that barbershops and salons in 47 counties can reopen.

But if you live in Los Angeles, don't get too excited... Los Angeles is one of the 11 counties in California that are excluded from the re-opening.

“Some parts of the state will not be able to pace as quickly into Phase 3, and we continue to be responsive to those concerns and the needs of those local communities to slow down the pace of reopening, and we respect that,” Newsom said at a press conference on Tuesday.

According to state officials, hair salon and barbershop operators "must acknowledge that lessees should only resume operations when they are ready and able to implement the necessary safety measures to provide for their safety and that of their customers."

Keep in mind, nail salons and fitness centers are not part of the new wave of re-openings that Newsom announced.

"We’re moving forward," Newsom said. "We’re not looking back, but we are walking into the unknown, the untested, literally and figuratively. And we have to be guided by the data that brought us to this place in the first place, that is, guided by these principles of openness and transparency, principles where all of us are required to do a little bit more and little bit better."
