Tuesday, Governor Gavin Newsom announced that counties that have already been granted regional variances to allow barbershops and hair salons to once again open.
RIVERSIDE COUNTY has been granted regional variances. An announcement from the county has yet to be made that we are aware. No timelines in Riverside County have been established for a shop to open.
In the counties whose health departments have allowed businesses to move deeper into stage 2, the state issued guidance for hair salons to follow. Some of the guidelines include:
Workers must use face coverings that cover the nose and mouth.
Salons must provide temperature and/or symptom screenings for all workers at the beginning of their shift.
Customers should be screened upon arrival. Be prepared to cancel or reschedule customers who indicate they have any signs of illness.
Disposable gloves should be worn for services that require them.
Frequently disinfect commonly used surfaces.
Amenities, including magazines, books, coffee, water, self-serve stations (unless touchless), and other items for customers, must be removed from reception areas to help reduce touch points and customer interactions.
Discontinue the use of shared food and beverage equipment in breakrooms (including shared coffee brewers).
Implement measures to ensure physical distancing of at least six feet between and among workers and customers, except when providing haircutting and other close contact services.
Request customers to bring and use face coverings during the visit.
Ensure that workers do not see multiple customers at once.
Other businesses in stage 3, like gyms, must still remain closed.
