California Public Health Officials Provide COVID-19 Update

Given the state's vast geographic diversity, many counties have attested to epidemiological readiness and overall preparedness and are able to move at their own pace through the reopening process depending on local conditions. California provides guidance on how local jurisdictions should modify operations to reduce risk for infection should the local jurisdiction decide to reopen a specific sector. Local officials in counties with attestations determine when specific sectors of their economy that have state guidance posted will reopen.

 

  • Expanded Personal Care Services
    The guidance for expanded personal services for counties with attestations, which includes personal care that requires touching a client’s face, e.g. facials, electrolysis, and waxing. This guidance also applies to esthetician, skin care, and cosmetology services; electrology; nail salons; body art professionals, tattoo parlors, and piercing shops; and massage therapy (in non-healthcare settings).

On June 12, the California Department of Public Health released guidance for nail salons and other personal care services.

As Dr. Sonia Angell, State Public Health Officer and Director of the California Department of Public Health reminded, "COVID-19 remains a real threat to Californians. Protect yourself and those around you by keeping a physical distance of six feet, wearing a face covering, and washing hands frequently.”
