New California COVID Guidelines Allow Shopping Malls, Hair Salons and Barbershops to Reopen for Indoor Services

California Governor Gavin Newsom announced a new color tier system for the state. San Bernardino and Riverside County remains at a “purple” which is the highest tier, meaning there is risk for widespread COVID transmission within the community. The new guidelines however allow for hair salons and barbershops to reopen for indoor services. The businesses must follow strict cleanliness guidelines and both employees and patrons are required to wear masks.

Shopping malls may also reopen at a limited capacity. County positivity rates must remain in a specific percentage bracket for at least 3 weeks before moving to the next color.

Gyms, bars and restaurants continue to remain closed for indoor services.
