Beverly Hills, CA (May 29, 2020) – The County of Los Angeles today issued an updated Health Officer Order which continues to relax restrictions during the recovery period from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Hair salons and barbershops can reopen and in-person dining in restaurants can resume with limited capacity and social distancing safeguards in place. This update allows businesses in the City of Beverly Hills that fall within these categories to begin operating immediately if County Department of Public Health guidelines can be met. Activities now permitted under the changes include:

Barbershops and hair salons

  • Physical distancing measures will be in place.
  • Employees and customers will be screened for symptoms. Clients feeling unwell should reschedule their appointment.
  • Everyone, including clients, must wear cloth face coverings while in the salon or barber shop and clients are encouraged to wear face coverings with earloops to ensure the face covering does not interfere with the hair service.
  • Magazines, coffee and other amenities will not be available.
  • Clients are encouraged to use credit cards and contactless payment systems. If electronic or card payment is not possible, customers should come with exact cash payment or check, if available.
