Los Angeles County has issued an updated health officer order which continues to relax restrictions during the pandemic recovery.
On Oct. 1, nail salons were allowed to reopen in L.A. County indoors at 25% capacity. On Oct. 5, cardrooms were allowed to resume outdoor operations as long as food and beverages are not served at the tables. Indoor shopping malls were also able to reopen beginning Oct. 7 at 25% capacity.
L.A. County also announced outdoor playgrounds can reopen at the discretion of cities. The city of Beverly Hills will be reviewing the protocols by L.A. County and will determine a reopening date for its playgrounds in the near future. Playgrounds remain closed in West Hollywood, according to the city’s website.
This update allows businesses in the city of Beverly Hills that fall within these categories to begin operating on each specified date if County Department of Public Health guidelines and appendix protocols can be met. When provided by the county, the updated appendix will be available at beverlyhills.org/coronavirus.
Nail salons are encouraged to continue operating outdoors through the city of Beverly Hills OpenBH program, as limited capacity for inside services will continue. For information, visit beverlyhills.org/openbh.
The new county order also allowed for school waiver applications for in-person instruction for students in grades TK-2 to be submitted beginning Oct. 5. Waivers will be available online at publichealth.lacounty.gov and applications will be received and reviewed by Public Health in consultation with the state. Schools must follow all required school reopening protocols for infection control, distancing and cohorting. Every school that reopens will receive a site visit from Public Health.
