Among the business that are not allowed at this stage include some personal care businesses, including nail salons, threading, and waxing, as well as youth sports, team sports, weddings, and libraries.

County health officials emphasize that as residents visit more places in the community, it is ever-more important for residents to take steps to protect themselves from coronavirus. “We have long looked forward to reopening more Riverside County businesses, which provide valuable goods, services, and jobs vital to the fabric of our economy,” said Vice Chair Karen Spiegel. “It’s very important that while visiting these businesses, all residents continue to do their part to slow the spread of the disease by wearing face coverings and maintaining six feet from others.”

Health officials encourage residents to visit businesses that are taking safety precautions for their employees and customers by following local guidance and industry-specific guidance issued by the state. Additional business guidance, with input from the Riverside County Economic Recovery Task Force, will be made available at

Testing continues to be an integral focus as more residents visit more businesses. Health officials encourage residents of all ages to get tested, with or without symptoms, to identify where the disease is currently present in the community and where it is not.
