Nail salons, additional personal care businesses to reopen Friday

Additional personal care businesses, including nail salons and body art shops, may reopen in Riverside County on Friday, June 19, under new state guidance. These businesses are part of the state’s additional businesses now included in accelerated stage two.

These businesses, and all others currently open in Riverside County, must take proper steps to protect employees and customers during this pandemic. Detailed industry-specific guidance issued by the state explains what measures are necessary to continue to curb the spread of coronavirus. The Riverside County Economic Recovery Task Force will provide local guidance for these industries as well.

Health officials remind residents that as people visit more places in the community, cases are expected to increase. For this reason, face coverings, social distancing, and hand washing are critical to helping slow the spread of coronavirus.

“We do not want to undo all the progress we’ve made in combating and slowing this disease,” said Vice Chair Karen Spiegel, Second District Supervisor. “We welcome more Riverside County businesses reopening and we encourage people to support those businesses that are protecting their employees, because it also means they care about protecting their customers.”

Personal care businesses eligible to open on Friday include:

  • Nail services
  • Facial and esthetician services
  • Shaving, waxing, and threading services
  • Massage therapy services
  • Body art, tattoo, and piercing services

In addition, the state provided clarification this week that wedding ceremonies may take place; however, wedding receptions are not allowed under the state’s stay at home order.

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.
