A statement from the city accompanying a copy of the order said “this new phase of reopening aligns with neighboring communities, moving Southern California towards a regional recovery and supporting our service-oriented businesses, many of which are small and locally-owned.
This step forward doesn’t mean the threat of COVID-19 is gone. Residents must continue to practice physical distancing, wear cloth face coverings, and follow all other public health guidelines in place.”

“Dining in restaurants and getting a haircut will be a different experience than we are used to. Specific guidelines for customers and employees at hair salons, barbershops and restaurants are listed below:

Barbershops and hair salons

  • Physical distancing measures will be in place.
  • Employees and customers will be screened for symptoms, including cough and fever. Clients feeling unwell should reschedule their appointment.
  • Everyone, including clients, must wear cloth face coverings while in the salon or barbershop, and clients are encouraged to wear face coverings with earloops to ensure the face covering does not interfere with 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.
  • Stylists may only serve one client at a time.

Personal grooming services still closed or prohibited at this time:

  • Nail salons
  • Spa services, including massage, facials and waxing
  • Body art facilities

In-person dining in restaurants

  • Physical distancing measures will be in place.
  • Employees and customers will be screened for symptoms, including cough and fever. Patrons feeling unwell should not eat at a restaurant.
  • Outdoor seating and curbside pickup are prioritized.
  • Reservations are encouraged.
  • Customers will be asked to wait for their table in their cars or outside the restaurant to prevent crowds from gathering.
  • Diners must wear cloth face coverings when not eating.
  • Bar areas will be open for dining only. No alcohol will be served in bar areas.
