Hair salons and barbershops can open says California Governor

Governor Gavin Newsom announced on Tuesday that hair salons and barbershops in all but 11 counties will be allowed to reopen with newly released safety guidelines.

Riverside County is one the 47 counties that was allowed to reopen these businesses.

Over the past couple of days, houses of worshipmallsdine-in restaurants, and casinos have reopened across the Coachella Valley & Riverside County.

Newsom warned again, however, that as more businesses reopen, the
danger of COVID-19 spreading will be heightened.

"We're moving forward. We're not looking back, but we are walking into the unknown, the untested, literally and figuratively," he said. "And we have to be guided by the data that brought us to this place in the first place, that is, guided by these principles of openness and transparency, principles where all of us are required to do a little bit more and little bit better to make sure we're (preventing) the spread of this virus as we meaningfully reopen the economy of the state.''

The Governor also stated that this order does not allow nail salons or fitness gyms to reopen, they remain in the stage 3 opening plan.

The governor said the guidance will be released Wednesday for businesses such as summer camps and child care facilities. Guidelines for film and television production had been expected to be released on Monday, but Newsom said the state is still working with industry officials and unions to finalize those plans.
