In Palm Springs, city leaders maintain that masks and social distancing are still required.

The city of Palm Springs hosted a webinar for residents Thursday morning discussing the regulations for the reopening of restaurants, retail and hair salons/barbershops.

For restaurants, single-use menus, a lack of shared table items and tables spaced six feet apart are the new norm. For retail shop owners, they say face coverings must be worn by both employees and customers inside. Hand sanitizers should be in every store. Similar policies go for hair salons.
