Santa Clara County: Newsom announces that hair and nail salons allowed to open outdoors

In a burst of relief for California workers and business owners, and the state economy in general, Governor Gavin Newsom is now allowing hair salons, barbershops, nail salons, skin care services, and massage services to reopen for business—outdoors.

Santa Clara County had been eagerly anticipating a return to such services slated for July 13, but people’s hopes were dashed when Newsom moved to keep those parts of the economy closed in light of rampant statewide disease spread and mounting hospitalizations. Santa Clara County’s presence on a state monitoring list as a result of its hospitalization figures has led to great caution in terms of its reopening efforts. 

But amid calls from the personal care industry for permission to work outdoors, where disease spread is lower and far less likely to occur, Newsom furnished today’s new order. The businesses that shall resume operations will do so amid an array of social distancing, masking, and sanitation requirements.

But for anyone in dire need of a haircut or a manicure, the time has come.
