Statement of the County of Santa Clara Public Health Department Regarding the State of California’s New COVID-19 Regulatory Framework
Under the new framework announced by the State of California earlier today, hair salons and barbershops that follow the safety guidelines put in place by the county and state will be allowed to open for indoor operations effective Monday, August 31, 2020.
Indoor malls, which the state previously closed in Santa Clara County, can also reopen under the State’s new framework, but only at 25% capacity.
We continue to evaluate the State’s new framework and its impact on our county, and we will provide additional information as it becomes available. The Santa Clara County Health Officer’s local Risk Reduction Order and related directives remain in effect and include directives that all hair salons and barbershops and shopping malls must follow as they resume indoor operations:
