The new order eases restrictions on most businesses and activities, while requiring updated social distancing protocols to be implemented at businesses. The order explicitly states that social distancing and the use of face coverings in public are critical to combating COVID-19, which “continues... to pose a severe risk to residents of our County.” Nail salons, barbershops, and gyms are among the businesses permitted to reopen, as long as they have an approved and implemented social distancing plan , beginning July 13.
