LA County's Variance Approved: What Does It Mean?
This approval means LA County can safely allow critical sectors of the economy and community to begin serving residents. The County has demonstrated that it has controlled the spread of the virus; is protecting residents and essential workers; has capacity to test more than 75% of its residents; and has sufficient hospital capacity and contact tracers on the ground.

  • it has controlled the spread of the virus,
  • it’s protecting residents and essential workers,
  • it has the capacity to test more than 75 percent of its residents, and
  • has sufficient hospital capacity and contact tracers on the ground.

How it impacts you:
Since LA County is now in the advanced stages of Phase 2 of the  State’s Resilience Roadmap , you will now begin to see the re-opening of more small and locally-owned businesses across the County. It means those sectors are now able to return to work and you may be able to further support your favorite local shop or restaurant in-person.
These businesses have now been allowed to re-open in LA County, with the appropriate safeguards in place:

Hair Salons & Barbershops

  • Physical distancing measures will be in place.
  • Employees and customers will be screened for symptoms, including cough and fever. Clients feeling unwell should reschedule their appointment.
  • Everyone, including clients, must wear cloth face coverings while in the salon or barber shop and clients are encouraged to wear face coverings with earloops to ensure the face covering does not interfere with the hair service.
  • Magazines, coffee and other amenities will not be available.
  • Clients are encouraged to use credit cards and contactless payment systems. If electronic or card payment is not possible, customers should come with exact cash payment or check, if available.
  • Stylists may only serve one client at a time.
  • Detailed protocols will be issued soon.
  • Still closed: nail salons, spa services (including massage, facials and waxing)

In-Person Dining

  • Physical distancing measures will be in place.
  • Employees and customers will be screened for symptoms, including cough and fever. Patrons feeling unwell should not eat at a restaurant.
  • Employees are required to wear cloth face coverings and face shields.
  • Outdoor seating and curbside pickup are prioritized.
  • Reservations will be encouraged.
  • Customers will be asked to wait for their table in their cars or outside the restaurant to prevent crowds from gathering.
  • Diners must wear cloth face coverings when not eating.
  • Bar areas will be closed.
  • Occupancy capacity will be limited to 60% for the next three weeks.
  • Detailed protocols will be issued soon.

Public and private gatherings of people outside of a single household unit are not permitted, except for public protests and faith-based services, which are permitted to operate with limits on the number of participants.
Everyone must continue to follow physical distancing and infection control protocols and wear a cloth face covering when in contact with others not in your household. If at any time, the County’s rate of infection and other key metrics return to unsafe numbers, the Department of Public Health can limit or close reopened sectors.
