June 19, 2020

Dear Chamber Member: 

As of TODAY Friday, June 19, 2020 the City of Long Beach  Safer At Home Order has been amended to allow for the following industries in Long Beach will be  allowed to re-open with modifications:

  • Bars/Wineries

Bars and wineries may reopen at 50% capacity, with bar areas closed and with no standing permitted. Patrons may use restaurant-style seating. Patrons must wear a face covering when entering a facility or moving throughout a facility, and servers must wear a face covering and a face shield for protection when serving customers who are not wearing face coverings.

  • Nail Salons

Nail salons may reopen with restrictions and with proper safety protocols in place, such as a minimum six feet of distance between service stations, mandatory facial coverings for both employees and patrons, frequent sanitization of high-touch surfaces and limited patron capacity.

  • Religious services and cultural ceremonies (i.e. funerals) can now be conducted outside with modifications

There is no maximum attendance for outdoor religious services or cultural ceremonies (e.g. funerals), though attendees must have space to observe a minimum six feet of distance between those who do not live in the same household. Indoor religious services remain limited to 25% of occupancy or 100 people, whichever is less.

Next Friday June 26, 2020  the following industries in Long Beach will be  allowed to reopen with modifications: 

  • Personal Grooming - Cosmetology services, body-waxing, spas, massage, Facials, Waxing, Lash Extensions
  • Tattoo Parlors - Body art professionals and piercing 

The City has made the decision to allow for these industries to open based on current data and health trends.

Also, please keep in mind that each business is different and therefore some businesses are choosing not to open at this time, and rather choosing to open at their own pace. 

Still closed include the following:

  • Live Performances
  • Stadiums and Arenas 
  • Large Events
  • Theme Parks

More information on our re-openings and specific guidance will be available in the days ahead on the city website as well as at

...and that's Strictly Business!
