The State of California amended the Stay at Home Order once again and is easing restrictions to move into of Phase 3 of the State’s Resilience Roadmap.

This step allows for counties that have met the State variance criteria set forth by the State Department of Public Health to conditionally allow for barbershops and hair salons to reopen.

On May 23 the State determined that Orange County has met the variance criteria, which now allows for barbershops and hair salons to conditionally reopen.

The State has prepared a guidance document for these businesses, which can be viewed at

This information comes after receiving notice this past Saturday that in-person dining and retail stores were able to conditionally reopen.

However, a number of businesses are to remain closed, such as nail salons, tattoo parlors, gyms, bars, movie theaters, and community centers.

The State of California has provided business guidance documents that are designed to support a safe, clean environment for workers. Business owners and operators are encouraged to utilize these important documents as they prepare to reopen and operate their businesses.

These documents can be viewed by visiting the State’s COVID-19 industry guidance webpage at

In light of the recent allowances for certain businesses to conditionally reopen, the County of Orange has scheduled three upcoming webinars to further explain the new orders and answer questions.

The webinars will be held on May 28, May 29 and May 30 from 3:30-5 p.m.
