County Updates COVID-19 Guidelines: Hair Salons, Specialized K-12 Services

Alhambra , CA

The County of Los Angeles announced updates to its Health Officer Order on Wednesday.

Hair salons and barbershops are permitted to open their indoor operations at 25% capacity, effective as soon as business can comply with all required protocols.

County health officer Muntu Davis said those businesses who are operating outside should continue to do so and use the 25% occupancy for the specialized services they cannot perform outdoors.

Beginning Sept. 14, some K-12 in-person school services may be offered for “small, stable cohort of students” with individualized education programs, English language learners needing assessment or other services, prioritizing special in-school services for students with disabilities.

Alhambra Unified School District said it is awaiting next steps and guidance for when and how the district can comply with the directives.

The announcement comes after L.A. County Board of Supervisors met with the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health officials to discuss the Governor Gavin Newsom’s latest state directives from the Blueprint for a Safer Economy.

The Blueprint places counties in color-coded tiers based on risk level, evaluated on daily new cases per 100,000 people and seven-day positivity rate, labeled minimal, moderate, substantial or widespread.

If a county is in two tiers, for example, Los Angeles County is a “substantial” risk positivity rate and “widespread” risk for new cases, it will be placed in the more restrictive tier. Therefore, Los Angeles County is in the highest risk tier.

A county cannot move forward until it has met the criteria for the next least restrictive tier for at least two weeks.

Face coverings over the nose and mouth are still required when in public or around others.

The county now has 243,935 laboratory confirmed cases of COVID-19 with 5,878 deaths, and Alhambra has 1,153 reported cases of COVID-19 and 24 deaths.

When cautioning against group Labor Day celebrations, county officials pointed to spikes in cases after Memorial Day and Fourth of July that set the county’s recovery back by months.

“Please do enjoy the Labor Day holidays, but please do enjoy them safely so that in future holidays to come we can all enjoy them together,” Department of Health Services director Christina Ghaly said.
