Stanislaus County received notification Friday, June 12 that the State of California has posted new guidance to allow the future reopening of personal services (nail salons, tattoo parlors, massage businesses, etc.) in California. Stanislaus County does not intend to reopen these additional businesses immediately, but does encourage business owners to carefully review the guidelines and prepare themselves for a safe reopening to the public. Stanislaus County officials are hopeful that these new business categories could reopen as early as July 1, 2020, however that determination will be based on ongoing review of the spread of COVID-19 in Stanislaus County and the impact of previously approved openings for other business sectors, including bars, restaurants and gyms. The County will provide an update on the potential reopening of personal services on Monday, June 29, 2020.
