As far as state reopenings go, California Governor Gavin Newsom initially made it clear he was in no rush to reopen nonessential companies like hair salons due to COVID-19. However, during a live stream on Monday, May 18, Governor Newsom introduced he’s modifying his stay-at-home plan to enable some counties to transfer into section two and reopen ahead of anticipated.
Phase two of California’s reopening plan initially solely allowed lower-risk companies reminiscent of clothes shops, bookstores, sporting-good shops, and florists to open for curbside pickup and supply, however Newsom’s most up-to-date replace talked of reopening in-store retail and hair salons, as properly. “In our additional modifications, we’re moving forward to allow some of the larger counties to continue to make progress deeper into phase two, and to do so, effective immediately but on their own pace,” Newsom said during the press conference.
He defined that roughly 53 out of 58 counties could be eligible to transfer into section two, reopening hair salons in these counties inside the subsequent few weeks, so long as they meet the required standards. This consists of being able to improve COVID-19 testing and stabilize their hospitalization and case charges. Over the final 14 days, California noticed a decline in hospitalizations statewide, which sparked the change.
