1975 - Henry Mayo Newhall (Memorial) Hospital opens with 100 beds [story]
HMNMH


The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health has modified its current Health Officer Order to allow re-opening of nail salons, cosmetology services, tattoo parlors, bars and more as of Friday, June 19.

Also allowed to reopen Friday:

* Piercing salons

* Spas offering aesthetic and massage services

* Tanning salons

* Casinos, card rooms and satellite wagering sites

* Wineries not anchored to food services

These businesses will be able to open, in some cases at limited capacity, once they have the appropriate infection control and distancing requirements in place.

In addition, protests and faith-based services held outdoors will no longer have limits on how many people can participate, starting Friday.

Public health guidance documents will be posted here as soon as they are available: publichealth.lacounty.gov/media/Coronavirus.

Los Angeles County is moving forward in its Roadmap to Recovery by reopening additional personal and recreational services to residents including nail salons, bars and casinos.

Although overall case counts are increasing as testing becomes more widespread and there is more community transmission, the county continues to see steady decreases in the rate of COVID-19 infections and virus-related hospitalizations and deaths.

The county continues to actively monitor the spread of the virus and the capacity of the healthcare system to provide residents with essential services. COVID-19 is still present in Los Angeles County, and the threat of this deadly virus remains.

However, the county is in line with California guidelines, and our key metrics reflect that compliance. Los Angeles County’s seven-day death average has not increased, the three-day hospitalization average is down five percent and the seven-day testing average is well above the State’s requirement at 17,000 tests conducted per day.

In addition, the positivity rate is eight percent, which is in line with the State’s requirements.

Detailed data and metrics on the reopening guidelines can be found here.

L.A. County remains in Phase 3 of the State’s Resilience Roadmap.

Residents must continue to practice physical distancing, wear cloth face coverings and follow Public Health directives.

If at any time the county’s rate of infection and other key metrics demonstrate a rapid acceleration of new cases that threatens to overwhelm the healthcare system, the Public Health and the Board of Supervisors may need to limit future re-openings or close reopened sectors.

Getting a manicure, a massage or a tattoo, or going to a card room will be a different experience than it was before the pandemic. Each sector reopening will have strict infection control directives in place. Please see below for highlights from each sector.

Just as is required for all out-of-home activities, visitors and staff will have to practice physical distancing and wear cloth face coverings. There will be limited capacity and enhanced cleaning and disinfecting procedures. People feeling sick should stay home.

These additional re-openings follow other significant elements of the economy and community that have begun reopening and operating with limits and safeguards, including gyms, day camps, museums, spectator-free sports, hair salons, barbershops, religious services, retail, restaurants, beaches and trails.

Still closed are movie theaters, live performance theaters, entertainment centers, concert halls and venues, stadiums, arenas, gaming facilities, theme parks, lounges and nightclubs, hot tubs, steam rooms and saunas not located on a residential property and festivals.

The plans for reopening are part of a phased progression that provides residents, employees and customers with safety protections to slow the spread of COVID-19.
