Effective Friday, June 19, 2020 additional personal services within counties with attestations (including Mono County) are permitted to reopen with modifications, by approval from the Mono County Health Officer. These services include personal care that requires touching a client’s face:
- Esthetician Services
- Skin Care Services
- Cosmetology Services
- Nail Salons
- Body Art Services
- Tattoo Parlors
- Body Piercing
- Massage Therapy (in non-health care settings)
The California Department of Public Health has released interim business guidelines for these personal service business sectors, accessed here: https://covid19.ca.gov/pdf/expanded-personal-services.pdf.
The guidance includes stringent protections intended to support a safe, clean environment for workers and customers, and is instructive on how businesses should operate during the COVID-19 pandemic to reduce the risk of transmission. The Mono County Health Department and Public Health Officer have reviewed the guidelines and determined them to be adequate to address the local reopening on June 19. No additional guidelines were proposed.
Mono County and Town of Mammoth Lakes Business operators within these sectors must visit the Business Resources page of the Mono County Coronavirus Response web portal (www.monohealth.com/coronavirus) to review all applicable local and State guidelines. Additionally, prior to reopening, every business in Mono County is required to self-report on meeting all applicable Federal, State, and County requirements using the Self-Certification Portal.
To support adherence to the Self-Certification process, Dr. Tom Boo, Mono County Public Health Officer, previously issued an Order outlining all practices, measures and requirements contained in the Business Guidelines as requirements which must be implemented and followed by businesses operating within Mono County.
Mono County and the Town of Mammoth Lakes will be providing proactive outreach and education within the business community to ensure safety and compliance as these business sectors reopen, and the Quality Assurance team may be randomly visiting local businesses to verify safety measures are being applied and followed.
For additional information regarding business sector reopening guidelines, please send an email to: COVID19Help@mono.ca.gov or contact the Emergency Operations Center (760) 932-5650.
Please contact your local Chamber of Commerce for information or resources related to your business operating during the Coronavirus pandemic.
We encourage everyone to #STAY SAFE TO STAY OPEN!
