Update on Reopening Schedule, Nail Salons Permitted to Reopen, Kids at Play, All Families Need Help, and Great Plates Delivered
The County of Los Angeles is regularly updating resources on COVID-19 and offers today’s update in an effort to keep you and yours informed. Please share the following up-to-date information:
Nail Salon Re-Openings
The County’s percent test positivity has fallen significantly from an average of about 8% in July to about 3% in September. Now that the county has seen stabilizing or declining numbers across metrics, the Board of Supervisors approved several Public Health recommendations for the staggered reopening of several sectors permitted by the State for counties in Tier 1 of the Blueprint for a Safer Economy.
Beginning today, nail salons may reopen for limited indoor services at 25 percent occupancy.
Over the next 10 days, the following sectors will be allowed to reopen once they implement the required protocols for infection control and distancing:
- Monday 10/5: Cardrooms (at 25% capacity for outdoor operations only); TK-2 Waiver Process
- Wednesday 10/7: Indoor malls (at 25% capacity)
- Breweries and Wineries serving a meal are still pending a reopening date.
For more information and details on reopening guidelines, please visit The Department of Public Health.
Kids at Play
Outdoor playgrounds may reopen at the approval and discretion of cities and the County Parks and Recreation Department. Parents and children age two years old and older must always wear a cloth face covering, avoid people not in their household, and sanitize hands before and after using playground equipment. There is no eating or drinking allowed at the playground. Indoor playgrounds remain closed.

All Families Need Help
The Department of Child and Family Services (DCFS) and 2-1-1 LA invite you to share the good news about free services and resources available to Los Angeles County families. Because we believe that when families are strong, children thrive!
Our goal is to make it easy for families to seek help by way of Prevention and Aftercare Services before their needs or challenges become unmanageable. By connecting families to helpful resources close to home, you will be enhancing the child safety net for homebound families.
Here is a link to the “All Families Need Help” digital materials in English and Spanish that you may customize with your own logo and share on social media. Thank you in advance for being one of our valued community partners. We cannot do this work alone.
COVID-19 Safety Compliance Certification Program
LA County is helping train businesses on the implementation of COVID-19 safety protocols through a no-cost online training course called the COVID-19 Safety Compliance Certification Program (CSCCP). Once completed, business owners receive a certificate, and window seal to display on their storefront, which can reassure employees and customers alike that the business is following COVID-19 infection control and physical distancing requirements.
If you have not yet completed the CSCCP course or want to learn more about it, visit publichealth.lacounty.gov/eh/covid19cert.htm. Help support your employees, customers, and community while on the Road to Recovery.
Great Plates Delivered has been extended through October 9th. LA County’s meal assistance program offers eligible seniors with three (3) home-delivered meals a day. Seniors over 65, seniors 60-64 years of age who have been diagnosed or exposed to COVID-19 or those at high-risk for COVID-19 may qualify. When you help a senior connect to Great Plates Delivered, you’re also helping your local restaurant, hospitality and transportation community get back to work.
