July 18, 2020
The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health announced a revision to the Health Officer Order to align with Gov. Newsom’s directives and require the closure of additional indoor operations for certain sectors:
- Gyms and fitness centers
- Personal care services (including nail salons, massage parlors, and tattoo parlors)
- Hair salons and barbershops
- Indoor malls
- Offices of non-critical infrastructure sectors
- Indoor protests
- Places of worship
Bars, indoor dining at restaurants remain closed and all events and gatherings unless specifically allowed by this Order remain prohibited.
Also, the Health Officer Order requires businesses with three or more known cases of COVID-19 within the workplace over the span of 14 days, to report the outbreak to the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (Public Health). Employers who have one known case within the workplace must have a protocol that requires that person to self-isolate at home and anyone exposed to self-quarantine.
All of businesses must adhere to LA County's reopening protocols and guidelines to help workplaces reopen safely. Physical distancing, wearing face coverings, and frequent hand washing will remain critically important for the foreseeable future.
For more information on the stages to reopen, view the Recovery Framework Presentation.

Below are LA County's reopening protocols for businesses within these sectors to follow prior to reopening.
