The state released a guide for how salons and barbershops can offer their services outdoors, a week after the indoor operations were shuttered in some 30 counties.

The California Department of Public Health said salons and barbershops could operate under a tent, canopy or other similar structure with no more than one side closed off ensuring proper ventilation.

Anything that would require a client to enter an enclosed facility is still not allowed.

The guidelines followed a July 13 order that closed indoor salons and barbershops in counties such as Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino and Santa Barbara where COVID-19 cases were ticking up.

Last week’s order also came with the shuttering statewide of indoor operations for restaurants, wineries, zoos, museums and movie theaters. All bar operations were ordered closed.
