Santa Barbara County nail salons allowed to resume indoor operations


SANTA BARBARA COUNTY, Calif. - Nail salons in California will be allowed to operate indoors once again.

On Tuesday, Gov. Gavin Newsom and California public health officials announced modified statewide health guidelines to allow nail salons to operate indoors and physician-ordered electrolysis services to resume with modifications.

Santa Barbara County Public Health Officer Dr. Henning Ansorg issued a modified health order Wednesday which allows for the industries to resume business. The order went into effect at 5 p.m.

The order, which can be found online, lays out the state's guidance to allow for reopening. Each business must submit an attestation with the County of Santa Barbara before opening.

At this time, tattoo parlors, businesses that offer body piercings, and non-medical electrolysis services are still prohibited.
