Kern County is now among those that must close certain businesses because of COVID-19 concerns.
Gov. Gavin Newsom on July 13 rolled back some reopenings in Los Angeles County. Those that were affected include: dine-in restaurants; wineries and tasting rooms; movie theaters; card rooms; zoos and museums; nail salons; hair salons; barbershops; and family entertainment centers.
Bars, pubs, breweries and brewpubs were required to close all operations, outdoor and indoor.
Restaurants could remain open for outdoor dining, takeout and delivery, if applicable.
Kern County officials received confirmation Friday from the governor’s office that they have remained on the county data monitoring list for three consecutive days and are required to shut down the following industries or activities unless they can be modified to operate outside or by pick-up:
• Gyms and fitness centers.
• Places of worship and cultural ceremonies.
• Offices for non-critical infrastructure sectors.
• Personal care services, such as nail salons and body waxing.
• Hair salons and barber shops with updated guidance.
• Shopping malls.
Shops that offer tattoos, piercings and electrolysis may not be operated outdoors and must close.
Newsom has not provided an end date for these modifications.
