On 10/20/2020, the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) updated the Blueprint for a Safer Economy to allow all personal care services to operate indoors with modifications.

Based on further review of the evidence and the sector risk profiles, CDPH determined that personal services businesses have a similar risk profile to hair and nail salons with respect to the transmission of COVID-19. For all these sectors, CDPH has determined that the risk can be sufficiently mitigated with modifications to allow those services to resume indoor operations in Tier 1/Purple. The update applies to all counties, including Monterey County.

Personal care services, including esthetic, skin care, electrology, body art professionals, tattoo parlors, piercing shops, and massage therapy, must follow existing state guidance to create a lower risk environment for employees and the public.
