COVID-19 Update and Fire Preparedness Webinar Opportunity

Email and Newsletter 2020


You may have heard the news: nail salons, massage therapy, esthetic services, cosmetology and skin care services can reopen outdoors in Marin County effective immediately.


Most personal services will be allowed to move forward in an outdoor setting with precautions in place to support a safe and clean environment outdoors for both employees and customers.


Per the state, indoor and outdoor services for tattooing, piercing and electrolysis must remain closed due to Marin’s status on the State of California’s County Monitoring List.


All Marin businesses must complete and implement a Site-Specific Protection Plan prior to reopening. Nail salons, massage therapy, esthetic services, skin care and cosmetology businesses operating outdoors are to follow the guidance for personal care services provided by the state. In addition, the state provides a checklist for personal care services to guide business owners through the modifications needed to transition traditionally indoor services to an outdoor environment. Once complete, businesses should post their completed Site-Specific Protection Plan for customers and employees to review.


Additional resources for business owners – including sample signage and sources for purchasing PPE – are available on the Marin Recovers Reopening Resources page.
