Stage Two Business Reopening

As the County of Orange moves deeper into Stage Two of the  Governor Newsom's Resilience Roadmap, higher-risk workplaces in the expanded personal services sector are allowed to reopen with modifications in Orange County such as nail salons, waxing studios and tattoo parlors.

The OC Health Care Agency (HCA) encourages business owners and operators review the State’s industry reopening guidance and do the following:

  • Find the guidance that is most relevant to their respective industries.
  • Prepare a plan after reading.
  • Put the plan put it into action. 
  • Once completed, post the industry-specific checklist in their workplaces.

Before businesses who meet the Stage Two criteria take the step to re-open, the HCA strongly recommends they perform the following steps:

  1. Perform a detailed risk assessment and implement a site-specific protection plan.
  2. Train employees on how to limit the spread of COVID-19, including how to screen themselves for symptoms and stay home if they have them.
  3. Implement individual control measures and screenings.
  4. Implement disinfecting protocols.
  5. Implement physical distancing guidelines.
