Great news, everyone! On January 25, 2021, the California Department of Public Health announced that the recent Regional Stay-at-Home Order has lifted and regions throughout California have reentered the Purple Tier of Covid-19 restrictions.
This means that restaurants may now offer outdoor dining and hair salons, barbershops, nail salons, skin care spas, massage studios, and tattoo parlors may reopen.
You're invited to call to your favorite hair professional or personal service provider and make an appointment. But please be patient - the announcement was a surprise, and it may take a day or two for businesses to get up and running again.
The coronavirus remains prevalent here, so please continue to follow the mask and social distancing protocols required by Monterey County to keep everyone safe. Be aware that most restaurants continue to offer take-out, curbside pickup, and delivery, while many retail stores welcome orders online and over the phone along with curbside pickup and shipping.
