On May 15, previously closed retail businesses were allowed to reopen with extra guidelines in place to prevent COVID-19 spread. This includes furniture stores, boutiques and jewelry stores.
Salons, fitness centers and sit down service at bars and restaurants may reopen during Phase 1.
Guidelines for businesses under Phase 1
Reopening in some parts of the state does not mean back to business as usual. Large gatherings are still prohibited and residents are still being asked to stay home whenever possible. Governor Brown has said people from unopened counties should not travel to other counties to visit salons, restaurants etc.
