COVID-19 and Humboldt
There Are Now 114 Places to Get Your Hair Cut in Humboldt, But Safety and Precaution are More Important Than Ever, Says Joint Information Center
From the Humboldt County Joint Information Center:
A total of 114 hair salons and barber shops have been certified by
the Humboldt County Emergency Operations Center (EOC) and have been
cleared to reopen today.
County residents are
encouraged to call ahead of time before visiting any recently
reopened business to find out about alterations to services, such as
hours of operation and any safety measures that may be in place.
Please note some businesses are choosing not to resume in-person
services at this time.
Health Officer Dr. Teresa Frankovich continues to monitor local
COVID-19 test results and epidemiologic data to determine the timing
of further reopening of industry sectors. “Right now, our
conditions are favorable,” Dr. Frankovich said. “Public Health
will pay close attention to the progression of the virus in our
county to set the pace going forward.”
Based on local
COVID-19 conditions, the Health Officer is expected to clear three
additional sectors in the following order:
RV parks and Outdoor Recreation –
Reopening date likely to be announced mid-week. State and county
campgrounds may choose not to open immediately.
and lodging for leisure travel/tourism – no sooner than
June 12, possibly later
– no sooner than June 12, possibly later.
businesses are opening and we start to see some seasonal recreational
activities resume, it may be tempting to pay less attention to
physical distancing and requirements to wear facial coverings,” Dr.
Frankovich said. “I can’t stress enough that this virus is still
circulating in Humboldt County, and as residents are more active
outside their homes and more travelers arrive here, these safety
measures become more, not less important. This is how we will be able
to keep moving forward while protecting each other.”
sectors, businesses, establishments or activities are not
permitted at this time to operate by the State of
California, and a timeline for reopening has not yet been set:
services such as nail salons, tattoo parlors, body waxing
playgrounds such as bounce centers, ball pits and laser tag
and live theater
