Special Business Update for October 20, 2020   

Effective today, October 20, 2020, several types of personal services businesses are now allowed to operate indoors (with modifications) in Sonoma County.

City staff were just informed of this change, and we are thrilled to say the least! Please contact [email protected] if you have any questions or need assistance regarding this change or other business issues. We are here to help.

Per the State’s industry guidance web page:

Personal care services – updated October 20

All tiers can open indoors with modifications.

Follow this guidance for personal care services like nail salons, tattoo parlors, and body waxing to create a safer environment for workers and patrons. This guidance applies to services that require touching a client’s face, like facials, electrolysis, and waxing. It also applies to esthetic services, skin care, and massage therapy. Review the guidance, prepare a plan, and post the checklist for personal care services in your workplace to show customers and employees that you’ve reduced the risk and are open for business.

This guidance and checklist include additional considerations for:

  • Esthetic and skin care services
  • Electrology services
  • Nail services
  • Body art professionals, tattoo parlors, and piercing shops
  • Massage services (in non-healthcare settings)
