According to a release from the County of Los Angeles Public Health Department, Los Angeles County has met the threshold for the less restrictive orange tier in the State's Blueprint for a Safer Economy.

A revised Los Angeles County Health Officer Order will go into effect on Monday, April 5 at 12:01 a.m. to reflect newly permitted activities. This allows the County to follow the state guidelines and wait until three weeks are completed in the red tier to be sure that case numbers do not rise this third week since the County’s earlier re-openings.

On April 5, assuming County case numbers do not increase, hair salons, barbershops and personal care services can increase capacity to 75 percent with masks required, except for services where customers need to remove their masks. For services where customers must remove their face coverings, staff must wear a fitted N95 or a mask with a face shield.
