Salons and barbershops, as well as houses of worship, may reopen in Coronado and across the region, per state and San Diego County health officials on Tuesday, May 26.

Places of worship will have to limit attendance to 25% of capacity, or 100 people or fewer, whichever of the two is smaller. Worshipers not in the same household will have to sit or stand six feet apart. Given the high risk of this activity, outdoor ceremonies are encouraged and vulnerable members of the population (over 65 years old, compromised immune system or underlying condition) are strongly encouraged to participate through streaming or some other form of remote technology. Check with your place of worship for more information.

Hair salons and barbershop employees will have to complete a health screening at the beginning and end of each shift and both stylists and customers must wear facial coverings for the duration of the hair appointment.

While the businesses may open immediately, certain services frequently offered are not yet allowed. This includes eyelash and eyebrow services, facials and shaves.

Stylists and barbers were allowed to reopen Wednesday, May 27, if they follow safety rules and post a reopening plan that meets County standards. New rules will require sanitation practices that can be found online.

Houses of worship also were allowed to reopen on May 27.
