Following LA County’s Department of Public Health, Gardena’s Reopening Guidelines will be broken down into five stages. Although there are specific requirements that your establishment is expected to follow, we understand that our Reopening Guidelines do not address every potential circumstance that may arise. We will progress to the next stages in accordance with the direction of LA County.
As of May 29, 2020, Restaurants are allowed to reopen for dine-in services at no more than 60% maximum occupancy with physical distancing protocols in place. Bar areas must remain closed and diners are required to wear face coverings when not eating. Barber shops and hair salons are also permitted to open with physical distancing and proper sanitation protocols in place. No walk-in appointments are allowed at this time, and appointments should be staggered to reduce reception congestion. Please be advised that nail salons and spa services, including massages, facials, and waxing, are still closed.
Lower-risk non-essential retail businesses, including those located in indoor malls and shopping centers, are allowed to open for in-person shopping with no more than 50% maximum occupancy and physical distancing protocols in place. Office worksites may open but telework is strongly encouraged. Houses of worship are permitted to resume in-person religious services and cultural ceremonies at no more than 25% maximum occupancy or 100 individuals, whichever is fewer. In addition, car dealership showrooms as well as manufacturing and logistics sector businesses that supply lower-risk retail businesses can also open with physical distancing and sanitation protocols in place.
The following businesses must remain closed at this time:
All businesses that are permitted to reopen must post the signage provided by the City and prepare, implement, and post the required protocols from LA County Department of Public Health prior to opening.
