On Friday, Alameda County issued Health Officer Orders to reopen outdoor swimming pools and outdoor hair salons, nail salons, barbershops, waxing services, skin care and non-medical massages.

Additionally, wineries in Alameda County can now offer outdoor tastings by appointment without needing to provide food. In alignment with the State’s Orders, this change does not apply to bars, breweries, pubs or brewpubs.

These orders exclude services that may require a client to remove their face covering, as well as eyebrow threading and waxing and eyelash treatments. Tattoos, piercings, and electrolysis are not allowed to operate indoors or outdoors in alignment with the State of California’s Health Officer Orders.

The orders will not go into effect until Friday, August 28, 2020, due to wildfire smoke which is contributing to unhealthy air quality across Alameda County.
