Culver City continues to cooperate with the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (LACDPH) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) to respond to the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) in Los Angeles County.
On March 11, 2020, the COVID-19 outbreak was characterized as a pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO). A Proclamation of Local Emergency in Culver City was signed on March 14, 2020 and ratified by City Council on March 18, 2020. Since, the City has issued a public order and 21 supplements.
Everyone must continue to practice physical distancing of at least six feet apart and wear a clean cloth face covering that securely covers both your nose and mouth when around people outside of your household. Your cloth face covering protects them. Their cloth face covering protects you. More information on cloth face coverings.
On July 21, 2020, the City of Culver City issued the Twenty-First Supplement to Public Order, which allows for the outdoor operation of gyms, hair salons, barbershops and personal care establishments on private property. In order for an applicable business to conduct services in an outdoor space on private property, the business is required to apply for a NO-FEE Temporary Use Permit (TUP) with the City of Culver City.
For more information, please call (310) 253-5765 or email email@example.com.
LA County's Department of Public Health (DPH) has issued reopening protocols for the outdoor operation of hair salons, barbershops and personal care establishments. Below are highlights from the recently updated protocols:
- Businesses must establish an outdoor reception area where customers can check in while still following physical distancing guidelines
- Services that cannot be performed safely outdoors (or that would require a customer to have to enter the establishment) are not permitted.
- Outdoor shaded areas can be configured to block wind, but and cannot only be enclosed or partially enclosed on more than one side
- Businesses must comply with the Cal/OSHA standard for heat illness prevention for outdoor workers, including an effective heat illness prevention plan with written procedures on:
- Access to water, shade, and cool down breaks; emergency procedures for heat illness cases; monitoring of employees who are acclimatizing during a heat wave; and training on heat illness prevention and symptoms
- For resources (including Cal/OSHA FAQs, a webinar and a sample written plan), visit the Cal/OSHA heat illness prevention page.
- All establishments operating outdoors should have California Division of Occupational Safety and Health (Cal/OSHA) standard heat illness prevention plans and written procedures, as moving work outdoors creates additional hazards including the possibility of heat illness.
- Businesses offering electrology, tattooing, microblading & permanent make-up, and piercing services may not operate outside, because they are invasive procedures that require a controlled hygienic environment to be performed safely.
- Businesses must establish an outdoor reception area where customers can check in while still following physical distancing guidelines.
- Businesses which offer pedicures outdoors shall be limited to portable tubs/bowls, and all equipment must be cleaned and disinfected with an EPA-registered liquid disinfectant that is labeled as a bactericide, fungicide and virucide (refer to manufacturer’s instruction on mixture). Disinfection should occur inside the nail salon & not in the temporary outdoor setting.
Key Points to Keep in Mind
- The risk of COVID-19 remains high. Follow infection control practices at all times.
- Everyone must continue to practice physical distancing of at least six feet apart and wear a clean cloth face covering that securely covers both your nose and mouth when around people outside of your household. More information on cloth face coverings.
- The City’s new Order reiterates that all persons must wear a clean, cloth face covering over both their nose and mouth whenever they leave their place of residence and are or can be in contact with or walking near or past others who are non-household members in both public and private places, whether indoors or outdoors. This includes wearing a cloth face covering when patronizing a business
- Acceptable, reusable face covering options for the general public include: bandanas, neck gaiters, homemade face coverings, scarves, tightly woven fabric (such as cotton t-shirts and some types of towels).
The CDC provides instructions on its website for how to make several types of homemade face coverings, including from a t-shirt and a bandana without any sewing required. A sampling of manufacturers selling face coverings is also available.
- Face Coverings while exercising (e.g., walking, biking, jogging): It is suggested that a face covering be carried with you while exercising. Place the face covering over your nose and mouth while passing by others.
- Face Coverings for Children: Children under the age of 2 should NOT wear cloth face coverings. Those between the ages of 2-8 should use them under adult supervision to ensure that the child can breath safely and to avoid choking or suffocation. Children with breathing problems should not wear a face covering.
- When outside of your home, practice social distancing. Maintain a minimum physical distance of 6 feet between yourself and others.
- If you are mildly sick, stay home for at least 7 days or until 72 hours after being fever free, whichever is longer. Call your doctor if you are concerned and/or your symptoms worsen.
- Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
- Avoid touching your face with unwashed hands.
- More things you can do to prevent illness.
