Permits Available for Outdoor Hair, Nail, Massage Services

Post Date:07/21/2020 3:43 pm

Newport Beach business owners seeking to provide outdoor hair, nail and massage services are invited to apply for a free City permit.

Permits are being issued under the City’s “Fast Track Back to Business” program, established last month to allow restaurants and other commercial businesses to expand into parking lots, sidewalks, or other private and public property to meet State of California physical distancing requirements.

On Monday, July 20, Gov. Gavin Newsom announced that, in addition to outdoor dining, hair and nail salons and massage therapy can be provided outdoors, under newly released guidelines. Businesses that require hygienic equipment, such as tattoo and piercing shops, are not permitted to operate outdoors.

Under the City’s emergency temporary use permit, businesses may use parking areas and other property in a manner that provides adequate distancing and does not create a public hazard. Businesses are inspected to ensure compliance with the permit conditions.

Approved businesses may use temporary banners to promote their services.

COVID-19 Coronavirus

The Federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is responding to an outbreak of respiratory disease caused by a novel (new) coronavirus that was first detected in China and has now been detected globally. The virus has been named “SARS-CoV-2” and the disease it causes has been named “coronavirus disease 2019” (abbreviated “COVID-19”).

The City of Newport Beach is working with federal, state, and local partners including the CDC, the OC Health Care Agency (OCHCA), and health care providers to prepare and appropriately care for people who may be at risk for illness associated with COVID-19 or who have tested positive for COVID-19. This is a rapidly changing situation, and we will share more as we are updated from our colleagues at the local, state and/or federal level.

Help Prevent the Spread of Coronavirus

  • The Governor of California enacted an Executive Order for all individuals living in the State of California to stay home or at their place of residence except for essential needs
  • It is imperative for everyone to practice social distancing by keeping at least six feet away from others when performing essential need activities outside of your homes.
  • Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Throw the tissue in the trash after you use it.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after you cough or sneeze. Alcohol-based hand cleaners are also effective.
  • Try to avoid close contact with sick people.
  • If you get sick with influenza, the CDC recommends that you stay home from work or school and limit contact with others to limit spreading the infection.
