BAKERSFIELD, Calif. — Kern County Chief Administrative Officer Ryan Alsop announced that nail salons throughout the state, along with Kern County, may begin indoor operations with adaptations.

Alsop said it does not matter what the tier status of the county is, nail salons will be able to reopen as long as they follow state and county health guidelines.

Nail salons were given the go-ahead from the state during the COVID-19 update from the California Department of Public Health. State officials said it is up to the individual county to determine how to resume indoor operations.

Alsop said reopening of indoor operations will be limited, with restrictions and adaptations. Officials are awaiting potential updated State guidance for this industry.
