SAN FRANCISCO, CA --- Today, San Francsico announced the next phase of the City’s reopening will begin on Monday, June 29. Some businesses and activities originally planned to open in mid-July or later will be allowed to open, including hair salons, barbers, museums, zoos, tattoo parlors, massage establishments, nail salons and outdoor bars. Once the City’s request for a variance from the California Department of Public Health is approved, and as long as San Francisco continues meetings several key health indicators, the City will allow these businesses and social activities to resume with required safety protocols in place.

Assessor Carmen Chu, co-chair of the Economic Recovery Task Force, issued the following statement:
“The Task Force has been working hard to support local businesses on reopening. Moving forward with opening personal services is especially important because unlike other types of businesses, nail salons, barbershops and aestheticians haven't been able to continue through online sales or offer services at curbside. In addition, from an equity perspective, these businesses also disproportionately impact women and communities of color."
