SAN FRANCISCO, CA --- The City and County of San Francisco today announced that outdoor personal services will resume in San Francisco, effective Tuesday, September 1, 2020. Outdoor gyms and fitness centers can reopen starting September 9, 2020. Outdoor personal services that can operate include haircuts, barber services, massages and nail services. Only those services where both clients and providers can be masked at all times are allowed to resume. The City has posted information and guidance in multiple languages for businesses and is conducting outreach to personal services businesses to ensure they have access to the guidance and are able to prepare accordingly.

Assessor Carmen Chu, co-chair of the Economic Recovery Task Force, issued the following statement:
“It’s important that we continue to find ways for business to reopen even if it means starting outdoors. The coming months will be the warmest, followed by the high retail season. Let’s give business a fighting chance and understand that the small sacrifices we individually make, like wearing a mask, can make the difference on reopening and help save a business.”
