When you are eating at a restaurant, plan to wear a face covering when you are not eating. You can expect limited seating, sanitizing stations, servers with face coverings and potential symptom checks.
Beginning Friday, June 12 the following are permitted to reopen/resume: gyms and fitness centers, museums, galleries, hotels for leisure, day camps and their pools, film, TV and music production, stadiums and arenas (without spectators)
Restaurants, barber shops, and hair salons may now choose to reopen, but under specific guidelines. For example, hair salons and barber shops may only serve one client at a time, and everyone must wear a face covering. Nail salons and businesses providing spa or massage services, or other “close-contact services,” remain closed. Restaurants may operate at 60% capacity, but their bar areas remain closed.

As of May 14, 2020 the Safer LA Order was loosened to open parks, beaches and trails, but face masks are required at all times when out and beach parking lots are closed.
