Editor's note: The coronavirus news cycle is ever-changing and the response efforts continue to evolve. While we are striving to keep up with the latest on COVID-19, we strongly suggest referring to the CDC, World Health Organization, the state of California and the City of L.A. for the most updated information.
This story was originally published May 29 and updated on July 23.
Following Los Angeles County Department of Public Health's order earlier this week that stores and "low risk" businesses can reopen, local indoor and outdoor retail developments and boutiques are now cautiously welcoming shoppers. As of Friday morning, L.A. County received the OK from the state to reopen hair salons, barbershops, and in-person dining at restaurants, which could open as early as this weekend, reports the L.A. Times.
Per the revised order released May 26, shopping centers must implement extended safety measures, including installing hand sanitizing stations throughout their spaces, limiting the number of guests, disinfecting "high-touch surfaces," monitoring lines, posting signs to encourage face masks and social distancing, and other protocols.
Since stay-at-home orders began in mid-March, many L.A. and Orange County al fresco centers including The Grove (and fellow Caruso-owned properties The Americana at Brand and Palisades Village), Fashion Island, Platform, Row DTLA, and others have kept their properties open for the public to enjoy, and some also rolled out curbside pickup services.
Update 6/12: L.A. County announced that gyms, museums, day camps, campgrounds, music/TV/film production, hotels can reopen Friday, June 12.
Update 7/23: Following L.A. County's rollback of openings on July 13, businesses such as gyms, salons, personal care services, places of worship, bars, museums, indoor malls, and others must close.
