Support For Small Business You'll Want To Know About

Updated 05/27/2020

Business Openings

Los Angeles residents are doing their part to follow the city's "Safer at Home" Order, which has helped slow the spread of COVID-19. Although the curve has flattened, the COVID-19 pandemic still remains in Los Angeles. On Tuesday May 26th, Mayor Garcetti announced that all retail businesses may reopen for in-person shopping. This does not include personal services such as hair salons, nail salons, and barbershops. Please see the Close Contact protocols for those industries. Additionally, this does not include dine-in services for restaurants at this time.

Please note that face coverings are required for all customers and workers at these businesses, and adherence to physical distancing and infection control protocols are required.

If you're a small business who is currently operating or planning to begin operating soon, the following resources for small businesses are now available.
