Last week Orange County decided that people didn’t have to put on face coverings in public (though they’re still recommended and required for employees at essential businesses). 

Meanwhile, in Los Angeles County, hair salons, gyms and restaurants have been allowed to reopen, albeit with restrictions. Yesterday, the LA Times reported that nearly 1,000 of the 2,000 restaurants inspected by L.A. County public health officials weren’t in compliance with those restrictions. 

We check in on the latest from Orange County. Plus, we want to hear from you. If you’ve gotten a haircut, ate out at a restaurant or have engaged with reopening in some way, tell us about your experience by calling 866-893-5722.
