Over the next 10 days, Los Angeles County will allow some businesses to resume limited operations — . a move that comes even though the county failed to advance in the state's COVID-19 reopening system.

Here's what's new:

  • Indoor malls can reopen at 25% capacity, though food courts must remain closed.
  • Nail salons can restart some indoor services also with 25% capacity.
  • Outdoor gaming will be allowed for card rooms — with no food or beverage service.

County public health director Barbara Ferrer says officials signed off on those businesses after monitoring post-Labor Day case data:

"In order to keep businesses and schools open and progress to tier two, we have to continue to be extraordinarily cautious, and to use every single tool we have available that's been proven to reduce transmission."

The county will announce reopening dates for the respective sectors on Friday.
