PREVIOUS STORY: The California Business, Consumer Services and Housing agency announced that some businesses are expected to see new guidelines for operating outdoors.

Some services at businesses that include hair stylists, barbers, manicurists and estheticians would be allowed to operate outdoors under the new guidance.

The California State Board of Barbering and Cosmetology previously said that hair salons, barbershops and personal services in counties on the State monitoring list would be required to close operations. Gov. Newsom said they would be required to close indoor operations, but the board said the businesses could only operate indoors.

Monterey and San Benito Counties are on the state monitoring list.
