Tattoo parlors, body-piercing studios and tanning salons can reopen in Palm Beach County Monday, as long as they follow necessary COVID-19 health and safety guidelines.
Palm Beach County issued an executive order Sunday allowing the reopening of these businesses, but they must adhere to guidelines from the Florida Department of Health. According to the executive order, county and local law enforcement will enforce the new reopening order, but officials said if they follow guidelines, the practices should be safe.
“These establishments have a low risk of transmission or low risk of community spread when facial coverings, physical distancing, enhanced cleaning protocols and proper guidelines are followed,” the order read.
The move comes less than two weeks after Gov. Ron DeSantis said he was considering allowing South Florida to move into Phase 2 of reopening, which would open these types of businesses and others in Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach Counties.
