Here's what can and can't open on Aug. 31 in SoCal under Gov. Newsom's new framework

Wondering which businesses in Southern California can reopen? Check out our new list with the state's latest guidance.
California has moved to a new color-coded tier system to track the latest COVID-19 trends across California counties, which lays down the framework for additional businesses, including nail and hair salons, to reopen across Southern California.

Gov. Gavin Newsom said 38 counties, which are home to 87% of the state's population, are in the Purple tier, which signifies COVID-19 is still considered "widespread." Those counties, which includes most throughout the Southland, are:

Alameda, Amador, Butte, Colusa, Contra Costa, Fresno, Glenn, Imperial, Inyo, Kern, Kings, Los Angeles, Madera, Marin, Mendocino, Merced, Monterey, Orange, Placer, Riverside, Sacramento, San Benito, San Bernardino, San Joaquin, San Luis Obispo, San Mateo, Santa Barbara, Santa Clara, Santa Cruz, Solano, Sonoma, Stanislaus, Sutter, Tehama, Tulare, Ventura, Yolo and Yuba counties.

Despite the state guidelines authorizing their reopening, Los Angeles County officials said Friday the current local health order does not permit indoor operations for nail salons and limited capacity opening of indoor shopping malls.

"As such, since County orders may be more restrictive than State guidance, all current restrictions remain in place until the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health and the Board of Supervisors have an opportunity to review the suggested guidance from the State and take actions that are appropriate for our County," officials said in a statement.

Most non-essential businesses cannot reopen in these counties, but here's what can, effective Aug. 31:
