Indoor shopping malls, nail salons, cardrooms and outdoor playgrounds in Los Angeles County will be allowed to start reopening soon with restrictions, the county's health director said Wednesday.



Nail salons have already reopened at 25% capacity in Los Angeles County.

Indoor malls are expected to reopen Wednesday. Malls will be limited to 25% capacity and all food courts and common areas will remain closed.

Playgrounds will be allowed to open shortly at the discretion of individual cities, while guidelines allowing wineries and breweries to reopen are expected soon.

In a big move, L.A. County area schools will be able to apply for waivers to allow them to resume in-person instruction for pre-K through second grade.

The reopenings are being allowed as Los Angeles continues to see modest improvements in its coronavirus positivity rates, hospitalizations and new daily cases. Officials had been concerned about a possible surge after Labor Day but that turned out to not be the case.
