The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health has announced that the following non-essential businesses may begin curbside pick-up starting on Friday, May 8:
· Clothing stores
· Music stores
· Sporting goods stores
· Toy stores
· Car dealership showrooms (open for sales with adherence to distancing and infection control protocols)
These businesses must adhere to distancing and infection control protocols established by the County of Los Angeles and State of California. These protocols will be shared by the County and State later today here and here.
There are 3 things these businesses can do right now to prepare for this limited re-opening on Friday, May 8th:
- Make sure your online presence is up-to-date so customers can easily place orders for curbside pick-up and that your phone recording directs customers on how to place pick-up orders.
- Once curbside pick-up goes into effect, businesses should have plans in place for employees to bring orders to customers curbside. For businesses in Beverly Hills, you can put in a request for the City to designate a pick-up meter curbside outside your business by emailing BusinessRecovery@beverlyhills.org
- Business owners should make sure that social distancing measures are in place to protect employees and customers including having all employees wear face coverings when in Beverly Hills.
Non-essential businesses, which can begin curb-side pickup on Friday, May 8, are still encouraged to promote employee telecommuting as much as possible, when reasonable.
