  • Salons and barbershops
  • Real estate services
  • Car dealerships
  • Commercial building management
  • Offices (though many companies will keep working remotely, office will be reopening with new safety guidelines)
  • Playgrounds (with “social distancing ambassadors“)
  • Houses of worship can reopen at 25% capacity
