WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — Palm Beach County has obtained approval from the governor's office to reopen tattooing, body piercing and tanning establishments Monday.

The order, issued Sunday evening, states those businesses may operate with appropriate safety guidelines as outlined by the Florida Department of Health beginning at 12:01 a.m.

Those businesses haven't been operating in Palm Beach County since March, when Palm Beach County Mayor Dave Kerner announced that all non-critical businesses would be closed until further notice.

"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," Palm Beach County said in a summary of the order listed on its website.

The order applies to both incorporated and unincorporated areas of Palm Beach County.
