The City of Redondo Beach is following LA County Department of Health protocol in the re-opening of local businesses.  To see if and how your business can re-open, please review the regularly-updated LA County COVID-19 Business Summary Sheet.

COVID-19 Update:  

State Orders issued on July 13, 2020 have called for additional closures including: fitness centers, worship services, protests, offices for non-essential sectors, personal care services, like nail salons, body waxing and tattoo parlors, hair salons and barbershops, and malls.  Additionally, indoor dining will continue to be prohibited.  In response, an updated LA County Health Order was issued on July 18, 2020, and new business reopening guidances have been uploaded to the LA County COVID-19 Response Site under the Reopening Protocols category.  

The City recognizes that these businesses are faced with accommodating social distancing and limited services. During this public health emergency, indoor capacity is effectively reduced, and in some cases eliminated, within the current physical footprint of the business. To address this capacity issue, the City may issue Temporary Use Permits (TUPs) to utilize the privately-owned parking areas and outdoor spaces of a business’ site to appropriately provide services while accommodating emergency orders related to social distancing and indoor activities.  Restaurants interested in applying for a TUP may submit the Restaurant TUP Packet.  All other businesses may submit the Non-Restaurant TUP packet.  You may also contact for a packet or with any questions you may have.  Please note the $210 fee has been waived.  



The Economic Development program works with the business community to foster a positive atmosphere for businesses in Redondo Beach.  Department personnel are involved with various business associations within the City to keep informed of each area's needs.  The department endeavors to retain and attract businesses that will offer quality employment to local residents and to ensure the continued success of the City's core commercial areas.
