California's most populous county is permitting businesses and houses of worship to open their doors, saying it's met state requirements for flattening the coronavirus curve.

Los Angeles County is permitting in-person shopping and prayer services beginning Wednesday.

Other counties already have done so.

Meanwhile, California is moving even farther with easing March stay-at-home restrictions that aimed to reduce the spread of COVID-19 but also damaged the economy.

Gov. Gavin Newsom on Tuesday announced that counties now have the option of allowing barbershops and hair salons to accept business but they must follow social distancing and safety guidelines.
