LA VISTA, Neb. (KMTV) — Different counties have different orders when it comes to businesses in the beauty field staying open amid the Coronavirus.

In Douglas County, nail salons, hair salons and tattoo parlors have been ordered to close until at least April 30 by the Douglas County Health Department.

Those who do not comply with the new order may receive a compliance check from the Omaha Police Department and may possibly receive a citation.

"We have responded to numerous complaints. We have conducted proactive compliance checks numbering in the hundreds at this point," Omaha Police Chief Schmaderer said.

The newest order from Sarpy Cass Health Department is that businesses in the beauty field can stay open as long as there are ten people or less in the establishment. According to the Sarpy County Sheriff's Office, they have not had to do any compliance checks as of Friday.

Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds has extended her order for the entire state of Iowa for these businesses to remain closed until at least April 7.
