The State of California has updated its Resilience Roadmap page to announce its progress to “early Stage 2” of the 4 stages of reopening.
Safety and preparedness
End of Stay Home Order
At the current stage, these establishments can open with modifications:
At Stage 2, people should limit the time they spend outside the home. Travel is restricted to permissible activities—e.g., health care, food, outdoor exercise and recreation (individuals and households only).
During Stage 1 and 2, work and local shopping or other activities related to open sectors, are allowed.
Critical indicators will be closely monitored, and the scope of reopening can be altered if needed to protect public health and safety.
To help workplaces reopen safely, the state has issued a statewide industry guidance to reduce the risk for COVID-19.
In general, all facilities are required to do the following before they reopen:
Employees who need to self-isolate because of COVID-19 should stay at home to prevent further infection in their workplace. Sick leave policies should support these employees who are unable to report for work.
Counties may move at different speeds through stage 2, following guidelines laid out on the county variance page. Some may maintain more restrictive public health measures according to their respective levels of risk.
To move past the initial parts of Stage 2, counties much be able to meet the following requirements:
To ensure compliance, you should also be aware of shelter-place-orders in both city and county levels.
Many counties and cities observe their own social distancing protocols for businesses that are open. If you are seeking to reopen your establishment, see to it that you are in full compliance with both state and local requirements.
After that, you can scale your own protocols and implement modified measures that factor in specific areas in your operation to maximize the safety of your employees, your customers, and your community.
