  • More Businesses Allowed to Open

    Today the CDPH released guidelines for counties to follow to reopen a broad range of businesses that have been closed since mid-March because of concerns about spreading the coronavirus. The rules on schools and day camps will apply statewide. But only counties that have met certain thresholds on the number of cases, testing and preparedness will be allowed to start reopening the other sectors. Businesses and activities eligible for reopening include:

    • Schools and school-based programs

    • Day camps • Hotels, lodging and short-term rentals (for tourism and individual travel)

    • Campgrounds, RV parks, and outdoor recreation

    • Professional sports without live audiences

    • Music, film and television production

    • Gyms and fitness centers, including pools

    • Zoos, museums, galleries and aquariums

    • Bars and wineries

    Businesses in these sectors should carefully read the guidance issued by the state website and develop corresponding safety plans.

    Once those safety plans are completed, eligible businesses may reopen on or after June 12 without further approval
