Orange County has received State approval on its variance application to move into “Stage 2B.”
According to the County, the following businesses may re-open with the proper safety precaution adaptations:
- In-person dining reservations
- Retail shopping with social distancing and curbside pickup
- Offices (when telework not possible)
- Outdoor Museums
- Limited Services
It is important to note that these industries must adhere to the guidance put out by the State, which can be found here: https://covid19.ca.gov/roadmap-counties/ and here: https://covid19.ca.gov/industry-guidance/. Adherence to this guidance will ensure that our community stays safe and these industries can remain open.
The linked attached press release from the County gives more information about the approval from the State, specific links to industry health and safety guidance, and other information critical for the re-opening of these industries.
Also attached to this email is a new County Health Order that gives new guidance on individuals with or exposed to COVID-19, a requirement for cloth face coverings, as well as information for businesses as they re-open.
We will continue to share real time information related to the re-opening stages and guidelines as more news becomes available.
