Yolo County Continues to Move Through Phase II of the Roadmap to Recover - Reopening of Services

Effective May 28, 2020 the Yolo County Shelter In Place order will expire.

However, all residents are still under, and need to comply with, the State’s Stay At Home orders. 

Yolo County is issuing a new health order effective May 28, 2020 (in effect until further notice) that is NOT a Shelter In Place but: 1) Maintains the face covering health order; 2) Emphasizes the importance of personal responsibility; 3) Continues personal health and safety guidance, such as social distancing and hygiene; and 4) Provides additional directives and guidance. For more information, click on the tab below titled "All Health Orders & Amendments" or click here for the press release.

Yolo County’s Attestation Plan was approved on May 20, 2020, however businesses are prohibited from reopening that have not been approved by the State and the local Health Officer. To see if your activity or industry has been approved, see the "Now Open in Yolo" columns below.

Yolo County will be aligning with the State order and its Four Stages to Resilience Roadmap. Yolo County is charting a path forward through COVID-19 that is fluid and gradual, continues to protect public health, and allows the County and cities to begin reopening various businesses and organizations. While the State Order is in effect, counties may only permit activities to resume that are not prohibited by the State Order.

As of May 27, 2020, Yolo County has authorized the following activities to resume:

  • Retail
  • Non-essential office
  • Dine-In restaurants
  • Hair salons
  • Places of worship 

Yolo County continues to require face covering due to the local Health Order in place. View the Health Order here.

Please note, in order for the above referenced activities to reopen they must:

  1. Follow State and/or County guidelines,
  2. Adhere to the County’s face covering order; and
  3. Comply with strict social distancing protocols.

Yolo County has created a "Business Office Toolkit" which provides guidance, signage, and templates to ensure business success and compliance. Please click the following link to view this Toolkit: 


The City of Woodland, under the direction of Yolo County, will be progressively aligning with the State order and the Four Stages to Resilience Roadmap.

Additional activities and businesses are reopening! All businesses and industries must:
1. Follow the social distancing protocol (completed and posted at entry or prominent location)
2. Adhere to any hyperlinks below or specific State guidance and checklist (scroll down the State page to select your industry).

The State-wide Stay-at-Home Order Remains in Effect. 

Residents are encouraged to stay at home as much as possible and practice physical distancing measures when in public. Governor Newsom recognizes the positive results of our current efforts. To maintain public health, any consideration of modifying the stay-at-home order must be done using a gradual, science-based and data-driven framework. California’s six indicators for modifying the stay-at-home order are:

  • The ability to monitor and protect our communities through testing, contact tracing, isolating, and supporting those who are positive or exposed;
  • The ability to prevent infection in people who are at risk for more severe COVID-19;
  • The ability of the hospital and health systems to handle surges;
  • The ability to develop therapeutics to meet the demand;
  • The ability for businesses, schools, and child care facilities to support physical distancing; and
  • The ability to determine when to reinstitute certain measures, such as the stay-at-home orders, if necessary.

A supporting tactic in the County’s ‘Roadmap to Recovery’ is a new heath order requiring members of the public and workers to wear a face covering. The purpose of this order is to provide additional public health protection in settings that present a risk of COVID-19 transmission. Face coverings must be worn in public settings, such as:

  • Waiting in line to go inside a store
  • Shopping at a store
  • Picking up food at a restaurant
  • On public transportation (or waiting for it)
  • In a taxi or rideshare vehicle
  • Seeking healthcare
  • Going into facilities allowed to stay open
  • Working an essential job that interacts with the public
  • Children 2 years and older should be encouraged to wear a mask when around others closer than 6 feet. When they do, they must be supervised by an adult.

Can the COVID-19 virus spread through drinking water?

The virus that causes COVID-19 has not been detected in drinking water. Conventional water treatment methods that use filtration and disinfection, such as those in most municipal drinking water systems, should remove or inactivate the virus that causes COVID-19.
