City of Woodland - COVID-19
Yolo County Moves to Red Tier
February 23, the State of California announced that Yolo County would move into the Substantial, or red, tier in the State’s Blueprint for a Safer Economy (Blueprint) after meeting the red tier’s metrics for two consecutive weeks. As a result, many local businesses and activities will either be allowed to expand capacity or resume operations. Effective Wednesday, February 24, the following restrictions will apply while Yolo County is in the red tier:
- Fitness centers and gyms: open indoors with 10% max occupancy
- Gatherings: Indoor gatherings strongly discouraged but allowed with modifications; no more than 16 people from no more than 3 households
- Hotels and lodging: fitness centers can now open indoors with 10% max occupancy
- Movie theatres and family entertainment centers: open indoors with 25% max occupancy or 100 people, whichever is fewer
- Museums, zoos, and aquariums: open indoors with 25% max occupancy
- Personal care services (including tattoo parlors, piercing shops, electrolysis and body waxing): open indoors with modifications
- Places of worship: open indoors with 25% max occupancy or 100 people, whichever is fewer
- Retail (including standalone grocers): open indoors with 50% max occupancy
- Restaurants open indoors with 25% max occupancy or 100 people, whichever is fewer; only members of same household may share a table
- K-12 Schools: May reopen after the County has been in the red tier for 5 consecutive days and must follow the State’s Reopening Framework
- Shopping centers (including swap meets and indoor malls): open indoors with 50% max occupancy
- Youth sports: competitions between two teams are allowed for outdoor low- and moderate-contact sports according to the State's Youth Sports Guidance
The max occupancy percentage is based on the California Building and Fire Code that is displayed in every business and determines the maximum number of people, including staff and the public, permitted in a room at a time and able to escape safely in case of a fire.
The following industries were allowed to open indoors in the purple tier and may continue to stay open in the red tier: critical infrastructure, limited services, hair salons, barbershops and personal care services.
The following industries are only allowed to open outdoors with modifications, not indoors, while in the red tier: family entertainment centers, wineries, cardrooms, satellite wagering and professional sports with no live audiences.
The following industries must continue to stay closed in the red tier: bars and breweries where no meal is provided, live audience sports and amusement parks.

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.
