May 15, 2020 - Yolo County Allows Additional Activities to Reopen
Effective May 14th, Yolo County has amended the current Shelter-in-Place order to allow the re-opening of:
- childcare for non-essential workers,
- select services, and
- outdoor museums and open gallery spaces
Yolo County is delaying the reopening of non-essential office-based businesses until next week in order to develop more specific local guidance. This amendment aligns the County with some recent modifications to the State’s Stay-at-Home Order, which allows for all of these activities, including office-based businesses, to resume in a limited capacity under Phase 2 of the State’s four-phase reopening plan. The County’s Shelter-in-Place order is still in effect through May 31.
Yolo County is allowing the following activities to resume that have been assessed as low risk for the spread of COVID-19 and are consistent with the State Order, as long as they:
1) Follow State guidelines,
2) Adhere to the County’s face covering order; and
3) Comply with strict social distancing protocols.
Yolo County has prepared the following graphic to help communicate what businesses have been allowed to open and at what stage the State has indicated that certain business types will be allowed to re-open.
