May 22, 2020 - Preparing to Reopen - Retail and Restaurants
On May 19, Yolo County submitted a written attestation plan to the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) to pursue a variance to move further into Stage 2 of the Governor’s resilience roadmap. The attestation certifies that the County has met the readiness criteria outlined by the State and that the County is able to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. On May 20, the County received plan approval, allowing the Yolo County Public Health Officer and Board of Supervisors to consider expanded Stage 2 business reopening including destination retail (retail stores) and dine-in restaurants, as now permitted by the State. The County Board of Supervisors will consider these modifications to the County’s Shelter In Place order at their next meeting on Tuesday, May 26.
Restaurants and Non-Essential Retailers in Yolo County are not yet permitted to re-open for dine-in/in-store service, as noted above. However, local restaurants, eating establishments and retailers are encouraged to begin preparing for future re-opening by reviewing the guidance issued by the State for Dine-In Restaurants located here: https://covid19.ca.gov/roadmap-counties/ and for Retailers located here: https://covid19.ca.gov/pdf/guidance-retail.pdf. It is recommended businesses also review the Yolo County Face Covering order: https://www.yolocounty.org/home/showdocument?id=64160.
