May 27, 2020 - Roadmap to Recovery and Reopening Woodland
This week Yolo County announced that they will begin allowing additional activities to resume operations to include non-essential offices, non-essential retail in-store shopping, dine-in restaurants, hair salons and barbershops, and places of worship. Yolo County’s attestation was recently approved on May 20 by the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) which allows the County to move further into Stage 2. A reminder that face coverings are still mandatory in Yolo County for the public and businesses, as it is a separate health order in effect until further notice.
Though some activities were approved last week by the State of California, Yolo County delayed reopening to ensure that the proper guidance and guidelines were in place and businesses had time to prepare. The following activities are allowed to resume on the specified dates below as long as they
1) Follow State and/or County guidelines,
2) Adhere to the County’s face covering order;
3) Comply with strict social distancing protocols:
Effective May 27:

“During the last nine weeks Woodland residents have been doing their part by sheltering in place. Woodland is ready to recover and is now preparing for the reopening of many businesses and our places of worship. But we must do so in a safe and strategic manner. We will follow guidelines meant to help get our economy back on its feet and get Woodlanders back to work. We have one goal going forward: protect employees, customers and the public. We are depending on the community to continue their tremendous efforts on slowing down this disease as we move into this next phase”. Rich Lansburgh, City of Woodland Mayor.
