Dear Woodland Business Community,
Please find the information below shared by Yolo County this afternoon. PLEASE NOTE:
The information provided below and within the guidance documents linked below is to help local businesses prepare for anticipated
changes to the current State and Local Shelter-In-Place orders. The guidelines referenced below may change based on the official guidance provided by Governor Newsom tomorrow (Thursday 7 May)
Final guidelines will be available on the County’s Roadmap to Recovery Website www.yolocounty.org/coronavirus-roadmap
after the Governor’s update.
Earlier this week Governor Gavin Newsom announced the State’s intent to begin allowing certain businesses to reopen in a limited capacity beginning Friday, May 8th under Phase Two of the State’s four-phase reopening plan. The businesses permitted to resume operations may include all manufacturing operations and curbside pick-up and delivery for certain retail establishments.
Yolo County will be amending the local Shelter-in-Place order to align with the upcoming modifications to the State’s Stay-at-Home order. This will permit certain businesses to resume operations in a modified format on May 8th, as long as businesses 1) follow established guidelines from the County and 2) adhere to social distancing protocols. In order to help our local businesses prepare, the County has drafted the below preliminary guidelines for both manufacturing industries and curbside pick-up and delivery for retail establishments.Access below the two guidelines issued by Yolo County on 6 May 2020:
- Yolo County Manufacturing Guideline
- Yolo County Curbside Retail Guideline
The State is expected to issuing a revised State order tomorrow
, along with the formal requirements for newly released businesses, which may impact the County’s guidance and timing.
The County wants to give businesses as much time as possible to prepare for the upcoming modifications and that is why we are releasing the draft documents to you now. Final County guidelines will be released following the Governor’s modifications and will incorporate any additional requirements announced by the State that businesses are expected to follow. Once available, this finalized guidance will be accessible on County website by clicking on the hyperlinked business activity at www.yolocounty.org/coronavirus-roadmap
The County’s Shelter-in-Place order is still in effect through May 31st. Yolo County continues to monitor developments related to the State Order as well as local data. Additional amendments to loosen or tighten activities under the County’s Shelter-in-Place order will be based on developments related to these two areas.
