The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) released new guidance for the reopening of additional sectors of economies on Friday, June 5, 2020.

The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) released new guidance for the reopening of additional sectors of economies in jurisdictions like Orange County that have already submitted an attestation and received approval to move deeper into Stage 2 of the State’s Resilience Roadmap.

This newly issued guidance provides corresponding sectors with information on public health modifications they should implement prior to opening and state that they may only reopen upon approval by the County Health Officer. Upon review of local data related to COVID-19 spread and Orange County’s readiness, the County Health Officer will make a final decision about the timing for re-opening a sector, which may happen no sooner than June 12, 2020.

These sectors include:

Campgrounds, RV Parks, and Outdoor Recreation

Cardrooms, Satellite Wagering Facilities, and Racetracks 

Family Entertainment Centers 

Fitness Facilities

Hotels

Museums, Galleries, Zoos, and Aquariums 

Restaurants, Bars, and Wineries 


The County Health Officer will review Orange County’s epidemiological data including cases per 100,000 population, rate of test positivity, and local preparedness to support a health care surge, vulnerable populations, and contact tracing, and give sector-by-sector approval for these industries to re-open as appropriate. The County looks forward to sharing approvals with the community via press releases.
