Summary of State Guidance Release for Roadmap of Businesses Reopening

Today, May 7, 2020 the State of California released guidance on the Roadmap for Businesses Reopening.


All detailed information from the State of California can be found HERE


Before re-opening, all facilities must first perform a detailed risk assessment and implement a site-specific protection plan. You can find industry specific protection plans HERE


Adaptations need to be made before Stage 2 workplaces can open – currently that includes modifications like curbside pickup at retail locations. 


On May 8, 2020 Tuolumne County businesses who qualify as Early Stage 2 businesses can utilize State Guidance to reopen. Late Stage 2 businesses or business modifications will not be allowed until further notice, as Tuolumne County Public Health is working to complete documentation to the state requesting a variance to the state modifications. Public Health will be finalizing planning documents and plan to submit attestation documents as soon as possible.


Lower Risk Workplaces can open with modifications

  • Curbside retail, including but not limited to: Bookstores, jewelry stores, toy stores, clothing stores, shoe stores, home and furnishing stores, sporting goods stores, antique stores, music stores, florists. Note: this will be phased-in, starting first with curbside pickup and delivery only until further notice.

  • Supply chains supporting the above businesses, in manufacturing and logistical sectors


Lower Risk Workplaces can open later in Stage 2:

  • Destination retail, including shopping malls and swap meets.

  • Personal services, limited to: car washes, pet grooming, tanning facilities, and landscape gardening.

  • Office-based businesses (telework remains strongly encouraged)

  • Dine-in restaurants (other facility amenities, like bars or gaming areas, are not permitted)

  • Schools and childcare facilities

  • Outdoor museums and open gallery spaces


NOT in Stage 1 or 2: Higher-risk Workplaces


  • Personal services such as nail salons, tattoo parlors, gyms and fitness studios

  • Hospitality services, such as bars and lounges

  • Entertainment venues, such as movie theaters, gaming facilities, and pro sports

  • Indoor museums, kids museums and gallery spaces, zoos, and libraries

  • Community centers, including public pools, playgrounds, and picnic areas

  • Religious services and cultural ceremonies

  • Nightclubs
