Before businesses reopen, they must fill out a Safe Reopening Plan (SafeReopeningPlanTemplate.pdf), share it with their employees and display it where customers and patrons can see it.
They must also make sure employees and customers get a temperature or symptom screening, use face coverings when not eating or drinking, maintain physical distancing and practice good hand hygiene.
Over the weekend, day camps, campgrounds, RV parks, and outdoor recreation such as sports fishing and charter boats could begin reopening. Tomorrow, coastal cities can reopen parking lots at beaches.
“As we reopen more businesses, we must continue to be vigilant and take preventive measures,” said Wilma Wooten, M.D., M.P.H., County public health officer. “Each of us is responsible and has a role to play to make sure cases do not increase.”
The following businesses must remain closed until further notice:
- Nail and facial salons
- Tattoo parlors
- Therapeutic massage businesses
