Unlike some states which have moved to reopen their economies seemingly on a whim, Governor Newsome has, from the beginning, stressed a sensible data-based approach to reopening the state, dependent on six essential metrics.
Essential Metrics For Reopening California
- Stability of Hospitalizations
- Personal Protective Equipment Inventory
- Health Care Surge Capacity
- Testing Capacity
- Contact Tracing Capability
- Public Health Guidance in Place
With the Governor’s report card indicating California is on track for all six, Newsome is moving California to stage two of the reopening process. This means a number of new classes of businesses will be allowed to open as early as today (5/8) if they comply with the modified guidelines designed to lower transmission of the virus. All businesses must be curb side pick up only and businesses must complete a Social Distancing Protocol questionnaire demonstrating their compliance.
California Businesses That Can Reopen with Modifications
- Jewelry stores
- Toy stores
- Clothing stores
- Shoe stores
- Home and furnishing stores
- Sporting goods stores
- Antique stores
- Music stores
