Reversal of California Reopening

Based on a couple of calls following Governor Newsom’s briefing from our government affairs specialists, there seems to be some confusion as to the current statewide restrictions to slow the spread of COVID-19. Based on the increases in COVID-19 cases, Governor Newsom ordered a reversal of the reopening of certain businesses and activities effective Monday, July 13.

Updated restrictions are as follows.

Statewide indoor operations closures:

  • Dine-In Restaurants
  • Wineries and Tasting Rooms
  • Movie Theatres
  • Family Entertainment Centers
  • Zoos and Museums
  • Cardrooms
  • Bars must close all operations

Counties on the county monitoring list (see below) must close theese indoor services:

  • Fitness Centers
  • Places of Worship
  • Offices for non-critical sectors
  • Personal Care Services
  • Hair Salons and Barbershops
  • Malls

These sectors represent customers to many of our printers. However, printers are considered essential businesses that are not subject to closure under Governor Newsom’s announcement. We are unsure whether this is the last rollback or whether there is more to come. All that we can recommend is that each business should be prepared should further rollbacks be announced.

Members have access to a credential template that was created several months ago to identify workers as essential critical infrastructure workers (e.g., employees of essential businesses). Should further rollbacks be implemented, employees may need to have a document of this type with them.
