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

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.
