California Blueprint for a Safer Economy Announced

Friday, August 28, Governor Newsom unveiled the Blueprint for a Safer Economy, a statewide, stringent and slow plan for living with COVID-19 for the long haul.

The plan imposes risk-based criteria on tightening and loosening COVID-19 allowable activities and expands the length of time between changes to assess how any movement affects the trajectory of the disease. Like every aspect of California's response, data and science are the North Star, and as a result, this new framework makes a number of changes to the state's previous resilience roadmap.

Small businesses should review the Blueprint to plan safe operations.
