Are you ready to reopen? The pandemic has affected industries differently, creating a variance in how to reopen businesses. The State of California's Resilience Roadmap shows what stage we are in for allowing businesses to operate.
- We suggest starting with the State of California's Safe Economy website for guidelines based on your county and business type
- If you are an employer, also see the COVID-19 Employer Playbook for a Safe Reopening by the California Department of Public Health.
- If you have any questions about reopening, check with your city or county, as guidelines are continually changing.
