ORANGE COUNTY, Calif. – The Orange County Board of Supervisors unanimously voted 5-0 Tuesday afternoon to reopen businesses with guidelines to ensure the safety of the public.
Orange County Business Guidelines:
The Board of Supervisors urges all members of the public and businesses in Orange County to comply with the following guidelines:
1. Scope. These guidelines do not supersede any conflicting or more restrictive orders issued by local governments, the State of California, or the Federal Government. These guidelines apply equally to businesses, houses of worship, entertainment and sports venues (including youth sports), and education providers, both public and private, and other organizations.
2. Sick, elderly, and vulnerable persons. Anyone who feels sick should remain at home. In addition, high-risk persons who are over 65 years of age, or suffering chronic illnesses, should continue to follow recommendations to stay at home and limit public interaction but should wear a face-covering out for medical and dental appointments, as needed.
3. Physical Distancing in the Workplace. Physical distancing of a minimum of six feet should be maintained between customer-facing employees and the general public, and – to the extent practical – between employee workstations. Where six feet of physical distancing between workstations is impractical, face coverings should be worn. Businesses are encouraged to allow telecommuting by employees when practical.
