Yolo County Reviews Additional Activities Released by the State; Businesses Must Wait for County ‘Green Light’

(Woodland, CA) –The State of California announced in a press release today additional activities and businesses that would be able to resume, either statewide or in variance-approved counties, as early as June 12th. Per the new Yolo County Health Order issued May 28, 2020, businesses and activities must wait for the County’s Public Health Officer to ‘green light’ activities before they can resume. The County is proceeding through the re-openings with a thoughtful and methodical approach to help maintain low cases of Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) and ensure continued attestation approval by the State while keeping public health and safety a top priority.

Yolo County will be assessing these activities and their supporting state guidance, in collaboration with city partners, and will be providing local updates and releases in the next week in accordance with the State’s June 12th date. For local businesses to reopen, the following must happen first: 

  1. State releases the activity on its statewide industry or county variance page with state guidance.
  2. Yolo County Public Health Officer authorizes newly released state activities to resume in Yolo County.
  3. Businesses are directed to which guidance to follow on the County’s Roadmap page.
  4. Businesses follow the instructions listed in the guidance.

The State’s announcement allows the following activities to resume as early as June 12th:

Statewide Release:

  • Schools
  • Day camps
  • Music, film and TV production
  • Professional sports (without live audience)

Variance Counties Only:

  • Family entertainment centers
  • Restaurants, bars, and wineries
  • Zoos, museums, galleries and aquariums
  • Gyms and fitness facilities
  • Hotels (for tourism and individual travel)
