Update regarding Coronavirus ( COVID-19) & Stay-At-Home Order
July 13, 2020

New state orders and how they impact Santa Clara County businesses
Hello Morgan Hill Community,

Today, the Governor took bold statewide action to respond to the rapid and troubling growth of COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations across California. Reducing transmission statewide is critical to controlling the pandemic. 

According to the State’s website, covid19.ca.gov :
Effective immediately, California closes some indoor business operations statewide and additional indoor operations in counties on Monitoring List for 3 consecutive days. Statewide indoor closures include restaurants, bars and breweries, wineries & tasting rooms, movie theaters, family entertainment centers, zoos and museums, and cardrooms. County indoor closures include fitness centers, places of worship, indoor protests, offices for non-critical infrastructure sectors, personal care services, hair salons and barbershops, and malls. County closures apply to counties that have been on the County Monitoring List for 3 consecutive days.

The County of Santa Clara was added to the State’s monitoring list on Sunday July 12, 2020. In light of the Governor’s announcement, the County sought clarification on the effect of today’s announcement in our County.  The State confirmed this afternoon that it will require sectors closed for indoor operations to close in Santa Clara County effective Wednesday, July 15, 2020 at 12:01 a.m.  We wanted to share this information with businesses and residents as soon as possible. The chart below provides information on the industries being closed statewide and in our County, as well as the effective date of the closure:
All businesses in the community must follow this directive from the State. All businesses, including those operating solely outdoors, must also continue to follow the requirements of the local order, including by creating and posting a Social Distancing Protocol. We will provide additional information to the community as soon as it becomes available. 
 
“The fight against COVID-19 is unfortunately far from over, but our residents and businesses have shown how we can collectively make an extraordinary difference in saving lives and safeguarding our community,” said County of Santa Clara Health Officer Dr. Sara Cody. “We strongly urge everyone to rigorously and consistently follow the State and local health orders.”
