Updated Order Will Take Effect
July 13, 2020
Hello Morgan Hill Community,
The new County of Santa Clara Public Health Order, set to go into effect on Monday, July 13, has been approved by the State of California Department of Public Health. The new order eases restrictions on most businesses and activities, while requiring updated social distancing protocols to be implemented at businesses. The order explicitly states that social distancing and the use of face coverings in public are critical to combating COVID-19, which “continues... to pose a severe risk to residents of our County.” Nail salons, barbershops, and gyms are among the businesses permitted to reopen, as long as they have an approved and implemented social distancing plan, beginning July 13. For more information, visit the Santa Clara County COVID-19 website.
The Santa Clara County Public Health Officer will issue a set of mandatory directives with rules to reduce risk in industries and activities allowed to operate and resume under the County’s new Public Health Order, effective July 13. All businesses and people in the County must follow these directives, as well as the industry-specific guidance issued by the State. Below are links to the first round of sector specific mandatory directives released by the County today:
