This week Governor Newsom laid out a four-stage plan to slowly reopen
California's businesses, schools and childcare facilities from the coronavirus shutdown. The State plans to reopen those sectors in four stages.
Safety and Preparedness
This is where the state is now.
Staying home and flattening the curve. Building out our testing, PPE, and hospital capacity. Making our essential workplaces as safe as possible and preparing sector-by-sector guidelines for a safe re-opening.
Lower Risk Workplaces
Gradually re-opening some lower risk workplaces with adaptations. This will include: retail (e.g. curbside pickup), manufacturing, offices (when telework not possible), and more public spaces.
Stage 3 Higher Risk Workplaces
Gradually re-opening some higher risk environments with adaptations and limits on size of gatherings. This will include: personal care (hair salons, nail salons, gyms), movie theaters, sports without live audiences, and in-person religious services.
State 4: End of Stay-At-Home Order
Re-opening the highest risk parts of our economy -- once therapeutics have been developed. This will include mass gatherings such as: concerts, convention centers, live audience sports.
