New Public Health Order Changes Rules for Some Businesses
Dear Business Owner, Manager, Representative:
We want you to be aware of several changes to the Santa Clara County Public Health Order that might affect your business.
The new Public Health Order goes into effect May 4. It replaces the previous order, and will extend through May 31. The changes include:
- Construction is now allowed to proceed, as long as projects comply with new safety protocols.
- Several types of “outdoor businesses,” such as landscaping and plant nurseries, may also resume operations with enhanced safety protocols.
- Childcare establishments, summer camps, schools, and other educational and recreational programs can operate under limited circumstances to serve essential workers.
- In their Social Distancing Protocols, essential businesses must now ensure that personnel and customers wear face coverings when entering their facilities (except those customers for whom face coverings are not recommended, like very young children).
For more information, review the following documents:
With best wishes for your health and the success of your business,
