In-person dining at restaurants and in-store retail shopping are now permitted, with businesses enacting social distancing measures and following various restrictions to prevent the spread of coronavirus.
All businesses reopening need to complete the County's Safe Reopening Plan, print and post it at their entrance. Businesses should also review and refer to the state checklist for their specific industry, such as the Retailer guidance and checklist, when completing the County's Safe Reopening Plan.
The City of Oceanside is working on allowing modifications to temporarily allow restaurants the use of sections of parking lots or public rights-of-way to increase social distancing. There will be an expedited review process in place soon.
Face coverings and physical distancing will still berequiredwhen entering these businesses.
Shop and dine local to help Oceanside businesses quickly recover!
STAGE 3 'PILOT PROGRAM' PROPOSAL
San Diego County submitted a pilot program proposal to the State that would allow a select number of businesses from Stage 3 to gradually reopen ahead of the schedule outlined by the state. The pilot program includes outdoor religious services, research labs, hair and nail salons, fitness facilities, youth sports and clubs and pools at HOAs/apartment complexes with reduced capacity. The pilot program would also allow therapeutic and peer support groups to offer sessions, but with group size limited to 12 people or fewer. The California Department of Public Health and the Governor’s Office will have to approve the County’s pilot program proposals before businesses from these sectors can begin to reopen. Businesses can prepare for reopening by viewing industry guidance on the State's website here.
PLEASE CONTINUE PRECAUTIONS
With many businesses reopening, and things beginning to look "normal" again, it's important to not become complacent. Physical distancing, good hand hygiene, and face coverings when required will minimize the risk of spreading COVID-19 in our community. Precautions
HEADING TO THE BEACH? Don't Get Stung
Oceanside Lifeguards report that stingrays have returned to the shallow water. If you're heading into the sea, remember to shuffle and stomp your feet to avoid a sting.
Do the "Stingray Shuffle."
Reminder: Per SD County Health Order, all beach parking lots are closed to minimize crowds and gathering. Beaches are open for active recreation only; no sunbathing or picnicking yet. Rules
HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND!
