San Mateo County moved to less-restrictive red tier effective immediately
San Mateo County – effective immediately – moves to the second stage (red) of the state’s four-tiered, color-coded reopening system.
Still, the county’s new risk level is considered “substantial” under the state’s monitoring system and officials caution that businesses and individuals must continue to follow health and safety guidelines. San Mateo County’s health order requiring face coverings, social distancing, and limited gatherings remains in effect.
“What this means is that you – the residents of San Mateo County – have made huge sacrifices to help slow the spread of COVID-19,” County Manager Mike Callagy said. “We have precious few moments to celebrate in these unprecedented times. But this is something we should all be happy about now that so many of our businesses can reopen and so many of you can get back to work.”
“This is great news for so many small business owners who have worked so hard to keep their businesses going," said Warren Slocum, President of the San Mateo County Board of Supervisors.
“What each and every one of us can do is to commit to patronizing our local businesses," Slocum said. "Let’s be safe, be healthy and help ensure our small businesses are with us today and tomorrow and the future.”
Moving to Tier 2 (Red) allows:
  • Restaurants indoors (max 25% capacity or 100 people, whichever is fewer);
  • All retail indoors (max 50% capacity);
  • Shopping centers, swap meets indoors (max 50% capacity, closed common areas);
  • Personal care services – hair and nail salons, barbershops (open with modifications);
  • Museums, zoos and aquariums (max 25% capacity);
  • Places of worship (max 25% capacity or 100 people, whichever is fewer);
  • Movie theaters in doors (max 25% capacity or 100 people, whichever is fewer);
  • Gyms and fitness centers indoors (max 10% capacity);
  • And more
Businesses can find guidelines that apply to their industry on the state’s COVID-19 website.
Businesses allowed to reopen or expand operations must follow industry-specific guidelines for health and safety, face covering requirements and social distancing.
Under the tier system, bars, breweries and distilleries where no meals are served remain closed.
