On May 8th, Governor Gavin Newsom moved California into Stage 2 of 4 of the Resilience Roadmap with emphasis on Retail (curbside pickup), Manufacturing, and Logistics. As the State moves further into reopening, progress on achieving several key Public Health Metrics must be met including these 6 Indicators for Modifying the Stay-At-Home Order.
Since the Stay-At-Home Order went into effect on March 19th, Californians have been practicing efforts to reduce the strain on hospitals in order to reopen California. With the May 8th early Stage 2 progression, California issued guidelines to help these workplaces reopen safely. Before reopening, all facilities must:
- Perform a detailed risk assessment and implement a site-specific protection plan
- Train employees on how to limit the spread of COVID-19, including how to screen themselves for symptomsand stay home if they have them
- Implement individual control measures and screenings
- Implement disinfecting protocols
- Implement physical distancing guidelines
Be prepared for your business' reopening stage by reviewing the guidance that is relevant to your business, preparing a plan based on the guidance for your industry, and then putting it into action.

Additionally, the State is asking for businesses to provide input on future industry guidance by filling out the California Recovery Roadmap survey.
