Today, January 25, 2021, Governor Newsom announced that the Regional Stay at Home Order that was implemented in early December 2020 has been lifted as the projected ICU availability over four weeks in all regions rose to over 15%.
California will now revert to the tiered system under the Blueprint for a Safer Economy. As a reminder, this tiered system permits the gradual reopening of certain businesses and activities. Counties will once again be assigned tiers (Purple, Red, or Orange) based on each county’s specific case and test positivity rate that will determine which business can and cannot reopen. The lifting of the Regional Stay at Home Order is a significant change as this order caused many businesses to completely cease operations. Now, businesses may be allowed to resume operations, depending on what tier your county falls into. Now, as more businesses begin to reopen it is crucial for business owners to understand the state and specifically their county’s specific requirements.
