California Statewide Industry Guidance to Reduce Risk

If you are ready to get your company back on track and creating revenue again, below are statewide guidance documents for you to follow to do just that, (that is if their local county restrictions allow).

Find your industry guidance for counties on our County Public Health links. The goal is a safer environment for workers and customers. Businesses may use effective alternative or innovative methods to build upon the guidelines.

Review the guidance that is relevant to your workplace, prepare a plan based on the guidance for your industry, and put it into action. When complete, you can post the industry-specific checklist (below) in your workplace to show your customers and your employees that you’ve reduced the risk and are open for business.

As California moves into stage 2 of our COVID-19 recovery, every business should take the following steps to reduce the risk of COVID-19: As part of 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 symptoms and stay home if they have them
  • Implement individual control measures and screenings
  • Implement disinfecting protocols
  • Implement physical distancing guidelines

It is critical that employees needing to self-isolate because of COVID-19 are encouraged to stay at home, with sick leave policies to support that, to prevent further infection in your workplace. See additional information on government programs supporting sick leave and worker’s compensation for COVID-19.

Guidance for counties with attestations

The following industries may open only in counties approved to move further in the Resilience Roadmap. These guidance should be implemented only with county health officer approval following their review of local epidemiological data including cases per 100,000 population, rate of test positivity, and local preparedness to support a health care surge, vulnerable populations, contact tracing and testing.

Counties that have remained on the County Monitoring List for 3 consecutive days will be required to shut down some industries unless they can be modified to operate outside or by pick-up. Bars must close all operations even if they are operating outdoors. The closures will apply for a minimum of three weeks and are subject to an extension based on epidemiologic indicators. See the list of counties.
