As we move into new phases of re-opening, we want everyone to stay safe. The governor’s new guidelines, include customers wearing masks when they aren’t eating, expanded outdoor seating and customers waiting in their cars for a table.
Newsom, emphasized that stricter county shelter-in-place rules take precedence over his order. Counties that meet his guidelines will be allowed to reopen dine-in restaurants, but not bars, pubs, breweries or wineries that don’t serve food. Restaurants intending to reopen must write a plan to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and train employees in its implementation, follow intensive protocols for cleaning and disinfecting high-traffic areas, and make sure all customers and employees can stay six feet away from one another- among other rules.
