This morning, Governor Newsom removed the Stay-at-Home Order that had been issued on December 3, 2020.  COVID-19 remains a threat to our public health and San Diego County has moved back into the Purple Tier, the States most restrictive tier.  

This means that restaurants can once again service customers but only for outdoor dining and for take-out.  Indoor dining is not allowed. Barber shops and beauty salons may operate using the safe guidelines that were established when San Diego County was previously in the Purple Tier.  Visit the State of California website for information specific to each business type to better understand how a business can operate within the Purple Tier.  

Cease and Desist Orders that have been issued to businesses found by the County to be in violation of the Public Health Order, will not be rescinded based on today’s announcement.  Those businesses will continue to be monitored by the County Safe Compliance Reopening Team and will be allowed to operate to the extent allowable within the Purple Tier.  Additional information is available on San Diego County’s COVID-19 website on the Safe Reopening page.  

Public Health Officials continue to stress the importance of remaining vigilant in our efforts to protect ourselves and others by wearing masks, practice social distancing when in public, and stay at home except for when necessary to purchase essential goods, or for exercise.  

Vaccine locations can be found within the county and currently anyone in Phase 1A or 1B on the vaccine schedule are encouraged to make an appointment now.  Find locations and schedule an appointment at the County’s website found here.
