Sacramento County Public Health Order Amended, Additional Sectors to Close Indoor Operations

California Governor Gavin Newsom announced July 13 that the California Department of Public Health requires all counties that have been on the COVID-19 Monitoring List for at least three consecutive days to move additional sectors to close indoor operations. Sacramento is one of the 29 counties on list, and the County has amended its Public Health Order to reflect the requirement. The Order is now in effect.

Sectors impacted by the July 13 amendment and must close indoor operations are:

  • Fitness centers
  • Worship services
  • Protests
  • Offices for non-essential sectors
  • Personal care services, like nail salons, body waxing and tattoo parlors
  • Hair salons and barbershops
  • Malls

On July 1 the following sectors were ordered to close indoor operations:

  • Restaurants
  • Wineries and Tasting Rooms
  • Movie Theaters
  • Family Entertainment Centers (such as batting cages and bowling alleys)
  • Museums and Zoos
  • Cardrooms

Additionally, the County Public Health Department ordered all bars, brewpubs, breweries, wineries, tasting rooms and pubs to close indoor operations. Bars, pubs, brewpubs and breweries may operate outdoors if they are offering sit-down, outdoor meals. Bars, pubs, brewpubs, and breweries that do not provide sit-down meals themselves, but can contract with another vendor to do so, can serve dine-in meals when operating outdoors provided both businesses follow the dine-in restaurant guidance and alcohol is sold only in the same transaction as a meal.

Restaurants in Sacramento County may continue with outdoor seating and takeout and delivery services. Outdoor operations may be conducted under a tent, canopy or other sun shelter.

Both local and state health orders still prohibit gatherings of any size with people who are not part of your immediate household.
