Additional Business Restrictions Implemented by State

News Flash_Additional Business Restrictions

As of July 13, the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) has ordered new restrictions on bars, restaurants, and other indoor business operations statewide to slow the recent rapid spread of COVID-19 across California. The State has also implemented additional restrictions for certain business activities in counties that have remained on the state’s County Monitoring List for three or more consecutive days -- this list includes Sonoma County. These restrictions will remain in place in Sonoma County until the state takes further action.

As a result of these new state restrictions, the following business types are not allowed or must switch to offering only outdoor services in Sonoma County:

  • Restaurants
  • Wineries/tasting rooms
  • Bars, clubs, breweries, brewpubs and distilleries
  • Movie theaters
  • Family entertainment centers (for example: bowling alleys and arcades)
  • Zoos and museums
  • Card rooms
  • 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

The state order permits affected businesses to offer limited outside services, including:

  • Outdoor dining and take-out service.
  • Wineries and tasting rooms may operate outdoors without being required to serve food.
  • Bars, clubs, breweries, brewpubs, and distilleries may serve alcohol outdoors, but only in the same transaction as a meal.
  • Malls may offer curbside pick-up.

All other businesses, industries, and activities may continue to operate with infectious control measures in place.
