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:
- 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
- Offices for non-essential sectors
- Personal care services, like nail salons, body waxing and tattoo parlors
- Hair salons and barbershops
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.
