Industry and Workplace Guidance

Napa County is currently under the Regional Stay Home Order issued by the State of California, which takes place when there is less than 15% capacity in Intensive Care Units in the region. More information can be found on the State of California's COVID-19 website.

California has a Blueprint for a Safer Economy for reducing COVID-19 in the state with revised criteria for loosening and tightening restrictions on activities. Every county in California is assigned to a tier based on its rate of new cases and positivity. At a minimum, counties must remain in a tier for at least 3 weeks before moving forward. Data is reviewed weekly and tiers are updated every Tuesday. To move forward, a county must meet the next tier’s criteria for two consecutive weeks. If a county’s metrics worsen for two consecutive weeks, it will be assigned a more restrictive tier.  

As this situation is evolving rapidly, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) and your local Chamber of Commerce may have the most up-to-date documents.

County Adopts Resolution No. 2020-135 to update COVID-19 temporary measures for health and safety business operations. To submit, Please upload completed Notice of Intent forms for Temporary Measures for COVID-19 Application Form or the Fire-Related Host Winery Business Operations Application to our PBES cloud services here and PBES staff will be notified that it has been submitted.
