Industry and Workplace Guidance

Industry and workplace guidance has been developed in supporting your operation with the COVID-19 response, and plans for reopening. The guidance resources below are comprised from sources across the Federal, State and Local level. Just like we experienced with the Shelter at Home Order, the State’s Guidance defines the minimum requirements. 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 2020-72: COVID-19 temporary measures to establish health and safety business operations. Please upload completed Temporary Measures Application Forms to our PBES cloud services here and PBES staff will be notified that it has been submitted. 

When Will Businesses Reopen?

The State’s current plan is to issue guidance regarding “How” sectors can re-open, but leave the timing (“When”) to the Counties, based on local conditions.

Our current local Shelter-at-Home Order (May 7) and our local conditions permit such reopening to occur as State guidance is issued. This means that Napa County is unable to approve the reopening of any sectors until such guidance documents are posted to the State’s website. Once State guidance documents are posted, the local health officer can decide, based on local conditions and disease epidemiology, whether it is prudent to allow such sectors to reopen. Currently, our local Shelter-at-Home Order and our local conditions permit such reopening to occur as State guidance is issued. If local conditions change (i.e., worsen), then a new local Shelter-at-Home Order will be issued that may set forth a different process.

Please remember that this further progression through Stage 2 and into Stage 3 is possible for our community only because the County’s variance attestation that we are sufficiently prepared for a possible surge was posted by the State on May 19. In order for more reopening to occur in Napa County, we must all continue to engage in physical distancing, follow guidance on face covering requirements, and adhere to all aspects of State industry guidance documents. The County’s continued progress depends upon all of us acting in socially and behaviorally responsible ways. Thank you for your help!
