The County of Orange provided an update today on which businesses are allowed to open and on rules surrounding masks.
The following businesses, services and locations are allowed to operate, with modifications outlined by California Department of Public Health guidance:
• Movie theaters and family entertainment centers
• Restaurants, wineries and bars
• Zoos and museums
• Gyms and fitness centers
• Hotels (for tourism and individual travel)
• Card rooms and racetracks
• Campgrounds and outdoor recreation
• Public and HOA swimming pools
• Restaurant takeout, delivery, and dine-in
• Office-based businesses; telework remains strongly encouraged
• Outdoor museums
• Shopping malls, strip malls
• Logistics and manufacturing
• Hair salons
• Church services, funerals, cultural services, and protests
Additionally, the use of face coverings is no longer required in public but is strongly recommended.
