California Department of Public Health has approved and posted the Monterey County COVID-19 County Variance Attestation
The California Department of Public Health has approved and posted the Monterey County COVID-19 County Variance Attestation Form which will allow Monterey County to advance into expanded Stage 2.
Expanded Stage 2 allows the following to open in Monterey County:
- Dine-in Restaurants: other amenities, like bars or gaming areas, are not permitted in Stage 2
- Hair salons and barber shops
- Schools with modifications
Earlier this week, the Governor announced that places of worship and shopping malls would be allowed under early stage 2.
A new Shelter-in-Place Order was also issued yesterday to reflect the changes. Travel for non-essential activities is still not allowed. Apart from worship services, gatherings of people not from your household are not permitted.
Guidance for the newly allowed businesses is posted on the Monterey County Health Department’s website.
