Indoor Dining Now Permitted at Lake County Restaurants, with Modifications

Lake County, CA (June 4, 2020) – Because COVID-19 activity has remained manageable in Lake County, local restaurants are now permitted to reopen for indoor dining.

This is an exciting step toward normalcy, and we are grateful to all residents for taking precautions; your actions have helped slow the spread.

All reopening businesses in Lake County must take precautions, and complete and post Social Distancing Protocol and Business Certification Forms.  COVID-19 Reopening Plans must also be made available to customers or public officials, on request.

Forms and resources for Lake County businesses are available here:
http://health.co.lake.ca.us/Coronavirus/Businesses.htm

As a reminder, we are now in the early phase of Stage 3 of the Governor’s Resilience Roadmap.  When the State issues guidance for new sectors of the business community to reopen, I will determine if the health situation in Lake County is stable enough to allow relaxation of the restrictions.  Unless and until guidance is developed by the CA Department of Public Health and CalOSHA, local jurisdictions cannot reopen new business sectors.

More information on the process is available here:

Business owners looking to safely reopen can find sector-specific guidance here:
