Limited Stay At Home Order
The State has issued a limited Stay at Home Order generally requiring that non-essential work, movement and gatherings stop between 10 pm and 5 am in counties in the Purple Tier per the State’s Blueprint for a Safer Economy. The order will take effect at 10 p.m. Saturday, November 21 and remain in effect until 5 a.m., December 21, although it may be extended or revised as needed by the State.
The Order does not prevent restaurants from operating after 10 p.m. for takeout and does not prevent community members from going to the grocery store or pharmacy for essential needs or walking their dog in their neighborhood. The Order does not prevent members of the same household from leaving their residences together, as long as they do not intermingle with others while out. This is not an exhaustive list, but we hope these examples will help clarify what residents and businesses may be permitted to do under the State’s Order. It does mean that we must restrict our interactions with people outside of our households for non-essential activities or social gatherings.
Restaurant/Business Clarification:
  • Sit down dining may only take place with members of the same household, it must be outdoors and must end by 10 pm. Restaurants can remain open for takeout or delivery past 10 pm. There is no required closure time.
  • Grocery stores and pharmacies may stay open after 10 pm.
  • All businesses not operating as part of California’s Critical Infrastructure workforce must close by 10 pm. View the list of essential workforces from the State at:
“We ask our residents to continue to protect themselves, their loved ones, and their communities from COVID-19 by limiting gathering with anyone you don’t live with, wearing a face covering whenever you leave home, maintaining at least 6 feet of distance from anyone you don’t live with, wash your hands frequently,” said Rigoberto Vargas, Public Health Director.
