On July 13th, Governor Newsom and the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) announced additional statewide closures that impact Nevada County business operations.


 

What is closing statewide and in Nevada County:

Due to the current rates of disease transmission and the increase in hospitalization and ICU utilization, the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) has announced a statewide closure of the following operations

  • Dine-in Restaurants (indoor closed; to-go, delivery, curbside and outdoor seating with distancing allowed.)    
  • Wineries and Tasting Rooms (indoor closed; outdoor seating with distancing allowed)    
  • Movie Theater (indoor closed)    
  • Family Entertainment Centers (indoor closed)    
  • Zoos and Museums (indoor closed)    
  • Cardrooms (indoor closed)    
  • Brewpubs, breweries, bars, and pubs (indoor and outdoor closed). 

Under the statewide order, this remains in effect until further notice

What is closing in counties that are on State’s County Monitoring List?:

Nevada County is not currently on the State’s County Monitoring List, though many neighboring counties are, including Placer, Sutter, Yuba, and Sacramento Counties. Should Nevada County end up on that list for three consecutive days, additional closures of indoor operations will be mandated. Those indoor operations include the following: 

  • Fitness Centers     
  • Places of Worship    
  • Offices for non-critical sectors    
  • Personal care services    
  • Hair salons and barber shops    
  • Malls

Outdoor operations, however, may be conducted if a business can do so while still taking all infection control measures and while wearing face coverings.

The State of California has 4 stages of gradual reopening:
