The California Department of Public Health announced this week that counties that have attested to meeting the criteria for accelerated re-opening may reopen with modifications places of worship for religious services, in-store retail shopping and hair salons and barbershops. Therefore, the Sacramento County Public Health Officer, Dr. Olivia Kasirye, revised the Public Health Order’s Appendix B that is effective at 11:59 p.m., May 26, and will be in effect until it is rescinded or amended by the Health Officer. The Health Order aligns with previous health orders, but supersedes those of March 19, April 7, and May 1.
The Public Health Order continues to reinforce the direction that all individuals stay home as much as possible and carry on with social distancing protocols while beginning to relax restrictions on lower-risk businesses. Sacramento County was given the approval by California Department of Public Health (CDPH) - view the Variance Attestation approval for Sacramento County.
