Well that was quick. Announced yesterday, San Mateo County Health Officer Dr. Scott Morrow has issued a new order to align the county with Gov. Gavin Newsom’s Resilience Roadmap. Businesses in San Mateo County will now follow the state’s schedule for reopening but must adhere to the local order’s COVID-19 safety measures and follow state guidance.

The order limits gatherings to no more than 50 people, outlines social distancing and face covering requirements, allows for social bubbles, and requires businesses to implement a social distancing protocol and written health and safety plans. With the local order taking immediate effect, according to state guidelines, the following businesses may now produce and post health and safety plans and resume operations:

•                Dine-in restaurants

•                Hair salons and barber shops

•                Casinos

•                Family entertainment centers

•                Restaurants, wineries and bars

•                Zoos and museums

•                Gyms and fitness centers

•                Hotels (for tourism and individual travel)

•                Cardrooms and racetracks

•                Campgrounds and outdoor recreation
