Californians are flattening the curve as part of the stay at home order issued on March 19, 2020. These efforts have allowed the state to move forward on the roadmap for modifying the statewide order. The Resilience Roadmap stages that California is using to guide its gradual reopening process are:
Stage 1: Safety and Preparedness
Stage 2: Lower-Risk Workplaces
Stage 3: Higher-Risk Workplaces
Stage 4: End of Stay at Home Order
When modifications are advanced and the state’s six indicators show we’ve made enough progress, we can move to the next stage of the roadmap. California is now in Stage 2, where retail, related logistics and manufacturing, office workplaces, limited personal services, outdoor museums, child care, and essential businesses can open with modifications. The state is issuing guidance to help these workplaces reopen safely. Some communities may move through Stage 2 faster if they are able to show greater progress, and counties that have met the readiness criteria and worked with the California Department of Public Health can open more workplaces as outlined in the County Variance Guidance. Los Angeles County was granted a variance and is now in Stage 3.
