San Joaquin County Public Health Officer, Dr. Maggie Park, signed an updated County Stay-At-Home Order which provides that the following activities will be reopened beginning on Friday, June 12, 2020:
Casinos/Card rooms/Racetracks (without spectators)
Campgrounds/Outdoor recreation including pools
Hotels for leisure
Dr. Park determined that the reopening of these sectors is appropriate after: 1) conferring with representatives of California Department of Public Health (CDPH); 2) recognizing that counties bordering San Joaquin County are opening additional sectors of the economy; and 3) that the nearby availability of such activities and business will likely result in the residents of San Joaquin County traveling outside of the County potentially increasing the spread of COVID-19.
Per this updated order, all County residents are authorized to leave their residences to engage with these businesses and activities. All residents and business are required to fully implement the guidance issued by CDPH, which can be found at www.covid19.ca.gov.
Businesses that are still not allowed to be open include:
Bars and wineries
Family entertainment centers/Movie theaters
Film TV and Movie Production
Pro-Sports with spectator audiences
Zoos and museums
“While San Joaquin County is still on the State monitoring list due to the increasing number of hospitalizations and number of individuals in the ICU, CDPH has informed the County that we can continue to reopen if the Public Health Officer determines it is safe to do so” said Dr. Park. “Since the businesses we recommend reopening are low-risk for COVID-19 transmission, I believe we are taking the right approach balancing public health and social and economic activity.”
