County of Orange Moves into Stage Two of California’s Resiliency Roadmap

Today (May 23, 2020) the State of California has approved the County of Orange’s plan to accelerate local businesses into Stage Two. The County was able to successfully demonstrate that Orange County meets the State’s required metrics as outlined in the California Resiliency Roadmap.

In Stage Two, the County of Orange will be allowed to have the following businesses re-open with adaptations:

  • In-person dining reservations
  • Retail shopping with social distancing and curbside pickup
  • Manufacturing
  • Offices (when telework not possible)
  • Outdoor Museums
  • Limited Services, such as car washes, pet groomers, tanning salons, and gardening services 

Please visit for more information related to your specific industry.

The OC Health Care Agency (HCA) encourages business owners and operators review the State’s guidance and do the following:

  • Find the guidance that is most relevant to their respective industries.
  • Prepare a plan after reading.
  • Put the plan into action.
  • Once completed, post the industry-specific checklist in their workplaces.

Before businesses who meet the Stage Two criteria take the step to re-open, the HCA strongly recommends they perform the following steps:

  • Perform a detailed risk assessment and implement a site-specific protection plan.
  • Train employees on how to limit the spread of COVID-19, including how to screen themselves for symptoms and stay home if they have them.
  • Implement individual control measures and screenings.
  • Implement disinfecting protocols.
  • Implement physical distancing guidelines.

The criteria that the County of Orange was able to meet to move into Stage Two included the following:

  • Less than 5 percent of daily COVID-19 hospitalizations over a seven-day period or no more than 20 COVID hospitalizations on any single day in the past 14 days.
  • Fewer than 25 new cases per 100,000 residents in the past 14 days or less than 8 percent testing positive in the past seven days.
  • Have a capacity to be able to test 1.5 per every 1,000 residents and at least 15 staff per 100,000 county population trained and available for contact tracing.
  • Hospital capacity for a possible surge of 35 percent of hospitalizations due to COVID-19 cases in addition to providing usual care for other patients.
