June 1, 2020
The County of San Diego recently issued updated guidance stating, starting June 2, all guests at hotels open to provide COVID-19-related services need to sign a certification at check-in verifying they are staying at the hotel in compliance with the stay-at-home order. The certification can be printed in both English and Spanish. Hotels are not allowed to open for any other purposes. Hotels that are used for COVID-19 mitigation and containment measures, treatment measures, providing accommodation for essential workers, or providing housing solutions, including measures to protect homeless populations are essential under the State orders. Hotels are higher-risk workplaces and may not be open for non-essential purposes (leisure guests) until Stage 3.

Hair Salons and Barber Shops
On May 26, San Diego County approved the reopening of hair salons and barber shops. This does not include nail salons or spas. Hair salons and barber shops will need to complete the County's Safe Reopening Plan, implement all mandatory measures, print it, and post it at each public entrance before reopening. A copy of the Plan must also be distributed to each employee or worker. All hair salons and barber shops must adhere to the Industry Guidance provided by the State of California. Only hair services are permitted. No services are to be performed on the face or body.
Additional signage at entrances is required stating face coverings must be worn, social distancing must be maintained, and no one is to enter the facility if they are exhibiting any symptoms. Examples of posters can be found below in the Food Businesses section, but businesses are permitted to create their own signs.
May 20, 2020
We are excited to announce that on May 20, the state approved the County of San Diego's request to move into Phase 2B, which allows retail businesses and restaurants to allow customers inside with restrictions and modifications. Unfortunately, fitness centers, hotels/motels and other Phase 3 businesses are still not permitted to open. A date for Phase 3 has not yet been announced.
Retail Businesses will need to complete the County's Safe Reopening Plan, implement all mandatory measures, print it, and post it at each public entrance before reopening. A copy of the Plan must also be distributed to each employee. Businesses that have already been open for pickup or delivery will need to update their plan. Essential businesses that already have customers in-store do not need to update their plans, but are still required to have the Social Distancing and Sanitation Protocol posted at all customer entrances. Additional guidance can be found below.
Food Businesses will need to review the guidance below and complete the San Diego Restaurant Operating Protocol and implement all mantatory measures before reopening. The Protocol form must be posted at all customer entrances. The San Diego Safe Dining Posters must also be printed and displayed at all entrances.
More information about reopening can be found on the San Diego County website. If businesses have any specific questions, they can email COVID19BusinessQuestions@sdcounty.ca.gov.
