We’re in a Sea of Purple

Governor Newsom removed all Regional Stay at Home Orders for the State of California today. By doing so, California reverted back to the Four Stage “Blueprint for a Safer Economy” and the color coded tiers. With this move Governor Newsom paved the way for many businesses that were closed by the stay at home orders to reopen in accordance with each county’s Tier Status.

Ventura County is currently in the “Purple Tier” so what does that mean? Following the guidelines for operating in the “Purple Tier”, the following businesses will be allowed to open for “OUTDOOR” operations only, until further notice:

  • Restaurants
  • Gyms & Fitness Centers (12 feet social distancing required)
  • Places of worship
  • Playgrounds and recreational facilities
  • Family Entertainment Centers (i.e. bowling alleys, miniature golf, batting cages, kart racing, and arcades)
  • Movie theaters
  • Museum, zoos, aquariums
  • Wineries
  • Cardrooms, satellite wagering

Bar, pubs brewpubs and breweries can be open outdoors provided a sit-down, outdoor meal is offered. Outdoor operations can be under a tent or canopy provided no more than one side is closed.

In addition to outdoor dining, the following items must also be adhered too:

  • Sit down dining must happen only with members of the same household, it must be outdoors and cannot go beyond 11:00 pm.
  • The maximum time a patron can remain on site is 1-1/2 hours.
  • Restaurants can offer takeout or delivery past 11:00 pm is permitting allows.

Businesses that can operate INDOORS are:

  • All retail (maximum 25% capacity)
  • Critical infrastructure
  • Hair salons and barbershops
  • Libraries (maximum 25% capacity)
  • Nail salons and electrolysis operations
  • Personal care services (i.e. body waxing, estheticians, tattoo, massage)
  • Professional sports (without live audience)
  • Shopping centers (i.e. malls, destination centers, swap meets, (excluding food courts and common areas) (maximum capacity 25%)

Just because businesses are being allowed to reopen, we must still remember that COVID-19 is still a significant threat and we must remain careful in our interactions with the community.

Remember:

  • When in public, wear a mask
  • Avoid gathering with people outside of your immediate household
  • Maintain social and physical distancing
  • Wash your hands frequently
  • If you are not feeling well, stay home, get tested
  • If you have the opportunity, it is recommended to get a COVID-19 inoculation
  • If you do not have to go out, don’t

How My Success Started

Mary Neuschweinstein, CEO of EthicPower Ltd.

In publishing and graphic design, lorem ipsum is common placeholder text used to demonstrate the graphic elements of a document or visual presentation, such as web pages, typography, and graphical layout. It is a form of "greeking".

Even though using "lorem ipsum" often arouses curiosity due to its resemblance to classical Latin, it is not intended to have meaning. Where text is visible in a document, people tend to focus on the textual content rather than upon overall presentation, so publishers use lorem ipsum when displaying a typeface or design in order to direct the focus to presentation. "Lorem ipsum" also approximates a typical distribution of letters in English.
