Tehama County Reopening Plan

(including the City of Corning)

The County Variance Plan was approved on Wednesday, May 13th. You can find the plan here.

The plan allows the County and the City of Corning to more quickly move through Phase 2. Only those businesses approved to reopen as part of the Plan will be given their certificates. Currently all businesses in stage 2 can reopen with approved Reopening Plans. Businesses with approved Reopening Plans will receive a certificate to place in their window. These businesses include:

  • Retail
  • Manufacturers and Logistics to support retail
  • Childcare
  • Office-based business (telework is still strongly encouraged)
  • Car washes
  • Pet grooming
  • Landscape gardening
  • Outdoor museums
  • Open gallery spaces and other public spaces with modifications
  • Dine in restaurants

Businesses that have not already done so should immediately submit their Reopening Plans here.

20 sectoral industry guidelines are provided by California Department of Public Health.

Businesses in Stage 3 and still not approved to open include:

  • Personal services such as nail salons, tattoo parlors, hair salons, gyms and fitness studios
  • Entertainment venues
  • Indoor museums
  • Libraries
  • Community centers including public pools, playgrounds, and picnic areas
  • Limited- capacity religious services
  • Bars and nightclubs
  • Festivals and community events
  • Theme parks
  • Hotels for leisure and tourism

As a word of caution, it is incredibly important businesses and residents follow social distancing, wear personal protective equipment as appropriate and advised by the CDC, and partake in proper disinfection and hygiene. We all need to do our part so that our Reopen Tehama County Plan can continue to move forward. Moving too quickly through the reopening process can cause a major setback and could require us to revert back to more restrictive measures. Let’s prove we can reopen safely!
