Sacramento County Current Tier

Sacramento County will move back to the more restrictive Tier 1 Purple. Effective at noon on Friday, Nov. 13, 2020, the amended Sacramento County Health Order will align with the State’s Purple Tier 1 for allowable activities, which closes certain indoor operations or reduces operational capacity.

Nov. 13, 2020, Sacramento County Health Order

In alignment with Purple Tier 1, the following sectors are permitted for OUTDOOR operations only until further notice. These sectors must still maintain mitigation measures (social distancing, face covering, and sanitization):

  • Cardrooms, satellite wagering
  • Family Entertainment Centers (e.g. bowling alleys, miniature golf, batting cages, kart racing, and arcades)
  • Gyms and fitness centers
  • Movie theaters (maximum 25% capacity or 100 people, whichever is fewer)
  • Museums, zoos, aquariums
  • Places of worship (maximum 25% capacity or 100 people, whichever is fewer)
  • Playgrounds and recreational facilities
  • Restaurants
  • Wineries
  • Bars, pubs, brewpubs, and breweries may operate outdoors if they are offering sit-down, outdoor meals. Outdoor operations may be conducted under a tent, canopy, or other shelters as long as no more than one side is closed.

In alignment with Purple Tier 1, the following sectors are open for INDOOR operations. These sectors must still maintain mitigation measures (social distancing, face covering, and sanitization) and specific modifications in parenthesis below:

  • All retail (maximum 25% capacity)
  • Critical infrastructure
  • Hair salons and barbershops
  • Libraries (maximum 25% capacity)
  • Nail salons and electrolysis operations
  • Personal care services (e.g. body waxing, estheticians, tattoo, massage)
  • Professional sports (without live audiences)
  • Shopping centers (e.g. malls, destination centers, swap meets, excluding food courts and common areas) (maximum 25% capacity)
  • In alignment with Purple Tier 1, bars, breweries, and distilleries are prohibited from operating with the exception of those that serve sit-down, outdoor meals.

Schools

In alignment with CDPH requirements, schools (all grade levels) that have reopened for in-person instruction, either under a waiver or while Sacramento County was in Red Tier 2 (September 29 – November 10, 2020), are permitted to continue to conduct in-person instruction. Schools that have not reopened must wait until they are eligible again, either by acquiring a waiver from Sacramento County Public Health (grades TK-6 only) or by waiting until Sacramento County returns to Red Tier 2 for at least two weeks.

If a school was implementing a phased re-opening (e.g., only opened grades K-2 for in-person instruction with set plans to phase in grades 3-6) while Sacramento County was in Red Tier 2, the school site may continue their phased re-opening. This is only applicable to individual school sites. If a district has a phased reopening of their schools, the schools in that district that did not open for in-person instruction may not reopen until Sacramento County has returned to Red Tier 2 for two weeks.

Schools conducting in-person instruction must maintain mitigation measures, including social distancing, face coverings, and sanitization, in compliance with schools guidance from CDPH and Sacramento County Public Health.

Tier Advancement

Counties are required to remain in an assigned tier for a minimum of three weeks and must meet the criteria for the next tier for two consecutive weeks before being able to advance to the next tier.

“To advance back into the Red Tier 2, Sacramento County needs to have lower daily case rates. The only way to do that is to do what we know works,” said Sacramento County Health Officer Dr. Olivia Kasirye. “We all have a part in this and we must be committed to social distancing measures in public spaces (6ft apart, wear face coverings, wash hands, etc.) and to avoid gathering with non-household members.”

CARES Act

On March 27, 2020, the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) was signed into law. The CARES Act provides approximately $2 trillion in funding to stabilize the economy and provide broad relief to individuals and businesses directly or indirectly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. This guide provides information about the major programs available from the Small Business Administration (SBA) to address these needs, as well as additional tax provisions that are outside the scope of SBA.

UPDATE: Congress recently approved an additional $310 billion in funding to restore the PPP Program, which had run out of money.

Watch List

Eviction Bans are currently under the jurisdiction of local government entities (Cities and Counties)

Senate Bill 939 – Commercial Evictions

This bill would prohibit the eviction of tenants of commercial real property, including businesses and non-profit organizations, during the pendency of the state of emergency proclaimed by the Governor on March 4, 2020, related to COVID-19. The bill would make it a misdemeanor, an act of unfair competition, and an unfair business practice to violate the foregoing prohibition. The bill would render void and unenforceable evictions that occurred after the proclamation of the state of emergency but before the effective date of this bill. The bill would not prohibit the continuation of evictions that lawfully began prior to the proclamation of the state of emergency, and would not preempt local ordinances prohibiting or imposing more severe penalties for the same conduct.
