The State of California established a Resiliency Roadmap to guide the process for modifying the statewide stay-at-home order. The Roadmap includes a four-stage framework under which businesses will be permitted to gradually reopen. The timeframe for each stage of reopening is dependent upon progress made toward six public health indicators.
