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.

May 23 Update - The State approved the County of Orange's plan to move further into Stage 2 and allow additional businessness to reopen. Please see the Later Stage 2 section below for the businesses permitted to open, with modifications, under the State-approved plan.
