    Outdoor Dining Can Continue in Santa Clara County; New Risk Reduction Order to Take Effect Monday, July 13th

    This morning, the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) posted Santa Clara County’s variance attestation form to its website, which means that the State has approved the County’s “variance” application.  As a result, outdoor dining can continue in Santa Clara County.  This also means that the new local Health Order announced by the Public Health Officer last week, which puts in place across-the-board risk reduction measures, will now go into effect on Monday, July 13th.  The County will be posting sector-specific directives related to the new County Risk Reduction Order over the coming days. Over the past few weeks, COVID-19 cases have been on the rise across the state, including Santa Clara County.  These trends are quite concerning, and make it clear that all members of the community must strictly follow all social distancing requirements and protocols and consistently utilize face coverings.  More information about the County’s Risk Reduction Order is available at www.sccgov.org/cv19.

    As a reminder, all businesses, including those currently opened, must submit updated Social Distancing protocols by Monday, July 13 at www.covid19prepared.org.

    A MESSAGE TO OUR COMMUNITY

    In this time of challenge and outrage, as Americans across this country deal with the personal and professional disruptions from the COVID-19 pandemic  and now march in protest of systemic racism and inequality, it is clear that we still have a long way to go.  It is even more incumbent on us in the business community to model the behaviors and practices of acceptance, diversity and inclusiveness that have built this nation into the strongest economy in the world.
