New Shelter in Place Order Allows Places of Worship, In-Store Retail to Operate with Restrictions

San Mateo County Health Officer Dr. Scott Morrow today issued a revised shelter in place order to allow, with restrictions and safety measures, places of worship to hold services and retail stores to allow customers inside.

The order, which goes into effect on June 1, 2020, further aligns the County with Gov. Gavin Newsom’s Resilience Roadmap.

The County’s health order also removes the previous limitations on access and activities at beaches in San Mateo County. Beaches may now operate normally, as long as beachgoers adhere to social distancing and face covering guidelines.

For childcare establishments, summer camps, and other educational or recreational institutions or programs providing care or supervision for children, the stable group time requirement has been decreased from four weeks to three consecutive weeks.

This gradual and measured resumption of activity is designed to manage the overall volume, duration, and intensity of person-to-person contact to prevent a surge in COVID-19 cases in San Mateo County and neighboring counties.  Find out more here.
