Reopening businesses 

by Ashley Bautista

The County of Ventura has reached an important turning point for our community, County and our local economy. We have moved into Stage 2 of California’s roadmap to reopening where some lower-risk workplaces can gradually open with adaptations. This allows retail businesses to use curbside pickup or delivery to sell their goods and related manufacturing and logistics businesses to open.

Visit and review the guidance 

Upon reviewing the guidance, complete a detailed risk assessment of your business in accordance with the state guidelines

Complete a written worksite-specific COVID-19 Prevention Plan and post it at your business

Implement the prevention measures identified in your worksite-specific COVID-19 Prevention Plan

Designate an on-duty employee responsible for monitoring compliance with your plan

Complete the attestation

Upon completing your attestation, an official from your local jurisdiction may conduct a site visit

If you were a business that was already permitted to be open you too need to register and follow the seven steps.

Here are some examples of businesses that are able to reopen in addition to the businesses that were already open in Stage 1:

  • Dentistry for preventative care.
  • Retail for curbside delivery
  • Manufacturing
  • Logistics
  • Pet grooming
  • Childcare
  • Office based businesses (telework remains strongly encouraged)
  • Equestrian Centers/Horseback Riding
  • Jet Ski/Boat/Bike Rentals
  • Archery/Shooting Ranges
  • Outdoor photography
  • Outdoor museums
