These Are the Businesses Being Allowed to Open Starting Friday

If you hadn’t heard, CA Governor Gavin Newsom stated earlier today that we will be going into phase 2 of re-opening the economy starting Friday.

This will be phase 2 of a total of 4 phases to completely re-open California’s economy.

Newsom says, “Some sectors where there’s a lower risk of tranmission will be able to adapt & re-open with modifications. This will include some retail and manufacturing/logistics”.

As of Friday, places that ARE allowed to open are as follows:

-Clothing stores



-Sporting goods stores

-Offices where working remotely isn’t possible, but can be modified to make the environment safer for employees.

-Childcare facilities


These stores are ONLY allowed to use curbside pick-up

What Friday’s phase 2 does NOT include are places like:

-Offices (continue to telework)

-Restaurants (seated dining)

-Shopping malls

It doesn’t seem to be MUCH of a change, but at least there are many smaller businesses that were forced to close can at least begin to open with curb-side pickup.

Personally I’m excited for the time when we can go to a bar, or even sit at a restaurant, which are included in phase 3.

The next phase – phase 3 – includes the following businesses:

-Personal care (hair and nail salons, gyms)

-Entertainment venues (movie theaters, sports without live audiences)

-In-person religious services (churches, weddings)
