California has begun to reopen some non-essential businesses.  Many counties, including Alameda, Contra Costa, Los Angeles, Marin, San Francisco, and San Mateo (just to name some), have issued orders to enter the State’s initial Phase 2 plan.  In addition, Santa Clara County has issued an order that will be effective on May 22, 2020 that also allows some non-essential businesses to reopen.  In the initial Phase 2 plan, certain specified businesses may open, such as retail businesses (for curbside pickup only), subject to compliance with state and local directives for safety.  This often includes the implementation of written protocols, which vary jurisdiction-by-jurisdiction and industry-to-industry.  Over the weekend, the CDC also issued industry-specific guidelines for consideration in the reopening process, which may be accessed here at Appendix F.
