MARIPOSA — Mariposa County officials received word late Wednesday from the California Department of Public Health that the county’s “Roadmap to Reopen” has been approved and the county can now immediately move to Phase 2.5.
What does Phase 2.5 mean for Mariposa County residents? To stay in Phase 2.5, the county must avoid the spread of COVID-19, so Mariposa County officials have instituted the following guidelines:
- Non-essential travel is still not allowed
- Social distancing
- Cover your cough and sneeze
- Avoid touching your face
- Wash your hands
- Isolate yourself should you become sick
Business’s allowed to open include essential businesses, retail (relaxed modifications), logistics and manufacturing, dine-in restaurants and schools and childcare facilities.
MCUSD officials have already said all county schools will remain closed for the remainder of the year.
Additional businesses that can reopen in the county include personal services (limited to car washes, pet grooming, tanning); malls and swap meets; office-based businesses (although teleworking is still encouraged); and outdoor museums.
Here is more information about how Phase 2.5 will work in Mariposa County.
