• Mandated Mask Coverings

    Due to increases in Covid-19 positive cases, hospitalizations and ICU utilization, Governor Newsom has mandated that effective July 13, 2020, ALL counties must close bars, pubs, brewpubs and breweries.

    In addition, INDOOR operations for the following sectors are restricted across the state:
    • Dine-in restaurants
    • Wineries and tasting rooms
    • Movie theaters
    • Family entertainment centers (for example: bowling alleys, miniature golf, batting cages and arcades)
    • Zoos and museums
    • Cardrooms

    To date the following OUTDOOR businesses are allowed to remain open in Tehama County:
    • Restaurants
    • Wineries and tasting rooms
    • Family entertainment centers
    • Zoos and museums
    • Cardrooms

    The state is monitoring each county and at this time Tehama County has been successful at maintaining allowable levels for certain data points and is not currently on the state’s watchlist. These metrics, and others, are monitored locally on a daily basis.

    If Tehama County ends up on the watchlist for 3 or more consecutive days, we will then have to close indoor operations of the following businesses:
    • Gyms and Fitness Centers
    • Places of Worship
    • Protests
    • Offices for non-critical infrastructure sectors
    • Personal care services (nail salons, massage parlors, tattoo shops)
    • Hair Salons and Barber Shops
    • Malls

    Do your part to help us stay off the watchlist. We have seen an increase in cases in Tehama county many of which have been caused by social gatherings. We understand that this is the time of year when many of us want to get together with friends and family but we urge you to take the precaution measures seriously. Gatherings should be limited to 10 or less individuals from the same household, you should be wearing a face covering when you go out in public and maintain proper social distancing. This is key to slowing the transmission of COVID-19 and being able to keep our local businesses open and our community healthy.
