Today Lake Forest opened some businesses under stage two of local and state guidelines named the "Resilience Roadmap." Businesses may open as long as they comply with the guidelines voted on by the Orange County Board of Supervisors as well as state and federal orders.
ORANGE COUNTY'S BUSINESS GUIDELINES FOR REOPENING. The following press release was sent by Supervisor Dough Chaffee, an outside organization. Lake Forest Shop & Dine does not edit press releases and we publish them to bring you direct information.
Orange County has seen protesting over the past few weeks in support of opening businesses and resuming life. As impatient as county residents may be, there are some challenges Orange County has to face outside the county before opening up. In a press conference Monday, Governor Newsom said any decisions on reopening would be done in collaboration with other western states. Currently there is a Western Pact with California and four other Western states.
Starting Friday, April 24 some essential workers in Orange County are required to wear face masks while at work. The directive does not apply to customers. Vice Chairman Andrew Do, First District Supervisor, initiated the directive synonymous with the April 1 guidance from the California Department of Public Health, suggesting face coverings to be worn in public.
California has pushed efforts in the last week to procure medical supplies, address at risk populations and set-up alternative care sites to take pressure off healthcare facilities during the Covid-19 pandemic. We have touched on California's current reported numbers, ethnicity breakdowns, testing in the state, medical facilities, at risk populations, jobs, businesses and a list of current suspensions and moratoriums.
Private doctors are starting to administer Covid-19 tests throughout Orange County, offering certificates saying you are negative and may go back to work. Orange County Deputy Agency Director, Public Health Services David M. Souleles addressed the elusive paperwork and private practice testing groups in Orange County.
Hi Locals! We know everything has been moving at the speed of light so we wanted to provide a quick recap for you that's easy, quick and factual. This is a three-part installation starting with our favorite city and county: Lake Forest, Orange County!
