Attention Orange County Businesses…

NO “SHUT DOWN” Order for All Employers!

Businesses Restrictions Have Been Placed on Restaurants and Bars

Less than six hours after ordering non-essential businesses to close, the OC Health Officer clarified its OC Health Officer Initial Order – March 17, 2020. For details please refer to the attached documents:

“Today’s order from County Health Officer Dr. Nichole Quick is NOT an order to shelter in place. It is not a lockdown. It is important for all Orange County businesses to remain open while practicing social distancing consistent with the Governor’s guidance. However, following State guidelines, all bars and other establishments that serve alcohol and do not serve food shall close. All restaurants and other business establishments that serve food shall close all onsite dining. Pickup, delivery and drive thru services may remain open. It is important for all Orange County residents to read the order in its entirety.”

Unfortunately, the order as issued caused wide-spread confusion. To provide additional clarity requested by Orange County residents and businesses, the County will be issuing an amended Health Officer’s Order.
