Santa Barbara County to Announce

Emergency Business Restrictions

 

This morning the State of California determined that transmission rates of COVID-19 were rising at a startling rate. Based on the spike in positive and active cases in our community, the state moved Santa Barbara County from our recent red tier to the most restrictive purple tier. Twenty-seven other counties were moved to the purple tier as a reference point for the situation, including all of the Central Coast and all Southern California counties.

We are expecting the Santa Barbara County Public Health Department to issue orders to conform with this decision within the next 24 hours. With the assumption that the county health order is in alignment with previously published documents, we expect the following changes to immediately affect our local business community:

 

  • Hotel and lodging businesses would close fitness centers (pools would remain open)
  • Retail store occupancy would be reduced from 50% to 25% of capacity
  • Mall food courts would be closed, while retail would remain open
  • Movie theaters would close indoor facilities
  • Museums, zoos and aquariums would cease indoor activities, while outdoor activities would continue
  • Restaurants (including bars and tasting rooms that serve food) would close all indoor dining, while outdoor dining would continue
