City of Menifee Reopening

Menifee Covid Reopening Stages

The City of Menifee has pivoted to use the State's Resilience Roadmap to ensure that we can adapt and reopen together as quickly and safely as possible under the State's order. The State determines when and how each county may reopen based on a county's ability to meet the State's criteria. The State has said that some counties may reopen faster if they are able to show greater progress.

Counties that have met the readiness criteria prescribed by the California Department of Public Health can open additional businesses as outlined on the County Variance page.

Effective July 13, 2020, ALL counties must close indoor operations in these sectors:

  • 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

Additionally, bars, brewpubs, breweries, and pubs must close all operations both indoor and outdoor statewide, unless they are offering sit-down, outdoor dining. Alcohol can only be sold in the same transaction as a meal.

Counties that have remained on the County Monitoring List for 3 consecutive days will be required to shut down the following industries or activities unless they can be modified to operate outside or by pick-up.

  • Gyms and fitness centers
  • Places of worship and cultural ceremonies, like weddings and funerals
  • Offices for non-critical infrastructure sectors
  • Personal care services, like nail salons and body waxing
  • Hair salons and barbershops
  • Shopping malls

Shops that offer tattoos, piercings and electrolysis may not be operated outdoors and must close.
