City of Menifee Reopening

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

When will we move into each new stage?

We will know more about when we can move into the rest of Stage 2 when the state approves our Attestation. The timing for when we can move into Stage 3 and 4 is unknown at this time, but we will provide that information as soon as it becomes available.

My business doesn't have a guidance document. Is one coming?

We will continue to post new guidance from the state and best practices from the county as they are created. In the meantime, all businesses can utilize our Riverside County Readiness To Reopen Framework to start planning for their reopening.

What size of non-public gatherings - in indoor or outdoor spaces - are currently allowable?

In the absence of specific state guidance, the City of Menifee is following federal guidance that gatherings of up to ten people are allowable when appropriate physical distancing and sanitation measures can be maintained. High-risk individuals are still encouraged to not attend gatherings of any kind

How can I help?

The health and safety of our residents and the economic health of our communities and businesses will require health, government, education, business, and community members work in concert now and through all phases of reopening.

In the same way that our local Shelter at Home Order has required each resident in our communities to modify behavior and practices to manage the spread of COVID-19, it is anticipated the phases of reopening the City of Menifee will also require our communities to sustain and modify behaviors over time.

We will all need to adapt to a new normal as the community of Menifee and commerce open gradually and safely, in phases.

What signage is available to post?

The CDC has signage available for print. You can filter by signage type.
