City of Menifee Reopening

Menifee Worker in Mask by City Sunset

California has a new blueprint for reducing COVID-19 in the state with revised criteria for loosening and tightening restrictions on activities. Every county in California is assigned to a tier based on its test positivity and adjusted case rate for tier assignment including metrics from the last three weeks. Additionally, a new health equity metric will take effect on October 6, 2020. In order to advance to the next less restrictive tier, each county will need to meet an equity metric or demonstrate targeted investments to eliminate disparities in levels of COVID-19 transmission, depending on its size. The California Health Equity Metric is designed to help guide counties in their continuing efforts to reduce COVID-19 cases in all communities and requires more intensive efforts to prevent and mitigate the spread of COVID-19 among Californians who have been disproportionately impacted by this pandemic.

Riverside County is currently in the Widespread "PURPLE" TIER

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.
