COVID-19 Business Roadmap
While we continue to navigate the effects of COVID-19 on our business community, the City of Citrus Heights is here for you. We have gathered some tools and resources to help you prepare for the phased re-opening outlined by the Governor, and we have summarized what these directives mean for the Citrus Heights community. Detailed information can be found in the Governor’s Resiliency Roadmap.
The City of Citrus Heights has been given the go-ahead to move further into stage 2 of California’s Resilience Roadmap, thanks to the County’s written attestation to the California Department of Public Health. Stage 2B outlines the next wave of Citrus Heights businesses (listed below) that can resume operations, with strict social distancing and personal protective directives, as soon as the County’s Health Order is amended, which will be May 22 at the latest.
✔️ Restaurants may resume dine-in seating with reduced capacity (curbside pick-up and delivery still encouraged for those in the at-risk population)
✔️Small offices may reopen when tele-work is not possible
✔️Child care, day care, and family day care
✔️Outdoor gyms and recreation (including dog parks and tennis courts)
✔️Outdoor museums, art galleries, and theaters
✔️Full public transportation
✔️Micro enterprise retail and storefronts—which means ideally 10 employees or less
✔️Medical and dental preventive services and elective surgeries as clinically appropriate
✔️Agriculture, food, and beverage cultivation, process, and distribution
✔️Businesses that supply/support essential businesses may open by appointment only
✔️Plumbers, electricians, landscapers, etc. may resume using social distancing and personal protective equipment
✔️Outdoor Venues: allowed to provide drive-through graduation ceremonies
✔️ Places of Worship (at 25% of building’s capacity, up to 100 people)
✔️ Salons & Barbershops
✔️ In-store Retail Shopping
Before Reopening, All Facilities Must
- Perform a detailed risk assessment and implement a site-specific protection plan
- Train employees on how to limit the spread of COVID-19, including how to screen themselves for symptoms and stay home if they have them
- Implement individual control measures and screenings
- Implement disinfecting protocols
- Implement physical distancing guidelines
- Complete your industry-specific checklist (below) and post a copy publicly, for customers and employees
As we work to lessen the impacts of COVID-19 on our community, it is critical that employees needing to self-isolate because of COVID-19 are encouraged to stay at home, with sick leave policies to support that. Please help us prevent further infection in your workplace. See additional information on government programs supporting sick leave and worker’s compensation for COVID-19.

Stage 3 – Higher-risk Workplaces
Adapt and reopen movie theaters, religious services, and more personal and hospitality services.
Stage 4 – End of Stay Home Order
