COVID-19: State issues updated guidance for restaurants, bars, and wineries
–Last week, the California Office of Emergency Services issued updated guidance for operating restaurants, bars, and wineries amid the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.
The new guidance separates instructions for restaurants, wineries, and bars into three different documents. It includes new information about entertainment, performances, and performers in these settings and references forthcoming live performances guidance.
It adds guidance on ventilation. It includes a revised section on face coverings and recommends consideration for employers to provide a second barrier, such as a face shield or safety goggles, to workers who consistently come within six feet of customers and co-workers. The new guidance includes physical distancing between tables measuring from the backs of the chairs.
In addition, the state added a guidance document on defining an outdoor setting as it relates to restaurants, bars, and wineries: Use of Temporary Structures for Outdoor Business Operations.
