Yesterday, Supervisors voted unanimously to adopt a framework to reopen businesses in a safe manner, with Supervisor Jacob sending a letter to Gov. Gavin Newsom ask for the county to have “total local control” over reopening decision. It is unclear whether the Governor will grant such broad discretion. The County has provided a template for businesses preparing to reopen to review, but it may be updated depending on direction from the state.
