Good Afternoon,


During this time of ever changing moment to moment information, this is a clarification on the governor's update today.  Currently California is the Phase/Stage 2 early opening.  CAPA received an email regarding CAPA opening due to schools allowed to open in
Phase/Stage 2.  


"What’s in Early Stage 2

Later this week the state will release public health guidance for certain Stage 2 sectors including some retail, manufacturing, and logistics businesses, which will outline modifications that lower the risk of transmission. Businesses and employers in those sectors will be able to reopen as soon as Friday – if they can meet the guidelines provided by the state. Not all Stage 2 businesses will be able to open Friday with modifications. Some examples of businesses that can open with modifications include bookstores, clothing stores, florists and sporting goods stores.

Other Stage 2 sectors, such as offices and dine-in restaurants, will be part of a later Stage 2 opening. The announcement for Friday does not include offices, seated dining at restaurants, shopping malls or schools. As the Governor noted last week, the state is working with school districts and the California education community to determine how best and safely to reopen. That continues to be the case – this May 8 announcement does not move up this timeline.

While the state will be moving from Stage 1 to Stage 2, counties can choose to continue more restrictive measures in place based on their local conditions, and the state expects some counties to keep their more robust stay at home orders in place beyond May 8.

Regional Variation.

The Governor also announced today that while the state is moving into Stage 2 together, counties can move more quickly through Stage 2, if they attest that they meet the state’s readiness criteria. Counties must create and submit a readiness plan which the state will make publicly available."

In reading the edict, schools will be allowed to open in late Phase/Stage 2 which is not being determined at this time.  CAPA is also under the jurisdiction of the Monterey County Health Dept., Dr. Edward Moreno's edicts.


Please know I am watching and reading daily for updates and will let you all know when we are free to open under the guidelines of the County and State.  At this time, Monterey County is under shelter-in-place until May 31.


I trust this finds you and those you love safe and healthy.


Thank you,
