City (COVID-19) Information Page
The State is currently in Stage 2 of the COVID-19 reopening process called the Resilience Roadmap. The State determines when and how each county may reopen based on a county’s ability to meet the State’s public health criteria. Businesses in Stage 2 are considered to be lower risk workplaces and we are in the early stages of Stage 2 statewide. On May 20, the California Department of Public Health approved SLO County’s attestation moving the County fully into Stage 2 which includes dine-in restaurants and in-person retail. Businesses must review the public health guidance for their respective industry sector and complete a Self-Certification Form prior to reopening.

Our progress in achieving key public health metrics will continue to allow a gradual re-opening of California’s economy. The public health metrics continue to trend in a positive direction including number of new cases per day, number of hospitalizations, and number of cases recovered which indicates the county’s progress in “flattening the curve” through the shelter-at-home order and physical distance requirements
On Monday, June 1st at the City Council Meeting the City Council adopted an Urgency Face Covering Ordinance that requires three thing for businesses to carry out: 1) post signage with the CDC recommendation about use of face coverings (see below), 2) provide face coverings to employees, and 3) require employees to wear them if they can’t maintain physical distance from customers. The ordinance does not require customer usage but businesses can require this as a business decision.
Grover Beach is a strong and resilient community and we have taken numerous actions to protect our community and minimize the spread of COVID-19.

We need to work together as one community to help one another get through this situation. The City of Grover Beach is committed to serving our community and continue providing important services while ensuring public health and safety.
