Here is Gov. Newsom’s 4-part plan to reopen California from
coronavirus shutdown 1

California Gov. Gavin Newsom unveiled his plan Tuesday to move the state out of its current stay-at-home order and return to normal.

On the same day Newsom said schools may open in July, the governor’s office has laid out a general four-stage plan to modify the order until eventually the public is able to move about and congregate like it did before the coronavirus crisis.

Below is a breakdown of the plan, starting with the current, most restrictive stage:

Stage 1: Safety and preparedness

  • The state will build up testing, tracing, PPE and hospital capacity
  • Prioritize safety for workers and customers in essential workplaces
  • Prepare safety guidelines for expanded workforce, broken down by industries

Stage 2: Lower-risk workplaces

  • Gradually open some lower-risk businesses and workplaces, adapted for social distancing
    • Curbside pickup for retail businesses
    • Reopen manufacturing businesses
    • Office workers may return if telework is not possible
    • Increase access to public spaces

Stage 3: Higher-risk workplaces

  • Use restrictions on gathering sizes and other limits to reopen higher-risk workplaces
    • Salons and gyms reopen with restrictions
    • Movie theaters and sports (without live audiences)
    • Religious services return to in-person settings

Stage 4: End of stay-at-home order

  • The highest-risk environments will be reopened once appropriate treatments are developed
    • Live sporting events with fans
    • Concerts and festivals
    • Conventions

If social distancing pushing down the number of new cases, Newsom says the second stage could come in a matter of weeks.

Stage 3 is months away, and the final stage of reopening fully is contingent on the development of treatment, meaning it is a matter of several months, maybe more than a year.
