In a Tuesday press conference, California Gavin Newsom laid out the 4-step plan for how and when the state will re-open with a “phased and thoughtful approach.”

The easing of restrictions will take place in four distinct stages and “we are weeks, not months away” from the next step of changes if the spread of COVID-19 continues to decline

Stages for Modifying “Stay at Home” Order

  • Stage 1 – Where we are now – “essential” activities only
  • Stage 2 – (“within weeks”) Lower risk workspaces – retail (curbside pickup), manufacturing, offices, more public spaces
  • Stage 3 – Higher risk envirnoments with adaptations and limits on size of gatherings – personal care (hair and nail salons, gyms), entertainment venues (movie theaters, sports without live audiences), in-person religious services (churches, weddings)
  • Stage 4 – (“months away”) End of Stay-at-Home Order – Re-open highest risk venues – concerts, convention centers, live sports with audiences. Once therapeutics have been developed.
