State of California Blueprint for a Safer Economy

En Español

SoCo-Launch-scale-purple-400On August 31, 2020, the State of California implemented a Color Tier System to help track the loosening and tightening of restrictions by County. Counties are assigned to a Color Tier by COVID-19 risk level. Sonoma County is in the Purple Tier for Widespread." The following has changed:

  • Hair salons/barber shops and nail salons can operate indoors with modification
  • Indoor shopping malls may open at a maximum 25% capacity. Food courts and common areas remain close
  • Retail stores (clothing, books, jewelry, etc.) may open at a maximum 25% capacity with modification
  • Grocery stores may open at a maximum 50% capacity with modifications


Locate the status of State allowed industry activity by County on the State's COVID-19 website. For County allowed industry activity go to "What's Open in Sonoma County." For businesses located in an incorporated city, check with city for compliance guidelines and permits needed for reopening and expanding services. 

For information on State requirements for advancing counties to the next tier, visit California Department of Public Health Tier Frame work website.
