Today, the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (“Public Health”) announced that it anticipates that the County—including the City of Culver City—can move to the next stage of COVID-19 recovery as soon as this Friday, May 8th. The types of businesses and facilities that we expect to be able to open in Culver City on Friday include:
For curbside pickup only, with adherence to distancing and infection control protocols:
sporting goods stores
Car dealership showrooms
Open for sales with adherence to distancing and infection control protocols
Physical distancing and infection control protocols will need to be adhered to, and cloth face coverings will need to be worn. Other non-essential businesses not included on the list above must continue to follow the regulations in the City of Culver City’s “Safer at Home” Order.
We anticipate that Public Health will make a final announcement today, Thursday, May 7th. More details will be available after that announcement, including additional guidelines for re-opening.
The City of Culver City’s recovery and re-opening is being done in coordination with Public Health. Public Health has issued a five-stage roadmap to recovery that describes a phased approach to relaxing its “Safer at Home Order” and a reopening process for certain business sectors. Public Health and the City of Culver City are currently in Stage One of the Safer at Home recovery stages. We anticipate that Stage Two will begin on Friday, May 8th.
Public Health also announced today that later next week additional restrictions are anticipated to be lifted, including many retailers, manufacturers, and other recreational facilities. The next three stages include the potential opening in phases of higher-risk businesses like movie theaters, schools, colleges and universities, followed by conventions and spectator events, to finally normal operations. Each sector will have safe reopening protocols that must be adhered to.
If you have questions, please email the City or call (310) 253-6890.
