Revised Health Order

Mendocino County Health Officer Dr. Noemi Doohan issued a revised Shelter-In-Place (SIP) Order Thursday, May 28, 2020, reflecting the new Permissible Higher Risk Businesses and related activities. The major changes include:
- Places of worship, such as churches, mosques, temples, and synagogues may open for limited capacity in-person religious services and cultural ceremonies provided that Statewide Places of Worship Guidance is followed.
- Funeral Services expanded with strict adherence to the same limited capacity and other restrictions outlined in the Places of Worship Guidance.
- Hair salons and barbershops may open for limited haircut-related services and are required to follow statewide guidance and complete a local business self-certification process at wwww.mendocinocountybusiness.org prior to opening.
- In-person political protests are allowed with modifications and must adhere to safety measures identified by the State and outlined in the Health Officer’s Order.

The Health Officer has also expanded the very limited use of Shared Pools subject to the Order’s restrictions for pool-based physical therapy (as prescribed by a medical professional).
Mendocino County’s revised SIP goes in effect Thursday, May 28 at 11:59 p.m. and will be in place until June 12, 2020.

The Health Order and a summary of the major changes are available online at https://www.mendocinocounty.org/community/novel-coronavirus/health-order. The order is enforceable by imprisonment and/or fine thus we urge all residents to closely read the order and follow it.
