Yesterday Gov. Gavin Newsom and Secretary of the California Health and Human Services Dr. Mark Ghaly presented the guidelines for the second-phase plan for reopening businesses, including what business owners are required to do to get back to business beginning today.

But San Mateo County and five other Bay Area counties and the City of Berkeley are keeping the current shelter-in-place guidelines through at least May 31 despite the changes to the state’s order. The counties and Berkeley will continue to prohibit curbside pick-up at non-essential, non-outdoor businesses.
