Current Stage

Kings County is now in later Stage 2, where retail (curbside and delivery), related logistics and manufacturing, childcare for those outside of the essential workforce, office workplaces (telework remains strongly encouraged), limited personal services, outdoor museums, and essential businesses can open with modifications.  Destination retail (retail stores), including shopping malls and swap meets; dine-in restaurants (other amenities, like bars or gaming areas, are not permitted in Stage 2), places of worship, hair salons and barbershops, and schools with modifications may open with a specific plan for modification.  Sectors not listed here do not fall under Stage 2 and are not allowed to open at this time.

As Kings County moves further into Stage 2 of the Resilience Roadmap, every business should take steps to reduce the risk of COVID-19 and create a safer environment for workers and customers. The link at the bottom of the page has guidelines and checklists for businesses to follow if they are permitted to open per county health rules.  Guidance for counties that have received State approval to move faster into Stage 2 is located on the State’s County Variance page.  Please note that guidance from the County of Kings may be superseded by the State of California. The goal is a safe environment for workers and customers.
