Health Order Amendment

Amended Health Officer Ordered Issued

Sonoma County’s Health Officer, Dr. Sundari Mase, today (9/23) issued an amended health order to align the existing local health order with the state's revised framework for reopening. The amendment to the Stay Well Sonoma County Health Order (C19-15), which was originally adopted in June, allows local businesses and activities to reopen as soon as possible under the state's new framework.

With today’s amendment, businesses will not need to wait for future local amendments to reopen as Sonoma County moves to new tiers within the state’s color coded tier system.

The amendment does not change any of the requirements for businesses and individuals under the existing health order that are designed to reduce transmission of COVID-19. One immediate change resulting from the amendment is an increase to the childcare group limit from 12 individuals to 16, consistent with the state's cohort size limit. The amended health order also allows in-person student instruction at higher educational institutions when the county enters the appropriate tier, consistent with state guidance.
