The state has not allowed counties to lift shelter in place orders. Certain high-risk businesses and activities are still not allowed by the state. Indoor gatherings are still prohibited, with limited exceptions. As the state recognizes, lifting too many restrictions too soon could easily lead to a large surge in cases and result in avoidable hospitalizations and deaths, and it may lead to longer-term economic harms. Therefore, both the state and Sonoma County have reopened in stages.
