The State has instituted the Blueprint for a Safer Economy that establishes a revised criteria for loosening and tightening restrictions. This criteria is based on the average number of COVID-19 cases and positivity rates.
On November 16, 2020, the State moved Orange County from the Red Tier (Substantial) to the more restrictive Purple Tier (Widespread). Several higher risk businesses such as restaurants and gyms may only operate outdoors, and certain businesses may continue operating indoors at reduced capacity. Learn more about this Tier and track the County’s progress through each tier by visiting HBready.com/reopen. This site provides guidance on the types of businesses and facilities that may reopen.
In light of these closures, we are offering the Surf City Open Air Program to allow businesses to temporarily operate outdoors. This is an expedited, no-fee permit with a turnaround time of one week. To apply, click here.
