On August 28, 2020, the State released its Blueprint for a Safer Economy (“Blueprint”), which allows shopping malls and destination shopping centers in Santa Clara County to conduct limited indoor operations as of August 31, 2020. Under the Blueprint, the County is in Tier One (purple). Accordingly, shopping malls and destination shopping centers may open for indoor operations, but only if:
1. Indoor capacity is restricted to 25%; and
2. All indoor common areas and food court areas are closed.
See the State’s Blueprint here (https://covid19.ca.gov/safer-economy/).
All operations of these businesses (both outdoor and limited indoor) are subject to the Santa Clara County Health Officer Order issued July 2, 2020 and any applicable State guidance.
