Local health jurisdictions that meet the criteria set forth by the California Department of Public Health and follow the process in the county guidance may move further ahead in Stage 2 of the resilience roadmap.
If a county decides to pursue a variance to move further into Stage 2, the local public health officer must:
- Notify the California Department of Public Health (CDPH).
- Certify through submission of a written attestation to CDPH that the county has met the readiness criteria (outlined below), including guidance to be issued by the county and detailed plans, and that the county is designed to mitigate the spread of COVID-19.
A list of counties that have met the criteria is available here.
