City of Woodland

300 First Street

May 8, 2020 - Curbside Retail, Manufacturing and Warehouse Operations Reopen

On May 7th, the Governor of California released guidance and checklists regarding the reopening of curbside retail, manufacturing and warehouse/logistics operations.  Curbside pick-up and delivery allows retailers to resume operations in a modified contactless format where customers can pre-order, pay for items and either pick up items outside the store or have them delivered to their home. All manufacturing, logistics, and warehouse industries may also resume operations. Businesses should follow established guidelines from the State available on the State’s website:

Yolo County has similarly updated its Shelter-in-Place order to allow all manufacturing, logistics and warehouse operations, as well as curbside pick-up and delivery for retail establishments to resume on May 8.

For more information, please read the full press release from the County:

All businesses permitted to resume operations must adhere to social distancing protocols.  The basic prevention practices and protocols include:

  • Creating a workplace specific plan, followed by employee training, that establishes best practices that provide a level of protection for both the employees and customers
  • Wearing a mask or face covering, as required by the Yolo County Face Covering requirement
  • Physical distancing to the maximum extent possible, including proper distancing between employees
  • Frequent handwashing and thorough cleaning and disinfecting, per CDC Guidance

More information is available on the County’s Roadmap to Recovery page:

“As more local businesses are reopening and changing their business models to reflect Yolo County’s Shelter in Place order, residents are encouraged to visit businesses’ websites, social media, or call them to learn about their new business practices and store hours. Over the coming weeks, we are hopeful that restrictions on businesses will continue to loosen up to better serve Woodland residents and businesses in our community.” Ken Hiatt, Interim Woodland City Manager.
