California Guidance for Face Coverings

Effective June 8, a face covering must be worn when outside and when anyone else other than just members of their Social Bubble is within 30 feet (10 yards). Employees must wear a face covering when in the workplace except when in a private space or area not regularly used by others. They must wear a face covering when preparing food or other items for sale or distribution to people who are not members of their household or living unit. Businesses are also required to remind customers or visitors to wear face coverings while inside or waiting in line to enter their business. See Site Specific Protection Plan (Appendix A)

Pleasanton businesses are encouraged to post a No Mask, No Service sign to remind customers that face coverings are required at their establishment. Request a sign HERE or click on the image to download a PDF to print.

Safely Making California - PPE Resources

California Manufacturers & Technology Association (CMTA), Autodesk, and the State of California have created Safely Making California Marketplace to help fill the critical gap for all sectors during the COVID-19 pandemic. The program connects CMTA member manufacturers and other manufacturers to employers that need to purchase non-medical grade PPE. See website for details and resources.


Signs for Essential Businesses Available!

The City has created Open for Business signs to assist in identifying businesses that are open during the Shelter in Place Order. This will allow residents to easily spot the green signs in windows throughout town, and instantly know which businesses are there to provide them with essential needs during this time.


NEW Open for Business Listing 

 

To support Pleasanton businesses that are open during the Shelter in Place Order, the City has partnered with Bludot to create an interactive business listing with mapping features.

See the listing HERE or click OPEN FOR BUSINESS image above.

The listing includes essential businesses, identified in the County Health Order, that are open during the Shelter in -Place Order including restaurants offering take-out and delivery and retail for curbside pick-up. The listing also includes businesses that were required to close their doors due to the Shelter in Place Order and are now providing online orders for delivery or virtual services such as classes. Those businesses are located under the category, Retail/Online Non-essential. Home-based businesses are not included in the listing.

Our local businesses need your support now more than ever. As restaurants may alter their operations, it is strongly recommended that you call the restaurant directly. If you are refraining from restaurant take-out during the Shelter in Place Order or would like to support a restaurant or business listed, please consider purchasing a gift card to support now and use later. 

Are you an essential business or a business offering online ordering, curbside pick-up, or virtual services and don't see your business listed? You can add your business by following these steps:

1. Visit Pleasanton's OPEN FOR BUSINESS listing.

2. Click the +List My Business button in the upper right-hand corner.

3. Complete the following screen with your business information. Once you hit SUBMIT, your information will be reviewed to meet the criteria to be listed before being added (must be located in Pleasanton and an essential business or business that closed physical storefront and now providing online orders or virtual classes).
