WATCH: Residents Urged to Follow Public Health Orders Memorial Day Weekend

San Diego County officials are reminding residents to practice social distancing, avoid crowded places and cover their face when they leave their home.

“We have made great progress in flattening the curve of COVID-19, but the local health emergency is not over yet,” said Wilma J. Wooten, M.D., M.P.H., County public health officer. “Local metrics are trending in the right direction and we urge San Diegans to continue to do their part so the County can proceed with its thoughtful and calculated process of reopening businesses and other activities.”

The state recently approved the County’s request to allow in-person dining at restaurants and in-store retail shopping. While restaurants can open for dine-in services, they must follow the guidance outlined in the public health order. Many retail shops and shopping malls have started to open and all public health orders are apply at those locations. Beaches and parks are open but there are restrictions on gatherings and some activities.

San Diego Police and the Sheriff's Department are enforcing orders and those who violate them may be cited with a misdemeanor.
