Reopening: Anaheim Businesses

What Anaheim businesses can open, reopen and how they operate is based on California's colored tier system and where Orange County falls within that system.

Orange County is in the red Tier 2, effective Sept. 8.

Tier 2 is the second most restrictive, though many businesses and organizations are allowed to operate, often with limited capacity or outdoors.

Some of the changes of Tier 2: 

  • Indoor nail salon services
  • Restaurant indoor dining at 25 percent capacity or no more than 100 people
  • Indoor gyms and fitness at 10 percent capacity
  • Movie theaters at 25 percent capacity
  • Indoor shopping centers and stores at 50 percent capacity

Below is a thorough list of what can and can't be open in Anaheim at each tier. It goes in sequence starting with Tier 1, followed by our current Tier 2.

Further down you'll find state operating guidelines as well as a reopening plan template you can create for your business and share with Anaheim.

It is critical Anaheim businesses follow guidelines to prevent the spread of coronavirus so we can move through reopening and avoid moving backward through tiers.

Guidelines for Open Businesses

Anaheim is looking for businesses to reopen at their own determination, at the right time and in accordance with California guidance.

Reopening businesses and those open now need to ensure they are following state guidelines for preventing the spread of coronavirus.

You can find a general summary of California guidelines just below followedchecklist grab by industry-specific guidance.

Reopening businesses need to post a checklist indicating they’ve addressed state guidelines for reopening. You’ll find links to checklists by industry below.

Beyond that, we also provide links to reopening guidelines from the federal Centers for Disease Control and from the Orange County Board of Supervisors.

For businesses, California’s guidelines are most important as they supersede or go farther than local and federal guidelines.

Getting Ready: Reopening Plan, Checklist

Businesses reopening need a reopening plan, worksite changes and a posted checklist.

To help businesses, we have a business reopening plan template that addresses state guidelines.

You are welcome to download this template and use it as a starting point for your reopening plan.

Once you’ve completed a reopening plan, you’ll need to post a reopening checklist at your business.

Ultimately, when businesses reopen comes down to California’s reopening stages and any additional Orange County guidance.

Anaheim’s role is to help businesses understand and meet state and county reopening guidelines and to prepare for reopening when the time is right for their business.

Your business can share reopening details and plans with Anaheim through an easy online form you can access here and just below.
