State Resilience Roadmap and Business Information

In Ripon, we are required to follow both the State and County Stay at Home Orders, which have been in place since March 19, 2020.  These orders have been modified and updated based on the State of California Resilience Roadmap, which allows gradual reopening in four stages by county, based on key factors and thresholds established by Governor Newsom:

  • Stage 1 - Safety & Preparedness
  • Stage 2 - Lower-risk Workplaces
  • Stage 3 - Higher-risk Workplaces
  • Stage 4 - End of Stay at Home Order

San Joaquin County Public Health has set up a dashboard to track the progress of San Joaquin County meeting the state defined factors and thresholds
