The County moved forward with Stage 2 of the reopening on May 8, 2020 and has amended its order several times since then. “Our community has worked so hard to social distance and to slow the spread of COVID-19 in our County. As we move further into Stage 2, we must do so with caution. We must continue to practice social distancing and businesses must make modifications needed to lower the risk of COVID-19 exposure. This will help keep our numbers low so we can continue to move forward,” said Public Health Officer Doctor Robert Levin.

County of Ventura Public Health Officer, Doctor Robert Levin, has announced the extension and modification of the Stay Well At Home Order. The Order shall be in effect until 11:59 pm on May 15, 2020.
“It’s understandable that our community members want to get back to work and return to normal life as quickly as possible,” said Levin. “The best path forward is a cautious one —a path that proceeds gradually, carefully, and incrementally. A path that relies on science and facts to determine each step forward. The data is looking good, thanks to the diligence of our community members in following these Orders, but we must be cautious in how we move forward. We must continue to save lives and stop the spread of COVID-19. Community members must continue to practice social distancing.” The extended order is in line with State of California directives.
