Update on Closures/Reopenings

The City of Claremont continues to assess the impacts of COVID-19 in consultation with Los Angeles County Public Health Officials and our local partners. The City is following and implementing guidelines from the State of California, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health. 

Regional Safer at Home Order 

With the ICS capacity dropping below 15% in the Southern California Region, LA is now under the State's Safer-at-Home order until further notice 

More Info:


The Regional Stay Home Order instructs Californians to stay at home as much as possible and to stop mixing between households that can lead to COVID-19 spread. It allows access to critical services and allows outdoor activities to preserve Californians’ physical and mental health. The Regional Stay Home Order will help stop the surge and prevent overwhelming regional ICU capacity. 

Under the order, the following sectors are allowed to remain open with safety precautions: 

  • Critical infrastructure (when remote option is not possible)

  • Schools

  • Non-urgent medical and dental care

  • Child care and pre-K


The following sectors will have additional modifications in addition to 100% masking and physical distancing:

  • Outdoor recreational facilities: Allow outdoor operation only for the purpose of facilitating physically distanced personal health and wellness through outdoor exercise, without any food, drink or alcohol sales. Additionally, overnight stays at campgrounds will not be permitted.

  • Retail: Allow indoor operation at 20% capacity, and 35% of capacity for standalone grocery stores, with entrance metering and no eating or drinking in the stores. Additionally, special hours should be instituted for seniors and others with chronic conditions or compromised immune systems. 

  • Shopping centers: Allow indoor access at 20% capacity with entrance metering and no eating or drinking in the stores. Additionally, special hours should be instituted for seniors and others with chronic conditions or compromised immune systems.

  • Hotels and lodging: Allow for COVID-19 mitigation and containment measures, treatment measures, provide accommodation for essential workers, or providing housing solutions, including measures to protect homeless populations.

  • Restaurants: Allow only for take out or delivery.

  • Offices: Allow remote only except for critical infrastructure sectors where remote working is not possible. 

  • Places of Worship: Permitted indoors and outdoors, provided that strict physical distancing is followed, which requires a minimum of six feet between persons from different households.

  • Political expression: Allow outdoor activities only.

  • Entertainment production: Industries, studios, and other related establishments such as establishments that provide content for professional broadcast can operate without live audiences.


In any region that triggers a Regional Stay Home Order because it drops below 15% ICU capacity all operations in the following sectors must be closed (except to the extent that their operations fall within critical infrastructure):

  • Indoor playgrounds (park playgrounds are open)

  • Hair salons and barbershops

  • Personal care services

  • Museums, zoos, and aquariums

  • Movie theaters (except drive-in)

  • Wineries, bars, breweries, and distilleries

  • Family entertainment centers

  • Cardrooms and satellite wagering

  • Limited services

  • Live audience sports

  • Amusement parks

State Guidelines for Face Cover

On Thursday, June 18, Governor Gavin Newsom ordered all Californians to wear face coverings while in public or high-risk settings, including when shopping, taking public transit, or seeking medical care. The state mandate exempts people with a medical, mental health, or developmental disability that prevents them from wearing a face covering. Restaurant customers are also exempt when eating and drinking, as are residents recreating outdoors as long as they are able to socially distance from others. Face coverings also are not required for the hearing impaired, or those communicating with them, or for workers whose health may be put at risk or may need to temporarily remove a mask to perform a task or service.


Masks must be worn by Californians in their workplace, when serving customers or any member of the public, by all food service workers, when working or walking through hallways and parking facilities, and when riding on elevators, according to the order. People who drive buses, taxis, ride-hailing vehicles or any other service that accepts passengers also must wear masks. To view the new guidelines, please click this link.
