Today at Noon: Governor Newsom to Visit Small Business in Sacramento as State Moves into Stage 2 Reopening

SACRAMENTO — As the state moves into Stage 2 of modifying the stay at home order, Governor Gavin Newsom will meet with a small business owner in Sacramento today to discuss how businesses are adapting to reopen while continuing to preserve public health.

The Governor yesterday released guidance to help drive reopening – with modifications – for some sectors including retail, manufacturing and logistics, after announcing earlier this week that based on the state’s progress in meeting key metrics, the state will move to gradually reopen some lower-risk businesses and public spaces on Friday.
