Los Alamitos issues press release as Orange County moves back into purple tier

The sustainability of our community businesses remains a priority and the City of Los Alamitos is dedicated to assisting businesses during these unprecedented times. The County of Orange has now moved from the red “substantial” tier to the purple “widespread” tier in the State of California’s “Blueprint for a Safer Economy” re-opening plan. The purple tier is the most restrictive tier in the State’s color-coded, four-tier system aimed at gradually re-opening business sectors safely.

Effective immediately, the following businesses, including those in Los Alamitos, must modify operations to comply with the purple tier restrictions:

  • Restaurants
    May open outdoor only with modifications
  • Places of Worship
    May open outdoor only with modifications
  • Shopping Centers
    Indoor capacity must be limited to 25 percent for shopping malls, destination shopping centers, and swap meets
    Common areas are closed
    Closed food courts
  • Retail
    Retail capacity must be limited to 25 percent
    Grocery stores capacity may remain limited to 50 percent
  • Hair Salons and Barbershops
    May reopen indoors with modifications
  • Personal Care Services (e.g., nail salons, body waxing, tattoo parlors, piercing studios, skin care and cosmetology, massage services)
    May reopen indoors with modifications
  • Gym and Fitness Facilities
    May open outdoor only with modifications
  • Movie Theaters
    May open outdoor only with modifications

In efforts to assist local businesses that have been affected by the current restrictions placed on indoor operations, the Los Alamitos City Council has approved and waived fees for Temporary Outside Business Operations. If you are a business that is interested in operating outdoors, an application must be submitted to the Planning Division for approval prior to conducting outdoor operations. The application can be found on the City’s website, and can be emailed to Associate Planner Tom Oliver at [email protected].

The complete list is available on the County of Orange website; industry reopening guidelines can be found ont he State’s Blueprint for a Safer Economy webpage. For information regarding schools and classrooms reopening, contact the Los Alamitos School District.

  1. All you have to do is invite Gov Newsom to your business and then everyone can go without a mask and stay close together. I ignore all of this (mask, distancing, etc) and just live my life. This virus has a 98%+ survival rate. Stop being sheeple!
