Napa County – Orange “Moderate” Tier


California has a blueprint for reducing COVID-19 in the state with revised criteria for loosening and tightening restrictions on activities. Every county in California is assigned to a tier based on its test positivity and adjusted case rate for tier assignment. Additionally, a health equity metric took effect on October 6, 2020. In order to advance to the next less restrictive tier, each county will need to meet an equity metric or demonstrate targeted investments to eliminate disparities in levels of COVID-19 transmission, depending on its size. The California Health Equity Metric is designed to help guide counties in their continuing efforts to reduce COVID-19 cases in all communities and requires more intensive efforts to prevent and mitigate the spread of COVID-19 among Californians who have been disproportionately impacted by this pandemic.

      Suggested Talking Points for Guests and Employees

      It is important to manage expectations and be transparent about the modified guest experience, while continuing to provide warm hospitality.

      • Napa Valley’s tourism businesses are proud to be responsibly reopening, adhering to and exceeding industry best practices for safety, cleanliness and hygiene to protect visitors, employees and community members.
      • Napa Valley’s rural, agricultural setting and spacious landscapes naturally allow for a socially distanced experience while still enjoying all that Napa Valley has to offer.
      • The California Department of Health published additional industry sector guidelines, allowing Napa County to open hotels, wineries, and tasting rooms, in addition to restaurants and retail shops.
      • Not all businesses are open. Make and/or confirm reservations directly, as individual businesses will open on their own timeline.
      • All orders are subject to public health conditions and may be revised at any time.
      • Social distancing, indoor mask use, limited occupancies, advanced reservations, and other health protocols are required by the Napa County Public Health Officer.
      • Napa Valley is committed to the highest safety standards by going above and beyond mandated requirements in order to protect the health and welfare of employees, guests, and our community while providing world-class hospitality.
        • *When asked, be prepared to provide examples of newly established health & safety standards to protect the health & safety of both guests and employees. For example:
          • Sanitizer stations are located in all public spaces; and guest areas are fully sanitized with UV light sterilizers prior to each guest arrival and after each guest departure.
          • All guest contact points – including restrooms; countertops; chairs; tables; and door handles are sanitized on an on-going basis using CDS/OSHA approved cleaning supplies.
          • Employees will receive temperature checks before each shift and wear face coverings/protection at all times.
          • All guest seating will be outdoors and include appropriate social distancing practices.
