State rejects Santa Clara County’s plans to reopen more businesses on July 13

Last week, Santa Clara County’s Public Health Officer Dr. Sara Cody issued a new risk-reduction order to allow businesses like nail and hair salons and gyms to reopen. Cody also made clear the State would need to approve their variance application in order for this new order to go into effect. 

However, over 4th of July weekend, the State rejected the variance application. 

“We are still in conversations and discussions with the state about that application, but we wanted to make sure people knew that that had happened and that we will continue to keep people informed about the next steps,” said Santa Clara County’s Public Information Officer David Campos in the Public Health Department livestream today.

Another item mentioned in today’s livestream: Per the County’s COVID-19 dashboard, the case number has jumped from just 4,750 to 5,273 in the last several days. This means that since July 2, there has been an increase of 523 COVID-19 cases in Santa Clara County.
