BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. – Butte County Public Health announced Thursday morning that it is working with town and city managers to allow for temporary indoor operations of restaurants due to local impacts from wildfires.

“The purpose of this temporary emergency measure is to help alleviate the adverse effects of the wildfire-related evacuations and severe outdoor air quality,” BCPH said. “Particulate matter in the air from wildfire smoke poses respiratory and cardiovascular hazards to citizens.”

According to public health, local jurisdictions in Butte County that choose to allow restaurants to temporarily open indoors must adhere to the following COVID-19 measures:

  • May only serve at 25% of their maximum capacity
  • Tables must be spaced a minimum of 6’ apart
  • All staff must wear a face covering at all times
  • Customers must wear a face covering while moving through the restaurant, until they are seated

Once the air quality has improved, restaurant operations will be required to resume outdoor operations only, per the State guidelines.
