San Diego County New Update on What’s Allowed, Not Allowed in Restaurants and Stores – May 21, 2020

Restaurants and stores can now open to serve customers in person. However, they must follow specific guidelines to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Guidelines for dine-in restaurants are:

  • Temperature/symptom screening for employees daily
  • Employees with symptoms are not allowed to work
  • All tables need to be six feet apart or have barriers separating them
  • Signs need to be posted reminding customers to social distance
  • Employees must wear facial coverings
  • Customers must wear facial coverings except when seated
  • No self-service such as buffets, salad bars, soda machines, etc.
  • Encourage reservations
  • Expand outdoor seating

Before reopening, food businesses must fill and post the County Restaurant Operating Protocol. Additional guidance, posters and information for a safe reopening can be found on the page for restaurant operators website.

The County Department of Environmental Health continues conducting food safety status verifications to ensure compliance with the California Retail Food Code and provide guidance and education on the Health Officer Orders.

Retail shopping

Customers are allowed in stores, including malls, with the following requirements:

  • Post signs saying no employees or customers with COVID-19 symptoms should enter
  • Temperature/symptom screening for employees daily
  • Employees and customers must wear facial coverings
  • Limit number of customers to maintain six feet of distance

Businesses that have not done so already need to complete a Safe Reopening Plan, post it at their entrance and discuss with their employees. Retail businesses that have been providing curbside or front-door pick-up and will now be allowing customers indoors must update their plan.

The public or employees should not enter any business if they have symptoms of COVID-19, which include cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fever, chills, muscle pain, sore throat, or a new loss of taste or smell.

The plan was adopted because the County meets all the current readiness criteria and can safely move into an accelerated reopening.

As more places open to the public, it’s important for people to continue taking precautions to avoid getting and spreading COVID-19.

“Dining out and shopping must be done safely as crowded places increase the risk of exposure to COVID-19,” Wooten said. “People should continue wearing a face covering in public, maintain their distance from others, avoid touching their face and wash their hands frequently.”

While some San Diegans would like for more businesses to reopen and other activities to occur, the State has yet to allow the following to open:

  • Hotels, Airbnb
  • Gyms, fitness centers
  • Hair, nail salons
  • Beach parking lots
  • Sitting or lying down on the beach
  • Religious services, except funerals performed with social distancing

COVID-19 Testing, Cases and Deaths


  • 4,722 tests were reported to the County May 20, and 175 or 4% were positive.
  • 3.7% was yesterday’s 14-day, rolling average percentage of positive tests.


  • 175 new cases were reported for a San Diego County total of 6,315.
  • 1,183 or 18.7% of the total cases have required hospitalization.
  • 354 or 5.6% of all cases had to be placed in intensive care.


  • 11 more COVID-19 deaths were reported today, bringing the region’s total to 241.
  • Seven women and four men died, and their ages ranged from 51 to 100 years.
  • All but one had underlying medical conditions.

The number of active outbreaks, deaths and cases at nursing homes and other congregate living facilities are:

  • 73 active outbreaks, 50 at congregate living facilities and 23 in community settings.
  • 1,391 cases, including 119 deaths in congregate living facilities.
  • 299 cases, including five deaths in community settings.

An interactive dashboard with several COVID-19 indicators is being updated daily. For more information, visit

Alpine Jazzercise Expanding Space & Preparing for Reopening in the Future

Watch the 10 News interview with owner Karen Walters HERE!

Hello my Friends,
Thank you to each and every one of you for being so Supportive and Patient as we have been traveling down this historical, uncharted, and challenging event in our lives. I hope you ALL know how much you have been missed by the entire Alpine crew!

We do have some VERY EXCITING NEWS to share with you all. Are you ready? I think all of us could use some good news about now!!!!!! Our studio is currently under construction! We are expanding our space, so upon your return to the studio we will be occupying both suites of the building. I am so incredibly excited! ☺ Our top priority and goal at Alpine Jazzercise is to provide you with a healthy, safe and
sanitized workout environment.

The center wall is down, the office was removed, and a stage will be going in woohoo! Of course it goes without saying that our beautiful hardwood flooring will be wall to wall for a ton of dancing space. When you return to the studio (which I will address in a moment) to workout in person with all your favorite people and friends, we WILL BE PROVIDING A SAFE SOCIAL DISTANCE from one another. (All these safety precautions will not be forever) The CDC is temporarily mandating that ALL GYM EQUIPMENT be removed from fitness studios/gyms until further notice. This will keep our studio Germ/Virus Free. So for our studio, No weights and mats will be lent out. Please order yourself a set of weights on Amazon to bring with you to class. Also, if you are in need of a mat, like the ones we were buying at Costco, I can pick one up for you. Call or text me if you are interested.

I do not know about ALL of you but I’m missing you all like crazy. I’m missing our full dance floors, the contagious electricity, positive energy, and seeing all your sweaty smiles and getting our endorphins all pumped up together. I kind of hoped that your home workouts were giving you that feeling …….at least on a smaller scale temporarily. Let’s be honest, nothing can EVER REPLACE real life human contact you get from one of our classes in our studio! You know what I mean, when instructor can Magically grab ahold of your soul and push you, motivate you, inspire you to reach your highest level of physical ability that even you were not aware you had! There are no words that can describe it and how amazing we all feel after class!

Thank you all for sticking with us and supporting us so that we can have a place to return to after this crazy unprecedented time in ALL of our lives. Alpine Jazzercise will come back stronger one day at a time.
This is only temporary – This will NOT last forever. Which now brings me to a tentative forecast, not a hard date, that we might be given the
“Green Light ” to resume business on May 19th. This particular date has been in many of the CDC and the Governor’s projected announcements. Please do not hold us to this date. We will email you a definite confirmed opening date as soon as we know. It will also be posted on our business FB page when we can legally open our doors!

I would greatly appreciate it if you all would pleaseeeee connect and like our page. The more customers that like our page the more exposure there will be for our business. This is super essential in trying to build our little Jazzercise Studio here in Alpine. There is a wealth of important announcements and updates. Particularly with this Coronavirus, business decisions and actions involving the
Governor, CDC, and our President as you know are continually evolving and changing on a daily basis.

There is a REALLY SPECIAL message that I posted on our FB page. I’d love nothing more than for every one of our customers to see it. It is full of Love! When we are all back together again, we will plan one heck of a Dance Party to Celebrate Us! Be the light in your home with your loved ones because a positive smile is also very contagious! Even with a mask on you CAN smile with your eyes

Please contact us with any questions or concerns at 619-922-9313 we are here for you. YOU ARE ESSENTIAL TO US everyday, not just during a pandemic. From the bottom of my heart, thank you again for your support. I love and miss you all!

Alpine Union School District Offers Students Free Grab and Go Meals

The Alpine Union School District is happy to provide students across the county who are 18 years and younger with free meals for pick up during school closures. The district recognizes that it is a stressful time for many families in the community.

Through this service, the AUSD helps to alleviate some of the stress and help the community. The district offers meals once a week on Mondays. Families can pick up the meals at Boulder Oaks Elementary School between 11-12. Meals are provided for any students 18 years old or younger and up to five kids per car. Each Monday, a week’s worth of meals are handed out in a drive-thru system. Parents pull up to the curb and open their trunk or hatch while remaining in the car. This allows the Alpine Union staff to practice social distancing while loading food into the cars. The whole process takes less than a minute, allowing staff to provide food for large amounts of students quickly.

To take advantage of this opportunity, parents or guardians just need to bring and fill out a waiver at the drive-thru. The Alpine Union staff is working hard to provide students and families with support and encouragement. In the past few weeks, the Alpine Union School District staff has been able to provide over 3,000 meals for students.

To learn more about programs in the Alpine Union School District, and stay up to date on current happenings, visit the district website!
