On Thursday, the City of Fresno announced that the ‘shelter in place’ order will be lifted on Tuesday May 26, 2020.
This includes the reopening of dine-in restaurants, as long as they self-certify online with the County.
Fair warning, you will notice some modifications upon arrival at dine-in restaurants. While masks will not be required when out in public, as soon as you step into a business, like your favorite restaurant, or government building they immediately become a requirement. The exception? If you are seated to eat.
Once retail stores and restaurants receive approval from the Fresno County Department of Public health and state, they will be allowed to open and resume business as they did before their closure…well kind of. These businesses will be held to social distancing protocols put together by Fresno.
As a group, Prieto Automotive stores, which include Fresno Mazda, Sanger Chevrolet Buick GMC, Sonora Ford, and Subaru of Sonora, are all open for business. This means service and showroom. You are no longer required to schedule an appointment to view a vehicle, just stop by. We have a full staff that is back and ready to answer any questions you have about any vehicle on our lots. Hours do vary per location, so don’t forget to check each website.
In addition, the COVID-19 enforcement duties for the city will be eliminated. This is of course unless there are fragrant evident violations by a business that presents an immediate danger.
