Tuolumne County Shelter In Place

Tuolumne County Public Health has updated its local order to align with California’s announcement to allow hair salons, barber shops and places of worship to reopen.


Limited services, such as haircuts and color services, will be offered at salons and barbershops. Churches are allowed to house up to a maximum of 100 people. Newly reopened businesses will have to follow industry-specific guidelines, complete and post a state checklist where it is available for people to review.

In addition to this update, earlier this week Tuolumne County Health officials announced that since last week, a total of 904 tests had been taken. The tests revealed 900 negative results. Out of those four positive test results, 0 were hospitalized, 2 were in isolation and 2 recovered.

If you plan on attending a place of worship here are some additional recommendations from the health department..

  • Singing is a high-risk activity for disease transmission, so they urge people to strictly maintain physical distance to prevent the spread of the virus.
  • People should limit the size of gathering and conduct gatherings outdoors.
  • Facilities are encouraged to consider increasing the number of services they offer so that people can attend in smaller numbers.
  • Facilities should be ready to help with contact tracing investigations, should a case be identified. To assist with this, each facility should maintain sign-in documentation with contact information.
