The City of Chula Vista is coordinating with the County of San Diego Health and Human Services Agency/Public Health Services department and other agencies to monitor and reduce the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). The World Health Organization has declared the outbreak a global pandemic. The City has proclaimed a local emergency and direction is provided in the Local Emergency Order to ensure the safety of City employees and the communities we serve.

While positive cases continue in the community, public health officials are encouraged that there is not a spike in cases following the further opening of businesses and activities. But we must be vigilant and keep following current public health guidelines: wear a face covering, keep your distance, wash your hands, and expect screening for symptoms in some settings.
Effective today, City tennis courts are now open for single play or household play (members of the same household.) Household members in groups of 2, 3 or 4 may play on the tennis courts. Players must not share equipment. Park Rangers are monitoring parks to ensure adherence to public health orders: wear a face covering when entering/exiting parks and maintain social distance. It is advised to minimize touching of surfaces and use hand sanitizer or wash your hands after play. Note: because of social distancing requirements, basketball courts are not open at this time.
The State has approved the County of San Diego to move further into the Stage 2 reopening, allowing for in-store shopping and onsite dining and the beginning of the Stage 3 reopening allowing for the reopening of hair salons and barber shops. In order to reopen, Chula Vista businesses have to complete and submit an online Social Distancing and Sanitation Protocol Permit. More details can be found on the state website for hair salons and barber shops.
Any beauty services that require touching a client's face, including waxing, threading, shaving, facials and eyelash services, are not yet allowed to reopen and this will be a later part of Stage 3. If you do go out to dine at your favorite Chula Vista restaurant or to get a long awaited haircut, remember that face coverings are still required to slow the spread of COVID-19.
