Bars, Breweries, Wineries Allowed To Reopen In Ventura County Under Certain Conditions

Bars, brewpubs, wineries, and other businesses licensed to sell alcohol for consumption on-site can reopen in Ventura County under specific conditions.  They had been ordered to shut down a few weeks ago due to the county’s spike in coronavirus cases.

Bars and brewpubs must keep their indoor operations closed, but can operate outdoors if alcohol consumption is part of outdoor, sit-down meals.

Ventura County’s wineries and wine tasting rooms can operate outdoors even if they don’t offer food. 

The Ventura County Public Health Department regulations say that only members of the same household can sit together.  People can’t stay more than 90 minutes.  And, all bars must close by 10 p.m.
