In light of the growing number of COVID-19 cases in Santa Clara County and Gov. Gavin Newsom’s shelter-in-place order, San Jose city officials are providing clarity about which businesses can remain open. The San Jose Police department has begun outreach to city businesses through its Health Compliance Units.
