Trinity County Health Officer Dr. David Herfindahl has relaxed restrictions on restaurants in Trinity County to allow for seated dining-in with restrictions designed to protect workers and customers from the spread of COVID-19.

Restaurants are required to submit a COVID-19 plan to Trinity County Environmental Health and receive a certificate of compliance to resume dining in services. The Health Officer’s order including required safety and social distancing measures may be viewed online at

Effective Friday, May 22, the new order lifts prior restrictions limiting restaurants to takeout and curbside services only. Dine-in restaurants are also allowed to serve alcohol with a meal, but bars are not yet allowed to reopen.
