Whenever the stay-at-home orders are lifted, it won't be business as usual, the governor said at his daily press briefing.

"Normal it will not be, at least until we have herd immunity and we have a vaccine," Newsom said.

Dining out will look a lot different
When restaurants are allowed to reopen, they won't look the same as they did before the pandemic.

"You may be having dinner with a waiter wearing gloves, maybe a face mask, dinner where the menu is disposable, where ... half the tables in that restaurant no longer appear, where your temperature is checked before you walk into the establishment," Newsom said. "These are likely scenarios."
Concerts or conferences still won't be possible for a while
Even though restaurants and other businesses will likely be able to reopen when stay-at-home orders are lifted, it won't be safe for people to congregate at large events like conferences and concerts until officials can determine that a significant portion of the population is immune to COVID-19 and a vaccine is available, Newsom said.

"The prospect of mass gatherings is negligible at best until we get to herd immunity," Newsom said. "Large-scale events that bring in hundreds, thousands, tens of thousands of strangers all together across every conceivable difference — health and otherwise — is not in the cards based upon our current guidelines and current expectations."
Schools may have to rearrange their desks
Classrooms will be reconfigured to help keep up physical distancing within schools when they reopen.
Sidewalks and playgrounds will be deep-cleaned regularly
As more people leave their homes, Newsom said businesses, schools, parks, playgrounds, and even sidewalks will need to be regularly sanitized to prevent infection.

The state is planning for "massive deep cleaning, lots of sanitation" of public places, he said.
