City Of Manteca

Essential Businesses

​​​​​Generally, essential businesses that may remain open are defined as those people rely upon in their day-to-day life. Even establishments that are allowed to remain open should practice adequate social distancing for both employees and patrons. Businesses within shopping malls are treated on an individual basis. No one is prohibited from working remotely from their home. 

Below are non-exhaustive lists of businesses that may remain open and those that shall close. If you have questions about whether a business may remain open, please contact the Manteca Emergency Operations Center at (209) 456.8854 or eocinfo@ci.manteca.ca.us, and check this page for the Governor's full list​ of essential businesses.​​​​​  Click here for the City Of Manteca Emergency Order.​
