SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- More businesses in San Diego County can reopen starting Friday as part of California’s phased reopening process.

Under specific state and county health guidelines, the following businesses can open as of June 12:

According to county officials, businesses will be required to complete a "Safe Reopening Plan" and share it with their employees and display it where customers and patrons can see it.

Businesses will be expected to follow general public health guidelines, including the requirement of face coverings, increased sanitization/cleanings, and protocols for social distancing.

When it comes to gyms and fitness facilities, the state recommends employees and patrons undergo temperature checks upon arrival. All guests and workers will be required to wear face coverings.

A limited number of people will be allowed inside facilities, machines will be staggered to keep guests physically distanced, and all equipment will also be frequently sanitized.

At bars and wineries, face coverings are required, and customers will be seated six feet away from one another or have a plexiglass divider between them. Read more on the changes at San Diego bars

Movie theaters will operate at 25 percent capacity, with a maximum of 100 people allowed, whichever is lowest. Some theaters will likely stagger or remove seating to keep moviegoers at a safe social distance.

  • Air and Space Museum
