Capacity Information for Businesses
Capacity or maximum occupancy are numbers that are established by the San Ramon Valley Fire Protection District.
How to calculate your TEMPORARY limitationsRetail stores may remain open but must limit capacity to 20% of maximum.
With the current retail limitation of 20% capacity, to calculate maximum occupancy you would take the square footage of your business and divide it by 60. This is your maximum occupancy limit under normal circumstances. To calculate your 20% maximum occupancy, you would then times by 0.20.
For example, a business with 2,000 sqft
2000 / 60 = 33.3
Next, times that by 0.20 33.3 x 0.20 = 6.7 which would give a new maximum occupancy of 7 customers (rounded up).
This year of COVID-19 has made 2020 anything, but business as usual and is truly uncharted territory for you, your employees, customers and community. Reopening must be balanced with careful planning and diligent follow through to help protect those that depend on you for employment and those that rely on your goods and services.
