Gov. Gavin Newsom announced on January 25, 2021, that California lifted their previous “Stay-At-Home” Order, which happened on December 4, 2020.
The availability of ICU beds related to COVID-19 cases has increased more than 15% over the past 4 weeks across the state.
Each county is using the four-tier, color-coded classification system that will determine which business can reopen or not.
The majority of California is still under the Purple Tier “Widespread”. Many non-essential indoor business operations are still closed. However, some essential businesses such as restaurants can open outdoors only with modifications.
You can look for more information on which county and what kind of business or activity is or isn’t allowed to reopen at the link in the transcript.
Here are some reopening updates of other counties in the Bay Area.
