New State Reopening Guidelines Start Today
California has a new blueprint for reducing COVID-19 in the state with revised criteria for loosening and tightening restrictions on activities.
According to the new updated State guidelines, all Orange County retail, shopping centers (at maximum 25% capacity), hair salons and barbershops may reopen indoor operations today.
However, movie theaters, restaurants, bowling alleys, convention centers and theme parks are not able to reopen indoor operations yet.
Some business closures from July remain, including the closure of bars and nightclubs.
The new color-coded State reopening guidelines lay out the measures that each county must meet, based on indicators that capture disease burden, testing, and health equity.
Orange County has been assigned to the Widespread Purple Tier 1.
The first opportunity for Orange County to move out of Purple Tier 1 is when the status is updated on September 8. Thereafter, a county has to remain in a Tier for a minimum three weeks (21 days) before being considered to move to the next Tier.
