This also comes after Gov. Newsom announced the Golden State could fully reopen its economy on June 15 if vaccine supply is sufficient for Californians 16 years and older who wish to get vaccinated; and if hospitalization rates are stable and low. At that point, the state will rid its color-coded tier system that's been in place over the last several months.
Businesses such as shopping centers, places of worship, movie theaters, gyms, and restaurants can open indoors at 50% capacity.
In addition, breweries, wineries, and distilleries can open indoors at 25% capacity.
