Governor Newsom outlines California’s plans to turn the pandemic

Governor Newsom signs executive order lifting California’s COVID-19 restrictions

Governor Gavin Newsom signed an executive order that would pull the county tier system in California back to turn the page on the pandemic.

With California just days from the retirement of the state’s COVID-19 tiered system, Governor Gavin Newsom revealed his plans for how residents can safely turn the page about the pandemic.

“California is turning the page on this pandemic thanks to the swift action of the state and the work of Californians who followed public health guidelines and got vaccinated to protect themselves and their communities,” Newsom said in a press release. “With nearly 40 million vaccines administered and one of the lowest case numbers in the country, we are undoing the ordinances that affect Californians on a daily basis while remaining vigilant to protect public health and safety if the pandemic persists.”

As of Tuesday, June 15, state-enforced restrictions such as physical distancing, capacity limits, and the county tier system will no longer apply. The state will also lift the mask requirement for vaccinated Californians starting next Tuesday.

Communities hard hit by the coronavirus aren’t as sure about how they feel about the return to normal.

In order to align with the latest CDC guidelines on mask wear, high-risk environments such as hospitals, nursing homes, homeless shelters, and public transportation will continue to require face coverings. For indoor events with 5,000 or more people, fans and attendees must provide proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test prior to admission. For outdoor events with 10,000 or more people, public health officials recommend fans and attendees to provide evidence of vaccination or testing previously negative for COVID-19.
