Next month California businesses will no longer have capacity limits in place. The current state tier system which regulated COVID-19 measures, will no longer be in place starting on June 15, 2021.
“On June 15, the color-coded tier system…will no longer be in place,” said California’s Secretary of Health and Human Services Dr. Mark Ghaly. More specifically, he added, “Certain things like capacity limits will no longer be in place in California cities.”
Governor Newsom promised in early April that the state would be fully opening up on June 15. Dr. Ghaly confirmed that the state is on track to meet that date. If the state continues on track, capacity limits will be removed for movie theaters, concert venues and theme parks, though some businesses may require proof of vaccination.
From California’s Beyond the Blueprint page:
“All sectors listed in the current Blueprint Activities and Business Tiers Chart may return to usual operations in compliance with ETS/Cal OSHA and other statewide agency guidelines and standards with limited public health restrictions, such as masking, testing, and testing or vaccination verification requirements for large-scale higher-risk events.”
The state mask mandate will also remain in place. There is no timeline for the mask mandate.
The two main measures California continues to look at are sufficient vaccine supply for Californians age 16 and over and that hospitalization numbers are stable and low. Both measures look good right now.
Disneyland is currently operating at 25% capacity and is only open to California residents. Those measures can change starting June 15 but we will see what Disneyland decides to do.
