The California Department of Health announced that Orange County may move into the Red Tier of the State's new reopening guidelines on Sunday, March 14 meaning restaurants, gyms, churches, museums, and movie theatres may now resume indoor operations at limited capacity. Bars that do not serve meals must remain closed.
Most other retailers can continue operating, as long as they limit how many people are inside at one time.
What can now be open?
Maximum indoor capacities are dependent on business type and should be referenced in the Reopening Tier Guideline Chart and its corresponding capacity limits.
