California is currently on track to dropping tier restrictions and lifting capacity limits if things stay as is, according to California’s Secretary of Health and Human Services. The state will also remove most mask mandates according to the Governor.
- Deadline has reported that California’s Secretary of Health and Human Services Dr. Mark Ghaly stated on Tuesday that the state is on track to drop the tier restrictions and capacity limits.
- Governor Gavin Newsom had announced back in April that California’s economy would be able to fully reopen on June 15 and move away from the color tier system as long as current trends continued.
- Ghaly had since said that as of May, the state is on track to meet the goal.
- The Governor also stated today that the mask mandate would be lifted on June 15, except for large indoor gatherings where people from around the world are mixing.
- The state will fully reopen as long as the vaccine supply continues to be sufficient for California residents who wish to get the shot and if hospitalization rates remain low.
- If the current track continues, we may see capacity limits dropped for movie theaters, theme parks, and more.
- Although capacity limits may be lifted on June 15 for theme parks if current trends hold, it’s unknown if the Disneyland Resort and other theme parks would open up to full capacity or gradually increase over time.
