Date: May, 18 2021 Category: COVID-19, Notification

The California Department of Public Health announced that as vaccination numbers increase and COVID-19 case rates fall, Orange County has met the required metrics to move into the Yellow Tier (Tier 4) in the state's pandemic reopening plan, effective Wednesday, May 19.

Bars may reopen indoors at 25% capacity and indoor live events may resume with limitations. Theme parks, dining, and many other businesses already open indoors may operate with greater capacity.

To view the status of a business or activity of interest under the Yellow Tier, please visit the State’s website.
