Gavin Newsom announced new COVID-19 re-opening rules for schools and businesses. Here is some of his press release
SACRAMENTO – Governor Gavin Newsom today unveiled the Blueprint for a Safer Economy, a statewide, stringent and slow plan for living with COVID-19 for the long haul. The plan imposes risk-based criteria on tightening and loosening COVID-19 allowable activities and expands the length of time between changes to assess how any movement affects the trajectory of the disease.
Like every aspect of California’s response, data and science are the North Star, and as a result, this new framework makes a number of changes to the state’s previous resilience roadmap.
Californians can go to to find out where their county falls and what activities are allowable in each county.
“This Blueprint is statewide, stringent and slow,” said Governor Newsom. “We have made notable progress over recent weeks, but the disease is still too widespread across the state. COVID-19 will be with us for a long time and we all need to adapt. We need to live differently. And we need to minimize exposure for our health, for our families and for our communities.”
So each county will fall into one of four colored tiers – Purple (Widespread), Red (Substantial), Orange (Moderate) and Yellow (Minimal). LA and OC are currently in Purple so heavily restricted. He also released some annoying PSA's.
What a headache. Listen to Gary & Shannon try to make sense of this stuff so you people are informed.
Thanks Gary & Shannon for the fill-in week !
