Governor Gavin Newsom has announced that the state may “fully reopen its economy” on June 15 provided two criteria are met:
If vaccine supply is sufficient for Californians 16 years and older who wish to be inoculated
If hospitalization rates are stable and low
If these are met, “everyday activities will be allowed and businesses can open with common-sense risk reduction measures.” Face mask mandates will still be in place. While reopening was previously dependant on case numbers in individual counties, this new plan will see the entire state reopen at once.
California has currently administered over 20 million vaccine doses.
