Local Business Activity Can Expand Effective Sunday, March 14
Effective Sunday, March 14, Orange County will move into the Red Tier of the State’s Blueprint for a Safer Economy after having met Red Tier metrics, according to a County press release. As a result, many local businesses and activities in Orange County will either be allowed to expand capacity or resume operations. Visit the State’s website at https://covid19.ca.gov/safer-economy to view the status of businesses and activities under the Red Tier.
The State health department said beginning Saturday, March 13, breweries, wineries and distilleries that do not serve meals can open outdoors only with modifications in the Purple (widespread) and Red (substantial) tiers. The modifications include ensuring that patrons have reservations and patrons observe a 90-minute time limit. Service for onsite consumption must end by 8 pm. The updated guidance does not apply to breweries, wineries and distilleries that provide meals. Those establishments should continue to follow the restaurant guidance. However, bars that do not serve meals must remain closed in the Purple and Red tiers.
Beginning June 1, overnight sleepaway camps will be allowed to resume with modifications in the Red, Orange and Yellow tiers.
