El Dorado County Moves to Orange Tier

Effective April 7, El Dorado County is in the less restrictive Orange Tier, moving from the more restrictive Red Tier that it has operated under since early March 2021. Gov. Gavin Newsom also announced that June 15 is the target date for California to fully reopen, which it will be able to do as long as current COVID case trends continue. 

Under the Orange Tier, restaurants will be able to operate indoors at 50% capacity, gyms can open at 25% capacity, retailers can open fully with modifications, and movie theaters can reopen at 50% capacity.

To see how the new tier level affects business operations and what tiers California’s counties are currently in, visit the state’s Blueprint for a Safer Economy website.
