Alameda, Santa Cruz Counties Move Into Orange Tier for Reopening

NBC Universal, Inc.

California on Tuesday moved Alameda and Santa Cruz counties to the orange reopening tier, allowing for further easing of coronavirus-related restrictions.

Among the biggest changes in the orange tier are indoor dining reopening at up to 50% capacity; bars can reopen outdoors only; gyms and fitness centers can reopen indoors at 25% capacity; and some offices can reopen with modifications.

To see what else changes in the orange tier, check out the chart below.

The move brings to six the number of greater Bay Area counties in the orange tier after Marin, San Francisco, San Mateo and Santa Clara counties landed in orange earlier this month.

Napa, Sonoma, Solano and Contra Costa counties remain in the red tier.
