California to Lift Most Coronavirus Restrictions on June 15 and Move Beyond Its Tier System


California will move away from its four-tier system for reopening June 15 and fully reopen its economy if certain conditions are met, marking a major pandemic milestone for the nation’s most populous state, the governor’s office announced Tuesday.

The state’s color-coded Blueprint for a Safer Economy has guided the state’s reopening process in each of its 58 counties during the pandemic. On Tuesday, a statement from the governor’s office said California will move away from the system and fully reopen if two conditions 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 .

We can now begin planning for our lives post-pandemic.

Gov. Gavin Newsom

“We’ll be getting rid of the blueprint as you know it today,” Gov. Newsom said.

Most capacity limits will be lifted, although large-scale indoor events, such as conventions, will be allowed only with testing or vaccination verification requirements, state health officials said. The two-month advance notice should give people enough time to schedule their first vaccination dose, wait the recommended three to four weeks for a second shot and get through the two-week period for the vaccines to fully kick in, Health and Human Services Secretary Mark Ghaly said.
