Governor Newsom: Aim to fully reopen California by June 15

On April 6, following the administration of over 20 million does of COVID-19 vaccinations, California Governor Gavin Newsom announced the state’s next step in pandemic recovery: the state will fully open the economy on June 15, 2021 if two criteria are met.

The requirements are as follows: first, vaccine supply must be sufficient for Californians 16 years and older who wish to be inoculated and second, hospitalization rates must be stable and low.

Since this announcement, California has remained on track to reach this milestone, meaning that most everyday places will be open without capacity limits or social distancing requirements. Masks may still be required indoors or at large events, depending on current state and local guidelines.
