Santa Cruz is the first Bay Area County to be removed from the State data monitoring list.
Santa Cruz has also just been moved to the “Red tier” (aka “substantial” tier) under the new California Blueprint for a safer economy.
County Health posted this press release on 9/8/2020 announcing the move to the red tier:
You can keep updated on any restrictions specific to your business industry.
For example, when you type in movie theaters for Santa Cruz County, under the red tier it says this:
Can open indoors with modifications
– Max 25% capacity or 100 people, whichever is fewer
See guidance for Movie theaters and family entertainment centers
As the County Health press release states, the red tier might be short lived as a surge is anticipated due to all the evacuations from the CZU Fire. If the case rate goes up, we could be back on the purple tier again in 14 days.
