"The state of California announced that, beginning Wednesday, May 12, a multitude of indoor businesses and activities in San Mateo County can reopen or expand as the risk from COVID-19 is 'minimal.'
The move to the state’s least restrictive yellow tier allows expanded capacity at restaurants, gyms, movie theaters, indoor businesses and a host of other operations. Bars that do not serve food can reopen indoors with a maximum capacity of 25 percent or 100 people, whichever is fewer.
This is San Mateo County’s first time in the yellow tier since the state last summer unveiled the color-coded 'Blueprint for a Safer Economy.' The advance comes six weeks before Gov. Gavin Newsom has said the entire state may fully reopen on June 15."
"The move into yellow officially takes effect Wednesday at 12:01 a.m."
"Also today, Health Officer Dr. Scott Morrow has rescinded his June 17, 2020 order for social distancing guidelines and face covering requirements in favor of State guidance. The move allows San Mateo County to align with the guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the California Department of Public Health. The CDPH issued its Guidance for the Use of Face Coverings on May 3, 2021."
