Beyond the Blueprint
Full Reopening Planned for June 15th
On June 15, California plans to fully open its economy if two criteria are met:

  1. Equitable vaccine availability: If vaccine supply is sufficient for Californians 16 years or older who wish to be inoculated.
  2. Consistently low burden of disease: Hospitalizations are stable and low, and specifically, hospitalizations among fully vaccinated individuals are low.
