The Provinces of San Mateo and Marin advanced to the Red Tier to reopen; SF stays purple at the moment

San Mateo and Marine counties Tuesday advanced into the second most restrictive category of the California reopening scheme, according to the California Department of Public Health. Both are out of the purple level, the category that imposes the strictest coronavirus rules.

Currently, all counties in the state are at the purple level except for 11 counties. But Gov. Gavin Newsom said on Tuesday that as rates of coronavirus cases continue to decline in the Bay Area and across California, five counties are turning red and he expects eight more counties to be allowed to ease restrictions next week – and “more than that in two weeks.”

San Francisco, which remains at the purple level at the moment despite having lower case numbers and positive test rates from San Mateo and Marin counties, may be among those advancing.

Mayor London Breed, a spokeswoman at the Washington Post Live Forum on Tuesday, said she is “hoping to make some announcements next week about some additional things we can reopen,” which include things like museums and personal matters.

“Restaurants will be able to expand,” she also said, without giving details.

Counties below the red level can allow retail stores and malls to operate at 50% of indoor capacity; Indoor museums, zoos, cinemas and dining with a capacity of 25%; And indoor gyms and fitness studios at 10%. Cultural celebrations, such as weddings and funerals, are also allowed indoors with a capacity of 25% or with 100 people, whichever is less.

Newsom said figures across the state were continuing to move in the right direction with cases, hospitalizations and deaths.

“When we talk about light, I’m talking about the bright light at the end of this tunnel,” Newsom said.
