RED TIER REOPENINGS: County Lists New Business Sectors That Can Open Or Expand, and Asks Citizens to Please Stay Vigilant

From the Humboldt County Joint Information Center:

Humboldt
County has moved into the “Red” or Substantial tier under the
state’s “Blueprint for a Safer Economy,” meaning many local
business sectors can expand capacity with COVID-19 prevention
measures in place. These changes take effect at one minute past
midnight tonight.

The
California Department of Public Heath announced today that Humboldt
County’s adjusted case rate and positivity rate are 6.3 and 2.7%
respectively, putting the county firmly in the Red tier without
relying on the state’s Health Equity Metric.

Humboldt
County Department of Health & Human Services Public Health
Director Michele Stephens expressed cautious optimism, saying that
while there’s reason to celebrate the move to the Red tier, the
county is facing a long recovery.

“I’m
proud to be part of a community that has worked so hard to get back
to this point,” Director Stephens said. “To build on that
success, we need to continue following all prevention measures and
vaccinating as many people as possible as quickly as possible. That
gives us our best chance to make this the last time we are ever in
the ‘Purple’ tier.’”

Some
of the changes under the Red tier include:

  • Restaurants
    – Open indoors at 25% capacity or 100 people, whichever is fewer.

  • Gyms
    and Fitness Centers

    – Open indoors at 10% capacity; climbing walls open; indoor pools,
    saunas, steam rooms, hot tubs remain closed.

  • Retail
    – Open indoors at 50% capacity.

  • Shopping
    Centers, Malls, Swap Meets

    – Open indoors at 50% capacity; food courts open at 25% capacity
    or 100 people, whichever is fewer; common areas remain closed.

  • Museums,
    Zoos and Aquariums

    – Open indoors at 25% capacity.

  • Places
    of Worship

    – Remain open indoors at 25% capacity.

  • Movie
    Theaters

    – Open indoors at 25% capacity or 100 people, whichever is fewer.

  • Hotels
    and Lodging

    – Fitness centers open at 10% capacity; indoor pools, hot tubs and
    spa facilities remain closed.

  • Family

  • Wineries
    – Open outdoors only.

  • Bars,
    Breweries and Distilleries

    – Remain closed.

  • Office
    Work

    Remains remote whenever possible.

Businesses
are still encouraged to offer services outdoors as much as possible,
and some activities remain limited under the Red tier due to higher
risk of virus transmission. Live theatrical and musical performances,
for example, are not allowed by the state. Gatherings of up to three
households are allowed if everyone is wearing facial coverings and
maintaining physical distance of at least 6 feet.
