Orange County officially entered the least restrictive yellow tier on Wednesday, representing the lowest coronavirus transmission seen in the region since the onset of the pandemic.
Businesses are now able to reopen more fully by increasing capacity and operations.
This includes area tourism driver Disneyland Resort, which reopened on April 30 at 25% capacity. The resort’s two theme parks can increase occupancy to 35% in the yellow tier.
The county can also expand capacity at restaurants, gyms, movie theaters, sports venues and other businesses.
Bars that do not serve food, currently only able to operate outdoors, can reopen indoors at 25% capacity.
The color-coded reopening guidelines were first implemented in August, and could be scrapped as soon as next month as the state aims to fully open its economy on June 15.
