San Mateo County Supervisor, David Canepa, joins The Chip Franklin Show to discuss the slow opening planned for his region.

Canepa is optimistic of the good news but notes, “If we don’t have public health, then we really can’t have economic health.”

The Orange Tier allows:

  • Places of worship: open indoors at 50% capacity
  • Movie theaters: open indoors at 50% capacity or 100 people, whichever is fewer
  • Hotels: open with modifications, plus their indoor pools can open and fitness centers can open at 25% capacity
  • Gyms: open indoors at 25% capacity and can open indoor pools
  • Restaurants: open indoors at 50% capacity or 200 people, whichever is fewer
  • Wineries, breweries and distilleries: open indoors at 25% capacity or 100 people, whichever is fewer
  • Bars: outdoor only
  • Family entertainment centers: open indoors at 25% capacity for naturally distanced activities like bowling and rock climbing walls
  • Professional sports: outdoor stadiums can have audiences up to 33% capacity starting April 1
  • Live performances: outdoor only at 33% capacity starting April 1

Counties aiming to move tiers they must do the following:

Requirements to Advance Tiers:

  • 21 day mandatory wait time between moves
  • Meet metrics for next tier for 2 straight weeks
  • Counties only move 1 tier at a time
  • Assessed weekly

Requirements to Move Back Tiers:

  • Fail to meet the current tier’s metrics for 2 straight weeks
  • Emergency brake for concerning factors like hospitalizations
