    San Francisco on Tuesday became the first major jurisdiction in California to advance into the state’s least-restrictive yellow reopening tier, according to the latest map from the California Department of Public Health. That would loosen state restrictions on many businesses to operate at a certain capacity, but San Francisco so far has resisted reopening to the extent allowed the state, even as it moved through the tier system faster than almost any other county. In a statement, Mayor London Breed said capacity at most already-open businesses could expand to 50% beginning Nov. 3, as well as a number of other restrictions being lifted more immediately. Offices will be permitted reopen at 25% capacity beginning Oct. 27, Breed said, and gyms that recently reopened could expand to that capacity, as well. Climbing gyms and other personal services will also be allowed to reopen, Breed said. “San Franciscans have done a good...

    SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — Several more Northern California counties, including Sacramento, have now moved into the less restrictive “Red Tier” of the coronavirus risk level. Sacramento, San Joaquin and Yolo counties were downgraded from widespread to substantial coronavirus spread on Tuesday. The move allows for loosening of some restrictions on activities — like dining indoors. Gyms and fitness centers, places of worship and shopping centers like malls can also now reopen as long as they strictly limit indoor capacity and enforce social distancing. California Family Fitness reopened their Orangevale location, which at 10% has the capacity for 80 people to workout at the same time. The gym plans to continue both outdoor and indoor operations. While they have several gym locations, CEO Randy Karr said he does not plan to reopen every site. “I’m not opening all clubs in Sacramento County.

County public health director Barbara Ferrer said during a press briefing that moving to the state’s “red” tier would allow for a wider array of business reopenings.

Currently L.A. County is in the “purple” – or most restrictive – level of the state’s four-tier virus-tracking roadmap.

    Santa Clara and Santa Cruz are among five counties in California that will be allowed to ease some coronavirus restrictions, Health and Human Services Secretary Mark Ghaly announced Tuesday. The state moved the two counties — along with Amador, Orange and Placer counties — from the most restrictive purple tier to the red tier, meaning the counties have met benchmarks for new cases and positive testing rates. In the red tier, counties can allow more businesses, like aquariums, to operate indoors and businesses that were already allowed to serve customers indoors, such as retail, can increase indoor capacity. However, counties can implement stricter rules than the state. For instance, San Francisco, in the red tier, has not permitted indoor salon operations despite the fact that the state’s tier system permits them. Santa Clara said it would allow personal care services to open indoors with modifications, along with museums, zoos, aquariums, gyms...
