Gov. Gavin Newsom outlined the state’s next step in the COVID-19 pandemic recovery as California surpasses a major milestone in the fight against COVID: administering more than 20 million vaccine doses including 4 million in the state’s hardest-hit communities, and declining hospitalizations. If two criteria are met by June 15, California will fully open its economy.
The two criteria are vaccine supply remains sufficient for Californians 16 years and older who wish to be inoculated, and hospitalization rates remain stable and low. Everyday activities will be allowed and businesses can open with common-sense risk reduction measures, including encouraging all Californians to get vaccinated and mask mandating to prevent illness.
The state will continue contact tracing and testing to detect cases early and contain spread of the virus. The entire state will move into this new phase as a whole.
The state will monitor hospitalization rates, vaccine access and vaccine efficacy against variants with the option to revisit the June 15 date if needed.
