California To Fully Open Economy June 15

Regarding the reopening of schools, Newsom said that counties could still have their own restrictions past June 15, but he hoped all schools would reopen. However, masking will still be required in many circumstances, and social distancing will be recommended.

However, Gov. Newsom was sure to note that this timeline is dependent on continued mask-wearing and additional vaccinations. "So this is a big day".

The mask mandate will remain in place, but businesses and other venues will be allowed to reopen without occupancy limits.

The pandemic has taken its toll in California, with more than 58,000 people dead, businesses closed and students who have been out of classrooms for much of the year.

The state's Health and Human Services secretary says California's mask mandate will remain in effect.

Dr. Mark Ghaly, the state's secretary of health and human services, said in an earlier briefing Tuesday, April 6, that the current trend toward lower COVID-related hospitalizations has a lot to do with the the level of confidence now on display. Other modifications may be needed.

NIH Testing Moderna Vaccine Against S. African Variant
The ongoing research found the vaccine was 91.3% efficacious against the disease a half year after a second dose was administered. Experts fear new variants of COVID-19 from South Africa and Brazil may be resistant to existing vaccines and treatment.

Newsom opponents thought the announcement was politically motivated. While the color-coded system is based on detailed metrics for assessing risk, daily monitoring of infection rates and detailed calculations for capacity, the new plan has none of that. Both Newsom and Ghaly struggled at times Tuesday to explain the changes without adding caveats.

California reported the lowest positivity rate in the country at 1.7%, far from its peak of 17.1% in early January when the state was reeling from a post-holiday surge. If the supply isn't there, we may make some tweaks to that June 15 date. That number is expected to surpass 30 million by the end of the month, Newsom said. California has now administered over 20 million doses. Roughly 7.5 million residents are fully vaccinated, and 6 million are partially inoculated. And now we look at what is beyond that Blueprint for a Safer Economy that has been guiding California's slow, public-health-minded transition and opening of our economy.

"The population of 16-plus, among that population are those that defied all guidance and went to places like South Beach in Miami in crowds", she said.

The Santa Monica Pier welcomed outdoor visitors on Monday as Los Angeles County entered the less restrictive orange tier.

He said officials are designing a system that will be able to administer some 5.8 million doses on a weekly basis, more than double the capacity of the approximately 2.5 million it received last week from the federal government.

State officials said Tuesday that allows for life to nearly get back to a pre-pandemic normal.
