The governor announced yesterday that due to a statewide decrease in hospitalizations and ICU cases over the last 14 days, counties will be allowed to reopen faster under new criteria. He said they are empowering local health directors and county officials to open at their own pace given they know their communities and the conditions of the community. They have eliminated the previous requirement that a county must have zero deaths over 14 days. There are other requirements but he says 53 of 58 counties would be able to meet the new guidelines, and will be ready to open starting Monday. The governor said the entire state of California is just a few weeks away from restrictions being lifted on shopping in stores, churches hair salons, and possibly professional sports without fans starting in June. Meanwhile, San Diego County Supervisor Nathan Fletcher said that in person restaurant dining and in store shopping could resume in parts of San Diego County as early as this week. Harrah’s Casino has been added to the list of casinos opening this week. They will reopen Friday.
