The State of California approved Riverside County to move into the next phase of reopening pursuant to the “Blueprint for a Safer Economy,” California’s color-coded, four-tier system that allows different levels of reopening based on a county’s positivity rate — the rate at which COVID-19 tests come back positive — and its rate of new coronavirus cases.

Riverside County will move from the most restrictive purple tier to red, which allows for the reopening of the following businesses with limited indoor operations:

  • Restaurants indoors (max 25% capacity or 100 people, whichever is fewer)
  • All retail indoors (max 50% capacity)
  • Shopping centers indoors (max 50% capacity, closed common areas)
  • Museums, zoos, and aquariums indoors (max 25% capacity)
  • Places of worship indoors (max 25% capacity or 100 people, whichever is fewer)
  • Movie theaters indoors (max 25% capacity or 100 people, whichever is fewer)
  • Gyms and fitness centers indoors (max 10% capacity)

There are no changes for hair salons and barbershops, family entertainment centers, offices, and cardrooms.
