California Gov. Gavin Newsom signed an order that lifted most coronavirus-related restrictions in the state, allowing it to officially reopen on June 15, 2021.

The state has removed most state-imposed restrictions on masks, capacity limits and social distancing, although many businesses are keeping a few in place.

A new state mask order allows vaccinated people to go most places – indoors and outdoors – without masks but still requires face coverings in public spaces for those who aren’t vaccinated.

Masks will still be required in places like hospitals, public transit, nursing homes and homeless shelters and proof of vaccination or a negative test will be required for large indoor events.

Newly opened: Katsu Bar on Western Avenue, Daedo Korean Steakhouse on 6th Street

Restaurants Permanently Closed in 2020: Gangjung Chicken (before COVID), Jun Won, Dong Il Jang, Beverly Soon Tofu, Nakwon, School Food

Also: The Face Shop and Chocolate Chair at Madang Mall are among the stores that have permanently closed as a result of COVID counter-measures.
