Santa Clara County drops to orange tier

STORY BY TOMOKI CHIEN

Santa Clara County has fallen to the orange tier of coronavirus restrictions along with several other Bay Area counties, just a week after San Mateo County became the first in the region to do so.

Here’s a list of businesses that are allowed to open in the orange tier:

  • Bars that don’t provide meals (only outdoors)
  • Movie theaters (50% capacity or 200 people, whichever is fewer)
  • Amusement parks and theme parks (25% capacity or 500 people, whichever is fewer)

Here’s a list of businesses allowed in the red tier, but with expanded capacity in the orange tier:

  • Shopping malls (no capacity limit provided by state)
  • Places of worship (50% capacity or 200 people, whichever is fewer)
  • Indoor dining (50% capacity or 200 people, whichever is fewer)
  • Gyms and fitness centers (25% capacity)
