California will fully reopen its economy by June 15 if the current pace of vaccinations continues, lifting all Covid-related restrictions on businesses, Governor Gavin Newsom said Tuesday.اضافة اعلان

The nation’s most populous state has administered 20 million vaccine doses, and new infections remain low after rapidly declining since January.

The state will end its tier-based reopening blueprint provided there are no COVID-19 infection spikes or vaccine supply shortages, said Newsom.

“We can confidently say by June 15th that we can start to open up, as business as usual, subject to ongoing mask-wearing and ongoing vigilance,” he told a press conference.

All businesses will be free to reopen, with Californians encouraged to follow “common-sense risk reduction measures.”
