California Gov. Gavin Newsom lifted certain executive actions Friday tied to the COVID-19 pandemic, but they won’t go into effect until the economy reopens June 15.
Newsom is ending the executive actions that imposed a stay-at-home order and the colored tier system for counties. That means no more purple, red, or orange distinctions, reopening the economies in all counties.
The governor is also lifting the guidance that discouraged non-essential travel. Masks will no longer be needed in most settings. CDC guidance will still require them on planes and public transportation.
