San Luis Obispo County could reopen more businesses soon

If San Luis Obispo County continues to maintain an average of 19.5 coronavirus cases or less a day for another four days, multiple businesses can either reopen or relax restrictions as the county moves from purple to the red tier.

In California’s red tier, nail salons, movie theaters and gyms can reopen. It also allows for indoor restaurant dining.

After two weeks in the red tier, school districts can reopen K-12 schools. Though in some counties, districts have elected to wait.
