San Benito, Monterey among counties moving to red tier as state eases guidelines – KSBW Monterey

San Benito County is moving to the less restrictive red tier of California’s Blueprint for a Safer Economy on Sunday, March 14. Monterey County is expected to move to the red tier on Tuesday, according to the state. The California Department of Public Health announced today that the state has met the first vaccine equity goal of at least 2 million doses administered in the Vaccine Equity Quartile. Reaching this goal allows for several counties, including San Benito, to advance to the red tier as of Sunday. The state is also expecting Monterey and 12 other counties to move to the red tier on Tuesday, March 16. The tier adjustments would be assigned Tuesday, and take effect on Wednesday, March 17. Moving to the red tier eases some community and business restrictions. Restaurants will be able to open indoor dining at 25% capacity. Retail stores can increase their capacity to 50%. Gyms and fitness centers can reopen at 10% capacity. Movie theaters, museums, zoos and aquariums can open at 25% capacity. Following new adjustments to tier guidelines, wineries, breweries and distilleries that do not serve food can open outdoors, with modifications. The Blueprint for a Safer Economy will be updated again when the state has administered four million doses in the vaccine equity quartile.
