Orange County Moves Into Tier 2
Tustin, CA – The City is pleased to share that as of September 8, Orange County has moved into Tier 2 (also known as the Red Tier) of the state’s “Blueprint for a Safer Economy.” Certain business sectors previously closed are now approved to re-open or expand their operations with modifications. More information on the Blueprint and County monitoring can be found here: https://covid19.ca.gov/safer-
The attached Press Release from the County details which sectors can reopen or expand. Some sectors may be in a position to offer indoor services with modifications or occupancy restrictions. Please reference the state’s Blueprint website for specific information related to your business sector.
Orange County must stay in Tier 2 (Red Tier) for a minimum of 21 days. If the state defined COVID 19 metrics continue to decline in the County and are met for a minimum of 14 days, then the County would be allowed to move into Tier 3 (Orange Tier). Schools may reopen for in-person instruction on September 22. Check with your local school district for those decisions.
Please note that the City of Tustin is not ending its program allowing outdoor expansion simply because some indoor operations are now allowed. The City will provide plenty of advanced notice if and when that occurs.
