Gov. announces new system for re-opening; Barbershops & hair salons can open indoors

Today' complete news conference

WATCH LIVE: Governor Gavin Newsom announced a new color-coded system for further re-opening the state's economy and schools. He did not announce new reopening but his adjust the criteria for reopening.

The new rules announced Friday create a four-tier, color-coded system that counties will move through based on their number of cases and percentage of positive tests. It will rely on two metrics to determine which tier a county is in: case rates and the percentage of positive tests.

Riverside County remains on the purple tier, which means most non-essential businesses must close indoor operations.

County movement is expected to be reevaluated after three weeks meaning counties like Riverside County won't be able to open businesses indoors or schools for at least three weeks.

School waivers for indoor learning in Riverside County will not be affected by the changes in the tier system.

Details: Riverside County schools can now apply for a waiver to hold in-person classes


Newsom did announce that barbershops and hair salons will be allowed to operate indoors starting Monday, August 31.
