California has moved Santa Clara County from the Red Tier to the Orange Tier in the “Blueprint for a Safer Economy.” The Orange Tier allows more businesses and activities to resume. Changes are effective October 14. We’ve outlined them here. Keep in mind that activities allowed under the Order are not necessarily safe. Certain activities, such as dining indoors and gathering, are still high risk. Continue to wear a mask, limit your contact with others, keep your distance from anyone outside your household, and get tested.
