Lassen County moves into the Blueprint for a Safer Economy’s yellow tier
This week, Lassen County moved into the “minimal” spread or least restrictive yellow tier of the California Blueprint for a Safer Economy, Lassen Cares announced. Lassen County is one of only three counties in this category, joining both Alpine and Sierra counties.
The yellow tier indicates that there is minimal COVID-19 spread in the county and allows for nearly all businesses to reopen indoor operations.
Some of the changes in the Yellow Tier are as follows:
- Bars (where no meals provided) – Can open indoors with modifications – Max 25 percent capacity or 100 people, whichever is fewer.
- Churches – Can open indoors with modifications – Max 50 percent capacity – Capacity limits on places of worship are not mandatory but are strongly recommended.
- Gyms and fitness center – Can open indoors with modifications – Max 50 percent capacity
- Hair salons and barbershops – Can open indoors with modifications
- Movie theaters – Can open indoors with modifications – Max 50 percent capacity
- Restaurants (dine-in) – Can open indoors with modifications – Max 50 percent capacity

“The Blueprint for a Safer Economy Tier system will end on June 15, 2021, if we are able to contain the spread of the COVID-19 virus,” read the statement from Lassen Cares. “Lassen County would like to emphasize that it is critical to continue practice social distancing, wash your hands frequently, wear face coverings while in public, and avoid social gatherings.”
