We are finally getting back to normal next Tuesday. Mostly. Sort of. Certain mask requirements will stay in place on June 15, 2021. Importantly, the emergency is not over and all of the emergency orders issued in the last year stay in place for another few months.
It also means public health officials and the governor can reinstate any restrictions they want or impose new restrictions they want and can do so anytime they want.
The good news portion of changes on June 15 is the four level color-coded system is gone. No more of the purple, red, orange, and yellow grading based on arbitrary numerical targets (which as we have seen the state can unilaterally shift as desired). The stay-at-home orders will officially end.
Best part of the good news is the capacity limits and physical distancing requirements are gone.
Now on to the remaining and new restrictions.(more…)
