Santa Barbara County officially qualified for the yellow tier of COVID-19 restrictions on Tuesday after nearly seven weeks in the orange tier.
The yellow tier, which is the least restrictive of the state’s tiers, will go into effect at 8 a.m. Wednesday.
Under yellow tier restrictions, restaurants, gyms, wineries, movie theaters and places of worship can open at 50% capacity indoors. In addition, retail stores can open with no capacity limitations.
