Indoor dining, movies and museums could open at reduced capacity in San Francisco next week

Only nine of California’s 58 counties are in the red tier, including Marin and San Mateo in the Bay Area. The red tier allows more people to shop indoors, and lets other businesses open with reduced numbers of customers. Museums may open at 25% capacity, gyms at 10%, and movie theaters and restaurants at 25% or 100 people, whichever is fewer. Just two counties, Sierra and Alpine, have reached the orange tier, allowing even fewer restrictions.

The news came as deaths from COVID-19 surpassed 50,000 across the state Wednesday, county data shows.

New coronavirus cases continue to fall across the state, however, and more Californians are becoming eligible to be vaccinated.

In San Francisco, teachers, grocery workers and emergency responders who live or work in the city became eligible to be vaccinated for the first time on Wednesday.

But not everyone was able to make an appointment.
