California To Reopen Concert Venues Starting April 15

As COVID-19 numbers have been falling, California has announced it will reopen indoor concerts beginning on April 15. Dee Dee Meyers, senior advisor to Governor Gavin Newsom and Director of the Governor’s Office of Business and Economic Development, said,

“As we continue to expand vaccine distribution, California is poised for a safe and equitable recovery. We will continue to work with businesses, arts, organizations, community groups and others to open carefully, with health and safety top of mind, so that we never have to go backwards.”

For those who wish to attend concerts, they will have to show either proof of a negative COVID test, or that they have been fully vaccinated. Additionally, concert reopenings will also depend on where each county sits on California’s tier system.

Indoor venues in purple tier cities (classified as “widespread” COVID positivity rate) will not be able to reopen. For venues with a capacity of up to 1,500 people, red tier capacity will be limited to 10% or 100 people, with the number allowing 255 if all guests are tested or show proof of vaccination. In venues with a capacity of over 1,500, testing or proof of vaccination is required, with capacity limited to 20%.

Orange tier venues with a capacity of 1,500 will be limited to 15% or 200 people, with capacity increased to 35% with proof of a negative COVID test or full vaccination. Venues with a capacity of over 1,500 will be limited to 10% or 2,000 people, with capacity increased to 35% following proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test.

Yellow tier capacity in venues of up to 1,500 will be limited to 25% or 300 people, with capacity increasing to 50% if all guests show proof of a negative test or full vaccination. Venues with more than 1,500 will be limited to 10% or 2,000 people, with capacity increasing to 50% if all guests show proof of a negative test or full vaccination.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo made the announcement last month that the city will clear venues to reopen at 33% in the month of April.
