Posted by on April 29, 2020


During yesterday’s (28th) press conference, Gov. Gavin Newsom has revealed California’s four-stage reopening plan for the state’s economy after weeks of quarantine due to controlling the spread of COVID-19. According to the LA Times, the reopening plan has no timetables as they are trying to avoid another shutdown. Stage 2 can possibly be phased in a matter of weeks. However, Stages 3 and 4, which includes concerts, could take months.


Read all four stages below:

Stage 1: Safety And Preparedness (The stage we are in right now)
