Stanislaus County Moves to Orange Tier

Stanislaus County Moves to “Moderate” Orange Tier

Stanislaus County – California Department of Public Health announced today that Stanislaus County has
met the requirements to move into the Orange Tier of the State’s Blueprint for a Safer Economy effective
tomorrow, June 9th, 2021. This tier allows many activities to resume, according to the State’s expanded
capacity limits and safety protocols, including:
• Indoor dining at maximum 50% capacity or 200 people maximum
• Retail stores open with modifications (no capacity limit)
• Wineries and Breweries to open at 25% capacity or 100 people indoor maximum
• Gyms and fitness centers at maximum 25% capacity; indoor pools reopened
• Movie theaters at maximum 50% capacity or 200 people, whichever is fewer
• Zoos, museums, and aquariums at 50% maximum indoor capacity
Local businesses must continue to follow all of the State’s guidance for their industry to ensure their
establishments are safe for both their employees and clients. The shift to the Orange Tier comes as the
County continues to expand its mobile vaccination efforts to more neighborhoods in the county.
“Reaching Orange Tier is reflective of our community’s conscious efforts in stopping the spread of
COVID-19 and getting vaccinated” said Dr. Julie Vaishampayan, Stanislaus County Public Health Officer.
“As more people get vaccinated, the closer we get to ending this pandemic and saving lives. An additional
benefit to getting vaccinated” right now is that it will give people a chance to win incentives.”
Those who get vaccinated between May 27th, 2021 to June 15th, 2021 can receive a $50 store gift card or be
entered to win cash prizes through California’s Vax For The Win program. Californians who have already
received at least one dose are eligible to win the following cash prizes:
• $50,000 cash price to 15 winners on Friday, June 11th, 2021 (the last draw was on June 4th, 2021); and
• $1.5 million each to 10 total winners on June 15th, 2021
For rules, eligibility, and more details, please visit, Vax for the Win website. Additionally, for each student
getting vaccinated, Stanislaus County Public Health will contribute $1 to their school’s student body fund.

Vaccines are available to individuals aged 12 and over by appointment or walk-in. To encourage more
community members to get vaccinated, the state of California is giving away cash and gift card
incentives. Community members are encouraged to visit or call 1-833-540-0473 to find
the nearest vaccination site if they choose to make an appointment. Vaccinations are always free and
open to those who live and work in Stanislaus County regardless of immigration status.
