Balboa Park museums open up to 50% capacity under orange tier

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – The county moved into the less-restrictive orange tier of the state’s coronavirus reopening system Wednesday.

The change was possible because the state administered 4 million vaccinations in low-income communities hardest hit by the pandemic. That goal triggered an adjustment of the state’s Blueprint for a Safer Economy, allowing San Diego County — which has reported fewer than six cases per every 100,000 residents for the last two weeks — to move up.

Under the orange tier, museums, zoos, aquariums, movie theaters and places of worship may have 50% of capacity indoors.
