Orange County Stay-At-Home Order Has Been Lifted

Jatziry Carreon, Staff Writer

As of January 25, 2021, the stay at home order was lifted to the Purple Tier of COVID-19 restrictions allowing outdoor dining and hair salons to reopen with restrictions as well as limited operations. Although we are in the Purple Tier of COVID-19, restaurants are allowed outdoor dining only with modifications.

Restaurants in Downtown Santa Ana quickly adapted to the new safety rules put in place while still letting diners grab a bite outdoors with remodeled patios, parking lots, and sidewalks.

With precautions taken, things are slowly going back to normal. Although the virus is spreading at a slower rate across the state, the COVID-19 pandemic is far from over and masks are required.
