Riverside County has picked April 1st 2021 as the date when county residents can start a little bit of living again.
That’s when Covid-19 numbers are expected to be low enough for the government to allow live outdoor events to resume in Riverside County with a few spectators on hand to watch.
That would include live sporting events and live performances.
The number of spectators depends on what color-coded tier the county is in at the time.
To refresh your memory, in 2020, Governor Gavin Newsom set up a four color tiered ranking system across California.
Get stuck in the most restrictive Purple Tier and you’ll think Chiang Kai-shek is in charge of your neighborhood.
Red Tier means fewer restrictions.
Orange TIer allows even more places to open.
Best place to be for freedom-loving people is the Yellow Ties.
Remember, social distancing, avoiding all gatherings, avoiding all other people, and wearing a facemask at all times is required in all 4 tiers.
At the moment, on Weds March 10th 2021, Riverside County is still stuck in the most restrictive Purple Tier.

On April 1st 2021, the following will be allowed based on which color tier the County is in at that time:
