    California is rapidly speeding up the reopening of the economy. Here’s what it means

    Gov. Gavin Newsom has eased some of California’s requirements for reopening businesses.

    The rules will make it easier for counties to restart the economy, but it still likely means that regions hit hardest by the coronavirus will open more slowly.

    Why the change?

    Newsom pointed to progress, including a stable hospitalization rate among COVID-19 patients and those treated in intensive care units, as well as increased testing and more protective gear for healthcare workers.
