This is what June 15 looks like in the Bay Area – Silicon Valley

Today, June 15, 2021, California officially reopened. Here in the Bay Area, we’ve been living under fluctuating coronavirus restrictions since March 2020, when a refuge-in-place order was issued. Hide mandates arrived in April 2020. The system of reopening the colored levels of the State came at the end of last summer.

Now the levels are gone. The same applies to capacity limits in restaurants, bars, gymnasiums, places of worship, amusement parks and theaters. Indoor and outdoor gatherings of any size are permitted. And the vaccinated people no need to wear masks in most contexts.

Many Californians, of course, have been eating out, exercising, going to the movies and reuniting with loved ones for months as coronavirus cases have declined, vaccination rates have risen, and the state has relaxed. its rules. Our return to “normalcy” has been steady but gradual, accompanied along the way by both uncertainty and hope.

In that sense, today’s official reopening is less of a dramatic change in day-to-day living (although life will be different: all those chins and noses exposed!) Than a celebration of the progress we’ve made after so many losses and loneliness. This celebration consists of coffee and travel dates, bowling and swimming and music. It symbolizes the return of our life together, just in time for the long, bright summer days.
