On Tuesday, Orange County was upgraded to a less restrictive level of California's four-tier, color-coded reopening plan, lifting some of the countywide restrictions on indoor dining.

Now that Orange County is in the Substantial/Red tier, restaurants can serve patrons in their dining rooms as long as they don't exceed 25% capacity or 100 people, whichever is fewer. Wineries in OC can operate outdoors only while bars, breweries and distilleries are still closed.

The new "Blueprint for a Safer Economy," which went into effect on August 31, places all 58 California counties into one of four tiers.

Los Angeles County is still in the most restrictive Widespread/Purple tier, which forbids all indoor dining at restaurants.
