Can someone explain how they were able to calculate the date they chose? Why June 15?
I'm pretty sure it's to justify one more multitrillion dollar "covid relief" bill that includes trillions of dollars in unrelated spending they can rush through with minimal scrutiny.
Let’s let’s go back to talking about the parks! It’s what used to make these boards fun.To be fair, the announced end to the tiers is a political move. But, I agree that it is unnecessarily to dive deep into that rabbit hole. It is what it is, and the upshot is, we get to go back to complaining about Smuggler’s Run!
But the title of this thread is discussing a political move that the Governor made.

Does this mean it is not mandated in non-congested indoor and outdoor situations?Updated travel policy confirming June 15 reopening for everything but conventions posted to visitcalifornia.com:
Coronavirus: With one of the nation’s highest vaccination rates and lowest case rates, nearly all of California is open to welcome visitors. All restrictions except those for conventions of more than 5,000 attendees are scheduled to lift statewide on June 15. California has issued a travel advisory that recommends caution and suggests self-quarantines for visitors from out of state and Californians returning to the state, but those steps are not mandatory. Public health officials have directed everyone in California to continue to wear face coverings in congested indoor and outdoor situations.
Definitely a strange time everywhere. I don’t want to make anyone uncomfortable so I always bring a mask and see how the crowd is. Just played a lovely round of mini golf as a family and we drove in wondering if masks would be required—most in this crowd decided “no” which makes sense since it is easy to distance and no one has ever wanted the next group teeing up before they finish. Meanwhile, at a playground, half of the kids had masks and half didn’t. That made me uncomfortable since young kids, in particular, don’t stay distant (not their fault; the parents should be more respectful).Does this mean it is not mandated in non-congested indoor and outdoor situations?
Serious question as I don't think I've seen it worded quite that way previously?
Example: went to Ikea the other day - as crowded as ever and virtually no one social distancing. If I'd experienced this earlier in the pandemic when a lot less people were vaccinated or had natural antibodies, I might have turned around and left. But as it was just recently, it felt more annoying than anxiety-driving. (I'd define this experience as congested indoors.)
By contrast, I was in an open plan store yesterday that was virtually empty other than my companion, myself and the salesperson. And it just felt lonesome and odd. lol But we all wore our masks of course, though I expect (by age) that the salesperson was likely vaxxed already. (I'd define this experience as non-congested indoors.)
Another example - drove by a park and everyone walking/exercising around the park was maskless. It was outside and looked distanced, safe and normal. A block further away on the sidewalks, everyone had their masks on while walking outside. (I'd define both of these as non-congested outdoors but were treated differently.)
I'm sure Disney will be the LAST to drop mask mandates, but I'm curious to see if any loosening of policy in CA will affect any loosening in the parks - for example, WDW's new allowance of photos without masks. Will DLR get the same allowance soon?
Alternately, I'd consider walking around DCA - especially with capacity limits would feel (to me) non-congested outdoors given the wide walkways. DL in its tighter spots even with capacity limits would by contrast feel congested-outdoors (to me). Again, probably why Disney will likely wait until later rather than sooner to relax much of the mandate.
It's a strange transitional time for CA right now. But hopefully we are going in a good, healthy direction!
