California reopens, says goodbye to nearly all COVID-19 restrictions
Jun 15, 2021 1 min, 45 secs

At the stroke of midnight, California lifted most of its COVID-19 restrictions and ushered in what has been billed as the state’s “Grand Reopening.”.

And masks — one of the most symbolic and fraught symbols of the pandemic — will no longer be mandated for vaccinated people in most settings, though businesses and counties can still require them.

Disneyland is throwing its doors open to all tourists after allowing just California residents since it opened in April.

Gavin Newsom said on the eve of the reopening.

“The state is not just poised to recover, it’s poised to come roaring back.”.

To mark the reopening, Newsom will make a few lucky residents millionaires.

In a made-for-TV main event, the governor will draw 10 names of residents who have received at least one vaccine dose and award each one $1.5 million.

The drawing is the grand finale to the nation’s largest vaccine incentive, $116 million in COVID-19 lottery jackpots and cash card giveaways.

More people tested positive for the virus in California (3.8 million and counting) and more people died (63,000 plus) than anywhere else in the country, although the nation’s most populous state had a lower per capita death rate than most others.

That dramatic drop in infections combined with an increasing number of vaccinated residents — over 70% of adults have had at least one dose — led Newsom to announce in April that most COVID-19 restrictions would be lifted June 15.

Some public health measures will stay for “mega events.” People attending indoor concerts, sporting events or other large gatherings for more than 5,000 people will have to show proof that they are vaccinated or have a recent negative COVID-19 test.

Tuesday’s reopening is, for her, just another day.

Gavin Newsom will hold the grand prize drawing for the state’s $116.5 million vaccination lottery Tuesday as the Golden State fully reopens its economy and ends most COVID-19 restrictions

Starting at 10:30 a.m., 10 partially vaccinated Californians will be chosen at random to receive a cash prize of $1.5 million each from the state’s "Vax for the Win" COVID-19 vaccine incentive program, which is being touted as the biggest in the country
