GLENN COUNTY, Calif. - Glenn County has moved from the state's most restrictive purple tier to the less restrictive red tier of the state’s Covid-19 Blueprint for a Safer Economy. 

Businesses in Orland are making changes now that Glenn County has moved to a less restrictive tier.

“We were so excited to learn yesterday that we had reached the red tier,” said Special Project Manager for the Hive, Terrie Barr. 

“I am really happy to be able to open again,” said Owner of Pizza Palace, Heidi Gilmore.

Businesses in Orland like Pizza Palace and the Hive are now taking the next steps to make sure they can keep their doors open.

“We’ve just been running nightly specials to keep things running," said Gimore. "We have a few front tables in our front dining area and a few in the back.”

“Working towards getting more people indoors by taking our some of the things that are taking space and expanding our indoor area so we can meet that 25% indoor dining that they have allowed,” said Barr. 

Barr said that the restaurant has been coming up with new ways to serve customers while still making money.

She that they installed this door right here so that people can come into their new shop last week as a way to make more money and to keep people up and moving around and not be confined in a small space.

“They can walk through the shop," said Barr. "They can shop or they can just enjoy and in doing that, it allows them another option when they are here rather than just sitting at a table in a constant space." 

After being open for 40 years, Gilmore said shutting down again could have them not rolling in the preverbal dough.

“The longer it goes, it’s the worst it’s gotten,' said Gilmore. "We just go back to take out like we have been doing. I really hope we don’t have to go back there.”

Action News Now reached out to Glenn County Public Health to see how the county can best maintain staying in the red tier and they said community members need to continue to wash their hands, social distance, wear face coverings in public, stay home when sick, and avoid large gatherings.

A cold front has moved over northern California on this day before Thanksgiving, and it brought light rain and snow showers to the higher terrain, gusty wind and cooler air for all. Thanksgiving will still be breezy, but also mild and pleasant.
