SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Gov. Gavin Newsom is setting a hopeful date for things to start getting back to a pre-pandemic normal in California.

He says the nation's most populated state will lift most coronavirus restrictions on businesses and workplaces June 15 as long as enough people continue to be vaccinated and hospitalization rates stay low.

Officials said Tuesday that they hope enough people will be vaccinated by mid-June to allow for many activities to resume.

The Democratic governor says a statewide mask mandate will stay in place, while states nationwide have lifted those and other health restrictions.

California has had some of the nation's strictest pandemic rules.

Light scattered showers are on tap for the start of your Thursday, and I'm tracking heavier rain ahead from Thursday afternoon through mid day Friday. We'll have a lull in our wet pattern late Friday through early Saturday, but even heavier rain and snow will return this weekend and persist into next week. Major travel impacts will be possible across northern California from this wet weather.
