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.

As expected, the northern California Red Flag Warning was cancelled a few hours early since the wind has weakened quickly compared to recent days. Our weather is still hot and very dry, so please continue to be cautious.
