REDDING, Calif. - With Shasta County in the moderate category under the new state’s reopening plan -- businesses have a lot more leeway in how they operate.

Museums, restaurants, and movie theaters are just a few of the places that can open back up with reduced capacity.

“We're excited for my grandchildren so he can come and enjoy what he enjoys about Redding,” said Bill Duffany, who visited Turtle Bay with his grandson.

“We're excited to adventure more of the city.”

Coming back to Turtle Bay Exploration Park was something Bill Duffany and his grandson were looking forward to on Monday.

“He couldn't even sleep last night because he was so excited about coming to Turtle Bay,” said Duffany.

Turtle Bay Exploration Park says it can expect to see more visitors coming through.

“The museum is not the museum if we don't have people enjoying it, so we're excited,” said Melissa Maney, the guest services manager for the museum.

Since closing the inside of the museum last month, Turtle Bay put up new exhibits for visitors to enjoy.

“We have a special exhibit called Making Scents that has never been seen by the public,” SAID Maney.

Meanwhile, Fusion Lounge welcomed back its customers, even at 50% capacity. Gregg Bauer, a regular at Fusion Lounge, tells Action News Now he was glad to able to dine back inside.

“It's important for the restaurants because they've been hit hard,” said Bauer.

Co-owner Ashley Jones says when they heard restaurants could once again open for indoor dining, even at only reduced capacity, they rushed to get everything ready.

“It was kind of a rush to get food orders in and staff back on the schedule but everyone was so excited to be back working,” said Jones.

“We're back at 50% capacity and we're just trying to get back to normal as best as we can.”

Fusion Lounge is still offering takeout and curbside orders for people not yet comfortable with dining in. Fusion Lounge removed some of its tables so it won’t exceed the 50% capacity limit. The restaurant also is limiting its reservations for bigger groups.

After a windy Saturday and fairly breezy Sunday, the wind we've had is weakening as the month of February comes to a close. We can expect a mostly clear first morning of March, followed by more clouds and mild air by the afternoon.
