TEHAMA COUNTY, Calif. - Tehama joins the list of more than a dozen California counties allowed to reopen further into stage 2.

After closing their doors for over a month, owners of Rockin R Restaurant, Susie and Mike Roberts, told Action News Now that they’re ready to open for dine-in.

“Very excited, very excited,” says Susie Roberts. “We’re just excited that we have a definite date to go on and something to plan on.

The owners tell Action News Now they had to lay off all their employees, but have brought them back on board for their reopening on Friday.

“It’s also an excitement of them wanting to come back for one and being a part of this and having the excitement to get to come back to work,” says Roberts.

Another restaurant in Red Bluff getting ready to open back up is family-owned restaurant Alcatraz American Food and Taqueria.

“We’re excited we can finally open,” says Stephanie Tate, co-owner of Alcatraz American Food and Taqueria. “It’s been going really good for us with to-go order and the deliveries.”

The restaurant has been in business for only two weeks. They say they’re opening their doors this coming Monday since they still have to hire staff.

“We’re starting fresh, so we don’t have any employees, so we have to get back to doing interviews, hiring, so it’s going to be a little bit of a challenge because we don’t have any employees yet,” says Tate.

Many looking forward to finally being back open.

“Moving forward, I think we’re going to do better,” says Roberts. “I still think the best days are ahead here.”

Both restaurant owners say they will be spacing out tables and ramping up their cleaning and sanitizing procedures.

Cloudy skies and very light scattered showers are lingering across northern California for the start of your Wednesday, but we'll be clearing out and warming up Wednesday afternoon. We'll be sunny and warmer on Thursday, but clouds will increase Friday. More showers are looking likely Friday night into Saturday, but we'll dry out again for Halloween on Sunday.
