If overall risk remains mitigated for 14 days, we transition the county to the green phase.The green phase eases most restrictions by lifting the stay-at-home and business closure orders to allow the economy to strategically reopen while continuing to prioritize public health.While this phase facilitates a return to a “new normal,” it is equally important to continue to monitor public health indicators and adjust orders and restrictions as necessary to ensure the spread of disease remains at a minimum.Work and Congregate Settings RestrictionsContinued Telework Strongly EncouragedBusinesses with In-Person Operations Must Follow Updated Business and Building Safety RequirementsAll Businesses Operating at 50% Occupancy in the Yellow Phase May Increase to 75% OccupancyChild Care May Open Complying with GuidanceCongregate Care Restrictions in PlacePrison and Hospital Restrictions Determined by Individual FacilitiesSchools Subject to CDC and Commonwealth GuidanceSocial RestrictionsLarge Gatherings of More Than 250 ProhibitedMasks Are Required When Entering a BusinessRestaurants and Bars Open at 50% OccupancyPersonal Care Services (including hair salons and barbershops) Open at 50% Occupancy and by Appointment OnlyIndoor Recreation, Health and Wellness Facilities, and Personal Care Services (such as gyms and spas) Open at 50% Occupancy with Appointments Strongly EncouragedAll Entertainment (such as casinos, theaters, and shopping malls) Open at 50% OccupancyConstruction Activity May Return to Full Capacity with Continued Implementation of ProtocolsThe latest business guidance, including outdoor recreation guidance, can be found here.Preliminary sports guidance can be found here.Summer camp guidance can be found here.The Governor’s amended green phase order can be found here.The Secretary of Health’s amended green phase order can be found here.Ver esta página en español.

Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error ANAHEIM >> In a game ruled by the three true outcomes of statistical royalty (home runs, walks and strikeouts), it was inevitable — a walkoff strikeout.With the game tied 2-2 in the ninth inning, Angels outfielder Ben Revere reached base with one out on an error by Dodgers sub shortstop Chris Taylor. A wild pitch moved Revere to second base.A seven-pitch at-bat by Cameron Maybin ended when he chased a changeup in the dirt from Dodgers reliever Pedro Baez. But the ball bounded away from Yasmani Grandal who chased it down — and then threw it away, over first baseman Chase Utley’s head. That allowed Revere to score the winning run as the Angels beat the Dodgers, 3-2.Until that odd outcome, the game was all about the longball. Right-hander Alex Meyer took an unconventional route to six scoreless innings against the Dodgers Wednesday. The Dodgers had five baserunners against him in the first three innings without getting a hit. All five came on walks and were stranded.Grandal led off the fourth inning with a single, the only hit off the lanky right-hander Wednesday and Meyer retired the last eight batters he faced before handing it over to the Angels bullpen.Ryu survived Simmons’ line drive in the fourth inning and did his own version of bobbing and weaving away from damage on the scoreboard. The Angels stranded runners in scoring position in the third and fourth innings.Kole Calhoun led off the sixth with a double and it looked like Ryu would slither out of trouble there as well. He struck out Albert Pujols for a third time – part of eight strikeouts in 5 2/3 innings for Ryu – and got Yunel Escobar to fly out harmlessly to right field.Simmons did the harm instead, jumping on Ryu’s first pitch to give the Angels the lead.The Dodgers cut that in half when Thompson hit a solo home run off Keynan Middleton to start the eighth inning and Justin Turner put a charge in the sellout crowd of 44,669 (the second-largest at Angel Stadium since the renovation in 1998) with a fly ball to the wall in center field.Bedrosian took over in the ninth and retired the first two batters easily. But he fell behind Grandal, 3-and-0, before working the count full. Grandal was all over a full-count slider, driving it over the wall in straightaway center field to tie the game temporarily. Andrelton Simmons banged a hanging curveball from Dodgers left-hander Hyun-Jin Ryu into the bullpens for a two-run home run that broke a scoreless tie in the sixth inning and put the Angels in front of the Dodgers in the first Angel Stadium edition of the four-game, home-and-home Freeway Series.But the Dodgers came back with home runs of their own — first by Trayce Thompson leading off the eighth inning and then by Grandal in the ninth with the Angels one strike away from closing it out.Simmons’ two-out home run was nearly all the offense the Angels needed on a night when right-hander Alex Meyer and the Angels bullpen held the Dodgers to four hits in nine innings.The Dodgers came into this annual clash of neighbors averaging eight runs per game during a 10-game winning streak with 27 home runs and a team batting average of .297.Some serious climate change has followed. They have been held to six runs in three games against the Angels while batting .148 (13 for 88) as a team through the first nine innings Wednesday.
