The Santa Barbara County Public Health Department announced April 20 that it had reached the state of California’s orange tier for reopening for the first time – allowing certain businesses like FECs to increase capacities.
As of yesterday, April 21, the county’s FECs, breweries, wineries and gyms can have 25% indoor capacity, according to KSBY. Movie theaters, museums, restaurants and more can increase to 50% indoor capacity.
For the first time in over a year, the FEC Boomers in Santa Maria will open. “We’re restocking games that have candy because we haven’t been able to restock that, especially with candy expiring,” said manager Nancy Parraguirre.
