FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- Madera County has met the metrics to move into the orange tier of California's reopening system.

The move now puts five of the six Central California counties in the moderately restrictive tier, allowing for more businesses to reopen at higher capacities.



In the orange tier, restaurants can open indoors at 50% capacity. Movie theaters can also open at 50% capacity, and gyms can now have 25% capacity.

Wineries, breweries and distilleries can also welcome back customers indoors at 25% capacity. Click here for a full list of what can reopen in the orange tier.

As of Tuesday, Madera, Kings, Fresno, Tulare and Mariposa counties are now all in the orange tier, leaving Merced County as the only county still in the red tier in Central California.
