One day after California Gov. Gavin Newsom gave a press conference from Mustards Grill in Napa the county will now be the first in the Bay Area to reopen restaurants for dine-in service and will allow schools to reopen on June 1st.

The state approved Napa's move further into phase 2 and restaurants that have met California's guidelines to provide dine-in service can begin serving patrons immediately.

Schools can reopen June 1st, but it's unclear if students will be returning for years that have already finished virtually. Napa High has a virtual graduation scheduled for this Friday.

Napa County reported no new Coronavirus cases each of the last two days and has had a total of 92 cases with 3 deaths.

This can be seen as positive news for BottleRock Napa's 2020 plan to be held October 2nd-4th as the festival works with local health officials on a plan to safely host the festival in the fall. The festival's venue is currently being used as a Coronavirus testing site ahead of the weekend it was originally scheduled for.

Where BottleRock would be, stands a coronavirus testing site. But the attitude around Napa County has gotten more optimistic after a visit from Gov. Newsom. Now, many are just waiting on wineries to reopen to hopefully get a much-needed boom in businesses during what’s so far been an empty tourist season.
