Tuesday’s announcement signals a potential end date to more than a year of isolation. While many other states have pushed ahead, California has generally resisted reopening too quickly and, in several instances, has moved to reinstate restrictions to stem rising new cases and hospitalizations.
But the pandemic has taken its toll, killing more than 58,000 Californians, while shuttering scores of businesses and forcing millions of students to attend school remotely for much of the year.

Ray Hannigan and Tobin Heminway were shocked when they learned they were losing insurance for their boutique winery in eastern Napa County’s Chiles Valley appellation, Green & Red Vineyard.
In January, a week after they finished making the fire safety fixes recommended by an inspector from their insurer, they said they received a letter that coverage of the 5,000-case-a-year winery building and wine inventory would be terminated at the end of this month because the property has “ineligible risk” for wildfire damage.

Ali F. Elmezayen, 45, drove a vehicle — with his wife and two sons inside — off a Los Angeles port into the San Pedro Bay in April 2015. Elmezayen escaped the submerged car through his open window. His ex-wife, Rabab Diab, could not swim but survived when a nearby fisherman threw her a life preserver.
The couple’s sons, 13-year-old Elhassan and 8-year-old Abdelkrim, drowned. Both children were said to have autism, the release said.
