The state has eased its rules for reopening dine-in restaurants and stores.

Under California’s new rules, Sacramento and Yolo counties may be among the next set of counties to reopen more businesses.

Gov. Gavin Newsom said California’s hair salons may reopen “within a window of a few weeks.”

The Sacramento Kings will implement a four-month furlough for 100 full-time employees, about a third of the Kings’ staff.

The Sacramento Kings will no longer charge $500,000 per month rent for Sleep Train Arena, which as a field hospital will be placed on “warm shutdown” status at the end of May, meaning it could be reopened later if needed. The Kings will keep the $1 million the organization has been paid so far.

The Sacramento Zoo announced its reopening plan, then after a few hours its approval for reopening was rescinded. (Video)
