California updated county tier projects Tuesday afternoon, with Alameda, Santa Cruz and Solano counties advancing from the most strict purple tier to the more lax red tier, according to the states online control panel tracking the pandemic. This allows the three counties to resume brand-new activities and business sectors, consisting of indoor dining at 25% capability, beginning Wednesday.In the Bay Area, all counties are in the red except for Contra Costa and Sonoma that stay in the purple.
Heres a rundown of what the state enables to resume at a loss tier:

It has actually been more than a month given that Gov. Gavin Newsom lifted the local stay-at-home order, allowing Bay Area counties to resume several company sectors, including outdoor dining and some indoor individual services such as hairstyles.

A countys tier assignment is based on 3 metrics: the adjusted case rate (number of brand-new cases per 100,000 locals, changed based upon testing volume); the positivity rate (percentage of individuals who check favorable for the virus of all individuals who are evaluated); and a health equity metric.

Counties in the purple category are reporting more than seven new everyday cases per 100,000 homeowners and have positivity rates above 8%. For a county to move into the red tier, it should report an average of four to seven day-to-day cases per 100,000 homeowners and a test positivity of 5% to 8% for 14 consecutive days. The orange tier needs one to 3.9 cases per 100,000 and a test positivity of 2% to 4.9%, and the yellow less than one case per 100,000 and lower than 2% positivity.

The states system sorts counties into four tiers– “purple” (widespread), “red” (substantial), “orange” (moderate) or “yellow” (very little)– that procedure the spread of COVID-19 and determine what kinds of activities and services are permitted to open. The structure allows counties to be more limiting and move more slowly than the state in resuming, if they wish.

Amusement parks, bars without meal service, bowling alleys, indoor play grounds, live theater, saunas and steam festivals, spaces and clubs are not permitted at a loss tier.
