Counties Continue to Progress Through Tiers
March 25, 2021
No counties moved to a more restrictive tier this week after the state’s Blueprint for a Safer Economy “Tier Tuesday” announcement.
Kern, Nevada, and Stanislaus Counties moved from purple to red, while Lassen, Marin, San Francisco, Santa Clara, Trinity, and Yolo Counties moved from red to orange. This comes on the heels of a terrific 7-day average case positivity rate of 1.7 percent and 5.5 cases per 100,000 residents statewide.
Blueprint Summary (as of March 23)
- 8 counties remain in the Purple (widespread) Tier = 6.3 percent of state’s population
- 39 counties are now in the Red (substantial) Tier = 83.2 percent of state’s population
- 9 counties are in Orange (moderate) Tier = 10.5 percent of state’s population
- 2 counties are in Yellow (minimal) Tier = approximately 4300 residents
