California Has Moved to a Color Tier System For Reducing COVID-19

Color Tier System Newsflash

On August 28, the Governor announced a new California blueprint for reducing COVID-19 in the state with revised criteria for loosening and tightening restrictions on activities.

This blueprint builds on lessons learned from the first six months of the virus – and the new scientific understanding that has been collected – to create a new system for regulating movement and COVID-19 transmission. It includes:

  1. At least 21 days to expand activities beyond the initial tier to ensure California better limits the spread of the virus;
  2. Mandatory metrics – case rates and test positivity – to measure how widespread COVID-19 is in each county and guide what is allowed;
  3. A uniform state framework, with four categories instead of 58 different sets of rules;
  4. A more nuanced way of allowing activity: Instead of open vs. closed, sectors can be partially opened and progressively add to their operations as disease transmission decreases; and
  5. A new process for tightening back up again quickly when conditions worsen.

Based on recent data, each county will fall into one of four colored tiers – Purple (Widespread), Red (Substantial), Orange (Moderate) and Yellow (Minimal) – based on how prevalent COVID-19 is in each county and the extent of community spread. That color will indicate how sectors can operate. Based on this new tiered approach, San Bernardino County is currently in the purple, widespread tier.  

Californians can go to covid19.ca.gov to find out where their county falls and what activities are allowable in each county.
