On August 28, 2020, the State revised its criteria for counties to reopen local businesses, schools, and other industries.  Please visit the State’s Blueprint for a Safer Economy to review this criteria and understand when you can reopen for business.

Under the State’s new criteria, every county in California is assigned to a tier based on its rates of new COVID-19 cases and positivity.  Counties are eligible to transition to the next less restrictive tier, by successfully remaining in their current tier for 3 weeks.  They must also meet the criteria for the next less restrictive tier for 2 consecutive weeks. 

The State reviews COVID-19 data weekly and updates each county’s tier on Tuesdays.  State public health officials are regularly monitoring data and making adjustments when necessary.
