On Friday, August 28, 2020, Governor Newsom announced a new framework for reopening businesses based on the local spread of COVID-19 in counties using two key metrics: case rate (new cases per 100k) and testing positivity rate. This framework utilizes a color-coded four tier system and will replace the “County Data Monitoring List” as of August 31, 2020. A counties movement within the tier system will trigger the opening or closures of specific indoor business operations. Currently, the majority of California are in the lowest tier including: Los Angeles County, Orange County, Riverside County, and San Bernardino County.
“ A county will remain in a tier for a minimum of three weeks before being able to advance to a later tier. To move forward, a county must meet the next tier’s criteria for two consecutive weeks. If a county’s metrics worsen for two consecutive weeks, it will be assigned a more restrictive tier. Public health officials are constantly monitoring data and can step in if necessary.” – California’s COVID-19 Website
