State of California – CA Blueprint for a Safer Economy
A new blueprint for business sector re-opening was unveiled by Governor Newsom on August 28, 2020, which includes a color-coded, tiered system that will use two metrics to measure the novel coronavirus: spread rate and test positivity percentage.
The tiers are designated by four colors: purple (widespread), red (substantial), orange (moderate) and yellow (minimal with the lowest restrictions). As of September 8, 2020, Orange County moved into the red tier. Find the status of activities in Orange County by visiting https://covid19.ca.gov/safer-economy/
