SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP)
With virus cases slowing, Gov. Gavin Newsom announced a new color-coded system for reopening the state’s economy and schools.
The new system comprises four tiers — purple, red, orange and yellow — which are based on the COVID-19 infection rate in a county and the percentage of tests in the county that are positive for COVID-19.
San Diego County falls into the red or 2nd tier of the new state system.
What this means for you today!
Counties in the red tier can allow:
- Hair salons and barbershops to reopen for indoor service with modifications to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.
- Churches and other places of worship can reopen for indoor services at 25% capacity or 100 people, whichever is fewer.
- Restaurants can reopen for indoor dining services at 25% capacity or 100 people, whichever is fewer.
The red tier represents counties with daily infection rates between 4 and 7 infections per 100,000 residents or with positive test rates between 5% and 8%.
Safe Reopening Guidelines will be required, but are not currently posted on the County of San Diego website.
