Poised To Receive the News Today, Riverside County Qualified, Ready To Open A Lot of Businesses, Nail Salons, Movie Theatres…more

Poised To Receive the News Today, Tuesday September 22, 2020, Riverside County Can Continue To Progress from Tier 1 ( Purple) to Tier 2 ( Red) and Lots More Openings in the Coachella Valley!

Every county in California is assigned to a tier based on its positivity and adjusted case rates.

At a minimum, counties must remain in a tier for at least 3 weeks before moving forward.

Riverside has been in Tier 1 for 3 weeks.

Data is reviewed weekly and tiers are updated on Tuesdays. To move forward, a county must meet the next tier’s criteria for two consecutive weeks.

Riverside County has qualified for the next more lenient Tier 2 having met criteria for two consecutive weeks for adjusted case and positivity rates

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.

The county is currently in the most restrictive “purple” tier ( Tier 1) but county officials tell TodaysCalifornia.com that with our positivity and case rates on a steady decline recently, they expect a move to the less restrictive “red” tier as soon as Tuesday.

“I think it tells us that things are getting better in some ways. The virus is still out there no doubt about that. The one thing is that people we believe have been taking our messaging to heart they’ve been wearing the masks, they’ve been social distancing, they’ve been staying home when they can, that’s fantastic,” said County spokesperson Jose Arballo Jr.

The county is currently below two key metrics New Cases and Positivity Rates for the last two weeks
