Linked HERE is Placer County’s COVID-19 monthly in-depth report, posted to their website on Nov. 6, 2020. There are four tiers based on a county’s risk level: Purple (widespread) Red (substantial), Orange (moderate), and Yellow (minimal). Purple is the highest tier/risk level with more than seven daily new cases (per 100K) of COVID-19.

- California’s Tier System by County
- Reopen Placer website reflects where we stand as of today, which is red
- Framework by business type
- CDPH will assess indicators weekly.
- A county will remain in a tier for a minimum of three weeks before being able to advance to a lower tier.
- A county can only move forward one tier at a time, even if metrics qualify for a more advanced tier.
- If a county’s case rate and test positivity measure fall into two different tiers, the county will be assigned to the more restrictive tier.
- Catering Service/Banquets: allowed as takeout but not to provide service to an event or gathering. In the case of catering with a physical location, they would follow guidance for restaurants, which will allow indoor dining at 25% capacity or 100 persons, whichever is less.
- Meetings: no gatherings or meetings over 10 persons are allowed at this time.
- No gatherings of any number of non-household members are permitted, other than places of worship and protests.
