Blueprint for a Safer Economy: Inyo County Status

  • Current Status Level: Moderate
About California's Blueprint for a Safer Economy:
  • Every county in California is assigned to a tier based on its test positivity and adjusted case rate. At a minimum, counties must remain in a tier for at least 3 weeks before moving forward. 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. 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 tiers are defined as follows:
    • Widespread, Substantial, Moderate, and Minimal
