    “Patty Zoll, from the county’s Human Resources Department, was among the amazing team of Disaster Service Workers (pictured above) at the Ventura Cotunty Fairgrounds COVID-19 vaccine clinic until May 10. Like all Disaster Service Workers (DSWs), she paused her regular work in Training and Development to respond to the pandemic. When the days were heavy, she reminded herself that DSWs are a part of history in helping Ventura County access vaccines and end the COVID-19 pandemic. She is pictured here with the DSW crew from the Fairgrounds that became “like family.

    The County of Ventura will enter the least restrictive Yellow Tier in the State’s Blueprint for a Safer Economy at 12:01 am on Wednesday, June 2, 2021 after meeting the required metrics for the required two-week period. Today, the State has reported that Ventura County’s adjusted case rate remained in the yellow tier by further improving from 1.5 new cases per 100,000 people to 1.2 new cases per 100,000. The overall test positivity rate remained at .7% and in health equity areas the test positivity rate dropped from 1.4% to 1.1%.
    “Though it is only two weeks until full reopening, every day matters for our businesses. Expanded customer capacity will help impacted businesses. We appreciate the hard work of our community members in getting us to this point,” said County Executive Officer Mike Powers.
    Moving into the yellow tier will allow for increases in capacity in many sectors and will also allow bars to begin providing indoor service at 25% capacity. The sectors with increases in capacity limits include amusement parks and fairs, gyms and fitness centers, yoga studios, private events, bars, hotels and short-term lodging rentals, private gatherings, breweries, indoor playgrounds, restaurants, cardrooms and racetracks, indoor and outdoor live events and performances, wineries and tasting rooms, family entertainment centers, and museums, zoos, and aquariums.
    “Reaching the Yellow Tier is a great accomplishment. I appreciate the collective work of our community members who have helped us move forward,” said Public Health Director Rigoberto Vargas.
    “The Yellow Tier means we are continuing to allow more activities to be done safely with more people. To keep this progress up, we encourage all community members over the age of 12 to get the COVID-19 vaccine,” said Public Health Officer Doctor Robert Levin. “The vaccine is the most powerful tool available to reduce transmission of COVID and prevent hospitalizations and deaths from the virus. Increasing the number of people vaccinated will help us continue to move forward.”
    The State of California announced a new vaccine incentive program launched May 27 as part of the larger Vax for the Win reward program. The incentive program encourages Californians who have not yet been vaccinated to get started today.
    The next 2 million Californians who start and complete their COVID-19 vaccination process beginning May 27 will be eligible for a $50 incentive card and other cash prizes.
    Prizes include:
    • $15M grand cash prize split between 10 vaccinated Californians
    • $50,000 Fridays cash prizes for 30 vaccinated Californians
    • $100M in $50 cards for the next 2M new fully vaccinated Californians
    Californians will receive a single-use redemption code and link through text message or email 7-10 days after their final dose to claim their incentive card. If the participant does not have a phone or email, they can call 1-833-993-3873 to receive their single-use redemption code.
    You do not have to register through to qualify for this incentive. You are eligible if you get vaccinated at any site in California that reports to the statewide vaccination registry (CAIR), including in-home vaccination services.
    Participants are eligible to receive a $50 card if they:
    • Live in California,
    • Are aged 12 and older,
    • And get vaccinated starting on or after May 27.
    The State has released guidance for reopening the economy on June 15, 2021. All sectors listed in the state’s current Blueprint Activities and Business Tiers Chart may return to usual operations (with the limited exceptions for Mega Events).
    Employers are subject to the current Cal/OSHA COVID-19 Prevention Emergency Temporary Standards (ETS), if applicable to them.
