    Orange County Inches Toward Less Restrictive Red Tier

    “Those are good numbers,” Orange County CEO Frank Kim said. “That would get us access to a lot of sports that a lot of the community wants… We’re not at the red tier yet, but we’re going down about one point a day.”

    What to Know

    • To get to the red tier, the county has to have a case rate per 100,000 of 4 to 7, positivity rate of 5 to 8% and a Health Equity Quartile rate of 5.3 to 8%. These metrics are updated every Tuesday.
    • Hospitalizations continued a downward trend, dropping from 577 Sunday to 556 Monday.
    • There has also been a dip in demand for COVID-19 testing, Orange County CEO Frank Kim said.

    Orange County continued its march from purple to the less restrictive red tier, due to decreasing coronavirus cases, which will allow for the reopening more businesses, as 253 new COVID-19 cases and logged 38 more deaths were reported.

    The cumulative case count stands at 244,885 and the death toll rose to 3,848.
