Contra Costa County Moves to COVID-19 Tier 2
Contra Costa Health Services announced Tuesday, September 29, 2020 another step forward in the effort to reopen as the county is moving from Tier 1 (purple) to Tier 2 (red) on the State of California’s COVID-19 reopening plan. Because the county’s positivity rate (3.7%) and adjusted case rate (6.7), Contra Costa will now be in the next higher tier, which will allow further reopening of businesses and services. Under the new tier, the following sectors can reopen with modifications:
- Places of worship, restaurants, movie theaters and museums can be operated indoors at 25% capacity or 100 people, whichever is less
- Gyms can reopen indoors at 10% capacity
- All personal care services, including massage, can move indoors with modifications
- Indoor shopping malls can operate at 50% maximum occupancy (instead of 25%). Food courts can also open following the state's guidelines for restaurants.
- Indoor retail stores can now operate at 50% capacity (instead of 25%)
- Playgrounds can open with modifications found on the CDPH Website
NOTE: Capacity or maximum occupancy are numbers that are established by the San Ramon Valley Fire Protection District.
All businesses will be required to adhere to the Industry Guidance established by the State of California, by business type, that establishes social distancing, safety and sanitation practices.
We will remain in the new tier for at least three weeks before being eligible to move forward. To reach the next tier (Orange), Contra Costa County will need to see a positivity rate of under 4.9% and adjusted case rate of under 3.9 for two consecutive weeks.
To learn more about the State of California’s tier system and what businesses are affected by each tier, go to either the Blueprint for a Safer Economy or the Town of Danville’s COVID-19 reopening information.
