On August 28, 2020, California Governor Newsom announced a new tiered system of county monitoring and criteria for re-opening of business sectors. Based on recent data, each county will fall into one of four colored tiers – Purple (Widespread), Red (Substantial), Orange (Moderate) and Yellow (Minimal) – based on how prevalent COVID-19 is in each county and the extent of community spread. Sacramento County was placed Purple/Tier 1 (widespread) for having a daily case count of more than seven per 100,000 people and positivity rate of more than eight percent. Sacramento County’s amended Health Order went into effect on August 31.
