Blueprint Update: Marin Remains in Tier 1 (Purple Status)

Today, California Department of Public Health (CDPH) provided another update on the Blueprint for a Safer Economy, a statewide plan for reducing COVID-19 and keeping Californians healthy and safe.

CDPH confirmed Marin County’s placement in Tier 1 (purple status), which is the most restrictive Tier of the blueprint.

The following table outlines the requirements for case rates, test positivity rates, and quartile test positivity rates for each tier status, as well as CDPH’s February 9 assessment for Marin County:

  Tier 1
(Widespread)
Tier 2
(Substantial)
Tier 3
(Moderate)
Tier 4
(Minimal)
Marin County
Adjusted Case Rate per 100,000 > 7 4 to 7 1 to 3.9 < 1 15.6
Overall Test Positivity Rate > 8% 5% to 8% 2% to 4.9% < 2% 3.6%
Equity Quartile Test Positivity Rate > 8.0% 8.0% ≤ 5.2% 2.1% 6.4%

In general, for a County to advance to a less restrictive tier, it must (1) have been in the current tier for a minimum of three weeks; and (2) meet criteria for the next less restrictive tier for all three measures for the prior two consecutive weeks in order to progress to the next tier.

You can track Marin’s progress by viewing our Blueprint for a Safer Economy dashboard, which is updated each Tuesday afternoon to reflect CDPH’s calculations.
