CLARIFICATION - Blueprint Update: Marin In Tier 1, but Nearing Tier 2

Yesterday, we provided an update on the Blueprint for a Safer Economy, sharing Marin County’s data for case rate, test positivity rate, and equity quartile test positivity rate.

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.

The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) will allow for accelerated progression if the Health Equity Quartile Test Positivity Rate meets the threshold for two tiers less restrictive than the current tier. For example, Marin County is currently in Tier 1 (purple status) with a case rate that is declining but is still greater than 7. If both the county wide and the Health Equity Quartile test positivity rate stays below 5% for two consecutive weeks, Marin could progress to Tier 2 (red status).

  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 8.9
Overall Test Positivity Rate > 8% 5% to 8% 2% to 4.9% < 2% 2.4%
Equity Quartile Test Positivity Rate > 8.0% 8.0% ≤ 5.2% 2.1% 3.8%

Given this factor, Marin County has accumulated 1 week of metrics towards a less restrictive tier (Red Tier) due to the health equity accelerated progression. If the data continues hold, CDPH could announce Marin as eligible to move into Tier 2 (red status) on February 23, allowing more businesses to reopen the following day. 

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.
