Weekly Blueprint Update: Marin Remains in Tier 3

Today, California Department of Public Health (CDPH) provided its weekly update on the Blueprint for a Safer Economy, a statewide plan for reducing COVID-19 and keeping Californians healthy and safe. Announcements about updated tier assignments are usually made on Tuesdays, but this week’s announcement was delayed to Wednesday due to the election.

CDPH confirmed Marin County’s placement in Tier 3 (orang status) for a second straight week. CDPH’s November 4 assessment for Marin County includes:

  • Testing Positivity: 1.0% (decrease of 0.4% since last assessment)
  • Adjusted Case Rate: 2.6 (no change)
  • Health Equity Quartile Test Positivity Rate: 1.5% (decrease of 0.9%)

The following table outlines the requirements for case rates, test positivity rates, and quartile test positivity rates for each tier status. Currently, two of Marin’s three measurements qualifies for Tier 4 (yellow 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 2.6
Overall Test Positivity Rate > 8% 5% to 8% 2% to 4.9% < 2% 1.0%
EquityQuartile Test Positivity Rate > 8.0% ≤ 8.0% ≤ 5.2% ≤ 2.1% 1.4%

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.
