As millions of vaccines are being administered, California is gradually reopening its economy. However, it is important to remember that COVID-19 has not disappeared and that we must continue to take steps to prevent its spread. The state has loosened its tiering guidelines, allowing more counties to open up. Level assignments were published weekly, and they have changed over time.
To find out which counties are open and what prevention steps you should take, read on. The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) has provided a list of counties and their respective tier levels. This list is updated weekly and can be found on the CDPH website. The tiers range from purple (widespread) to yellow (minimal).
Each tier has its own set of restrictions and guidelines that must be followed in order for the county to remain open. In addition to following the guidelines set by the CDPH, there are other steps you can take to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. These include wearing a face covering when in public, washing your hands often, avoiding large gatherings, and staying home if you are feeling sick. It is also important to practice social distancing and keep a distance of at least six feet from others when possible. The CDPH also provides emergency information and tips for caring for your home, family, pets, and the environment.
This includes tips on how to prepare for an emergency, how to stay safe during an emergency, and how to recover after an emergency. By following the guidelines set by the CDPH and taking steps to prevent the spread of COVID-19, we can help keep our communities safe and open.
