[ARCHIVED] State of California: Blueprint For A Safer Economy

Napa County Logo

On Friday, August 28, 2020, Governor Gavin Newsom introduced the Blueprint For A Safer Economy to become effective at 12:01 AM today, Monday, August 31, 2020. Every county in California has been assigned to a tier based on two metrics: the rate of new cases and the positivity rate. At a minimum, counties must remain in a tier for at least three weeks before moving forward. Data is reviewed weekly and tiers are updated every Tuesday. If a county’s metrics worsen for two consecutive weeks, it will be assigned a more restrictive tier.

The four tiers in order of most restrictive to least restrictive are:

  • Tier 1: Widespread (Purple)
  • Tier 2: Substantial (Red)
  • Tier 3: Moderate (Orange)
  • Tier 4: Minimal (Yellow)

For more information on tier and sector guidelines, visit the CDPH Blueprint Activity and Business Tiers web page.

For more information and State Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) visit the Blueprint For A Safer Economy web page.

  • Tier 2: Substantial (Red)

Additional information will be posted on Napa County’s website as it is received.

The guidance resources below are comprised from sources across the Federal, State and Local level. Just like we experienced with the Shelter at Home Order, the State’s Guidance defines the minimum requirements. As this situation is evolving rapidly, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) and your local Chamber of Commerce may have the most up-to-date documents.

Lastly, updated guidance has been released for Youth and School Settings that can be found here, the areas include:
