With its low numbers of active COVID-19 cases, Trinity County has moved into the red tier of the state’s Blueprint for a Safer Economy. According to Trinity Health and Human Services, The California Department of Public Health conducts weekly assessment of county case and test positivity trends.

“…if our adjusted case rate and/or test positivity has fallen within a less restrictive tier for two consecutive weekly periods, Trinity County can revert to the less restrictive tier,” a THHS release said late Tuesday, Jan. 12.

The change in tier means changes to some businesses, namely restaurants, bars and wineries.

Restaurants may open to indoor dining with modifications and capacity must be limited to 25 percent or 100 people, whichever is less.

Wineries and tasting rooms may open outdoor only with modifications.

Bars, breweries and distilleries remain closed.

Retail businesses are to reduce capacity by 50 percent.

Places of worship must limit indoor activities to 25 percent, or 100 people, whichever is less.

Hotels, resorts and lodging are open with modifications.

Gyms and fitness centers must reduce capacity to 10 percent and pools, saunas and hot tubs are to remain closed.

The limited stay at home order does not apply once a region is out of the purple tier.

All sectors should refer to the Blueprint for a Safer Economy page on the COVID-19 state website for the guidance under the Red Tier at https://covid19.ca.gov/safer-economy/.
