Blueprint for a Safer Economy – Madera

By | May 20, 2020

California has a blueprint for reducing COVID-19 in the state with revised criteria for loosening and tightening restrictions on activities.

Every county in California is assigned to a tier based on its test positivity and adjusted case rate. At a minimum, counties must remain in a tier for at least 3 weeks before moving forward. Data is reviewed weekly and tiers are updated on Tuesdays. To move forward, a county must meet the next tier’s criteria for two consecutive weeks. If a county’s metrics worsen for two consecutive weeks, it will be assigned a more restrictive tier. Public health officials are constantly monitoring data and can step in if necessary.

Again, these statewide orders are still in place. For more information please visit
