Metrics Update

Riverside County moved further away from possibly being moved to the "yellow" tier.

  • 4.5 adjusted case rate (Last week - 3.6)
  • 2.3% positivity rate (Last Week - 2.0%)
  • 2.9% health equity rate (Last Week - 2.3%)

The county would need to be below all three metrics needed for two weeks before being moved.

However, California is set to lift most restrictions on June 15. The mask mandate will remain in place after restrictions are lifted.
