Riverside County's metrics slightly improved compared to last Tuesday's update, however, the county could still be a few weeks away from reaching the yellow tier.
- 3.9 adjusted case rate (Last week - 4.5)
- 2.1% positivity rate (Last Week - 2.3%)
- 2.1% health equity rate (Last Week - 2.9%)
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.
