California Blueprint for a Safer Economy

As of August 31, 2020, California has a new Blueprint plan for reducing COVID-19 in the state. The Plan 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 for tier assignment including metrics from the last three weeks.

  • A county must meet criteria for the next tier for both measures for the prior two consecutive weeks in order to progress to the next tier. 

Elementary School Waivers

California schools have been closed for in-person instruction since mid-March 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) developed the COVID-19 and Reopening In-Person Learning Framework (PDF) to support school communities as they decide when and how to implement in-person instruction for the 2020-21 school year. The framework authorized local health officers (LHO) to grant a waiver of this criteria, in order for elementary schools to open for in-person instruction under specified conditions. Applicants must satisfy all waiver requirements in order to be granted a waiver. Waivers should be granted or denied pursuant to the process outlined below. See the Waiver Process Overview for details.
