California's Blueprint for a Safer Economy

California has a new blueprint for reducing COVID-19  with revised criteria for loosening and tightening restrictions on activities based upon the tier that each county falls into.

Solano County as of 10-7-20:

Solano County has remained in Tier 2 (Substantial Red) for more than 14 consecutive days. Schools are permitted to open campuses for in-person instruction.

Tier Status and Schools:

Widespread (purple):

  • Schools are closed for in-person instruction- distance learning is happening

Substantial (red):

  • Schools are closed for in-person instruction- distance learning is happening
  • Can open in-person instruction if county remains in this tier for two weeks

Moderate (orange) & Minimal (yellow):

Schools should follow the California Department of Public Health (CDPH)- COVID-19 INDUSTRY GUIDANCE: Schools and School- Based Programs, updated August 3, 2020 to create a safer environment for your students, families, and staff. This guidance applies to in-person learning and distance learning. 

Some schools may have reopened based on the COVID-19 and Reopening In-Person Learning Framework for K-12 Schools. These schools should follow the guidance on school closure provided in that framework when determining whether to close due to COVID-19 spread.
