BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. – Butte County Public Health (BCPH) announced Tuesday that the county has moved from Tier 2 (red) to a less-restrictive Tier 3 (orange) of the State’s COVID-19 Blueprint for a Safer Economy.

This shift to the orange tier allows more businesses to reopen and some that are already open to increase capacity. This change in tiers is effective immediately for some business sectors in Butte County, according to BCPH.

The data requirements to qualify for Tier 3 include a case rate of 1-3.9 cases per 100,000 residents with a test positivity rate of 2 – 4.9% or less and 2.2 – 5.2% health equity metric.

Health officials said the current Butte County COVID-19 case rate is 3.5 cases per 100,000 residents with a 1.8% test positivity rate and a 1.4% health equity metric.

The Tier 3 (orange) will allow for Bars, breweries, and distilleries may open outdoors with modifications. Offices to be open indoors with modifications, but still, encourage telework. Cardrooms and Satellite Wagering can open indoors with modification, max 25% capacity
