GLENN COUNTY, Calif. — Glenn County has moved from the state’s most restrictive purple tier to the less restrictive red tier of the state’s Covid-19 Blueprint for a Safer Economy. The shift allows more businesses and activities to reopen.

This change in tiers may lead to further school reopening; however, Glenn County must maintain in the red tier for an additional two weeks prior to middle schools and high schools being permitted to open for in-person instruction per State guidance.

Glenn County Public Health said it will be working with their school partners to plan for the return to in-person instruction, if the metric is maintained for two weeks.

"Being in the red tier allows Glenn County to follow the Small County Framework. In this framework, small counties are subject to all existing Blueprint rules (test positivity thresholds, the minimum duration of 3 weeks in a tier before moving to a less restrictive tier, inability to skip over a tier while moving from more restrictive to less restrictive tier designations, etc.) with the exception of new case rate thresholds. The case rate threshold is no longer adjusted per 100,000 population for maintaining tier status," Glenn County Public Health officials said in a news release.

Glenn County has confirmed 678 coronavirus cases and 646 recoveries. For continuing coronavirus coverage, click here.

Some of the biggest changes for Glenn County entering tier 2 (red):

  • Restaurants may reopen for indoor operations at 25% capacity
  • Places of worship may reopen for indoor operations at 25% capacity or less than 100 people (whichever is less)
  • Retail may increase to 50% capacity
  • Gyms and fitness centers may reopen to indoor operations at 10% capacity
