LASSEN COUNTY, Calif. – California’s COVID-19 tier changes were small this week. Four counties were promoted to looser tiers Tuesday.

Lassen County is joining Alpine and Sierra counties as the only three in the state’s least-restrictive yellow tier. Inyo County moved out of the most restrictive purple tier and into the red tier. Kern and Lake counties moved into the orange tier, according to the California Department of Public Health.

California’s COVID-19 tiers include yellow, orange, red and purple. Yellow is the least-restrictive tier and indicates minimal COVID-19 spread and allows for nearly all businesses to reopen indoor operations. Physical distancing and face mask requirements must remain in place.

North State counties, aside from Lassen, did not change tiers. Butte, Trinity, Modoc, Siskiyou, and Plumas remain in the orange tier. Glenn, Tehama, Shasta, Yuba and Sutter remain in the red tier. 

In total, 33 counties are now in the orang tier and 21 counties are in the red tier.

We had a nice cooldown compared to yesterday, but we're still warmer than average here in northern California, and the breezes are blowing. We'll have similar highs Friday but the wind will get stronger, and more wind is coming.
