Riverside County May Reopen More Indoor Business Next Month Coronavirus According to state data released on Tuesday, February 23, the numbers used to determine when such operations can be resumed continue to decline, as they did in the past few weeks.
The county-adjusted case rate for the week ending February 13 was 16.6, the positive rate was 7.6%, the index of health inequalities, or the positive rate in socio-economically disadvantaged communities was 8.3%.
Each number is an improvement from last week, but Riverside County’s positive rate is the only one within the boundaries to ease restrictions on indoor business.
To advance the state’s color-coded hierarchical system, the county has a 7-day adjusted case rate of 4-7 cases per 100,000 inhabitants, a positive rate of 5% to 8%, and a health equity rate of 2. Required for a week in a row. Between 5.3% and 8%.
When these benchmarks are met, the county moves from the most restrictive purple layer to the red layer, which means a widespread risk of infection, the substantial risk layer.
Red-tier counties can resume more indoor businesses.
