MADERA COUNTY – On the Way to Red: Madera County Must Meet the Criteria for One Additional Week Before Moving into the Red Tier
For the first time since the introduction of the Blueprint for a Safer Economy, Madera County meets the state’s criteria for the red tier. Based upon the information released Oct. 20,2020, Madera County’s adjusted case rate is 4.8 per 100,000, far below the state’s cutoff of 7 cases per 100,000; and the positivity rate is 3.4, well below the positivity rate cutoff of 8 percent.
Madera County must meet the criteria for one more week before being able to move to the red tier.
“This is great news for Madera County and reflects both the efforts of Madera County residents and the local business community. It speaks to our whole government response which extends beyond Public Health to the Board of Supervisors, Sheriff Department, and others. We must continue to maintain this effort so that we can move to the red tier and continue to progress through the tiers,” said Madera County Public Health Director Sara Bosse.
If Madera County meets the criteria for a second week, the red tier will allow more indoor operations for business with modifications. This includes indoor seating for restaurants, movie theaters, and churches at 25% capacity as well as personal care services.
