Plumas County moves to red tier status

Plumas County Public Health Director Andrew Woodruff announced yesterday that the county  received notification that it will move into the Red Tier. As of Wednesday morning, Lassen County remains in the purple tier.

“We get to move forward to the red tier,” Woodruff told the Plumas County Board of Supervisors during its Feb. 16 meeting. “A lot of things change. Most notably indoor dining with modifications.” He also mentioned that gyms are able to open at 10 percent capacity, and retail increases to 50 percent. “We will make sure that there is access to all of the information on our website. It’s really exciting,” he added.

The Red Tier is the second most restrictive tier of the state’s four-tiered plan. Plumas has been in the purple, most restrictive tier. According to state guidelines, the county will be required to remain in the red tier for a minimum of three weeks before it could be considered for a movement into the moderate orange tier.
