Indoor Dining and Other Restrictions in Place in Sacramento, Surrounding Counties

 On November 13, 2020, Sacramento County moved from California’s Red Tier back into the Purple Tier based on current COVID-19 test positivity rates and the adjusted daily rate of new cases. In Purple Tier counties, the risk level of COVID-19 is considered widespread. Sacramento County’s new categorization means the following business restrictions are back in place:

  • Dine-in restaurants and wineries may open outdoors only, with modifications
  • Bars, breweries, and distilleries are closed

El Dorado, Placer, and Yolo counties have also moved back into the Purple Tier and have the same restrictions in place.

In Sacramento County, as of November 16, 2020, the COVID-19 positivity rate is 6.7% and there are approximately twenty-one new COVID-19 cases per 100,000 people, per day. In El Dorado County, the positivity rate is 3.3% and there are approximately 8.2 new cases per 100,000 people, per day. In Placer County, the positivity rate is 6% and there are approximately 15.7 new cases per 100,000 people, per day. In Yolo County, the positivity rate is 6.7% and there are approximately 17.4 new cases per 100,000 people, per day.

For any county to move back into the Red Tier, the positivity rate must drop below 8%, and the daily rate of new cases must drop to between four and seven new cases per 100,000 people, per day.
