Yolo County Returns to Purple Tier
On January 12, the State of California announced that the Regional Stay Home Order for the Greater Sacramento Region was lifted effective immediately, after meeting projections of ICU capacity of at least 15%. As a result of this State announcement, Yolo County is returning to the most restrictive, or purple, tier based on metrics from the State’s Blueprint of a Safer Economy. Yolo County will remain in the purple tier until at least January 26 and won’t be able to move to the substantial, or red, tier until meeting the red tier’s metrics for two consecutive weeks.
The return to the purple tier allows many local businesses to either increase capacity or resume operations. Effective January 12, the following restrictions apply while Yolo County is in the purple tier:
• Bars and breweries: Outdoors only as long as food is provided. Those seated at a single table are limited to household members only. Tables must be a minimum of 6 feet apart.
• Cardroom and satellite wagering: Outdoors only with modifications
• Family entertainment centers: Outdoors only with modifications
• Gyms and fitness centers: Outdoors only with modifications
• Hair salons and barbershops: Indoors with modifications

Any schools that have already been allowed to reopen for in-person or hybrid learning previously may remain open. Schools that have not yet opened will need to receive a waiver to reopen under the purple tier or wait until Yolo County moves back into the red tier.

A supporting tactic in the County’s ‘Roadmap to Recovery’ is a new heath order requiring members of the public and workers to wear a face covering. The purpose of this order is to provide additional public health protection in settings that present a risk of COVID-19 transmission. Face coverings must be worn in public settings, such as:
- Waiting in line to go inside a store
- Shopping at a store
- Picking up food at a restaurant
- On public transportation (or waiting for it)
- In a taxi or rideshare vehicle
- Seeking healthcare
- Going into facilities allowed to stay open
- Working an essential job that interacts with the public
- Children 2 years and older should be encouraged to wear a mask when around others closer than 6 feet. When they do, they must be supervised by an adult.
