San Diego County is at risk of moving on to the Purple Level
The San Diego County Communications Office reports to the registry of infection: 7.0 cases per 100 thousand residents.
The San Diego County Communications Office reports that the entity is in danger of falling to Purple Level or, as it is known, the most restrictive level in the state.
What does this mean?
It means that if the infection record is 7.1 for two consecutive weeks there will be no activities in restaurants, gyms or other locations.
The department continues to urge and request the community to follow local safety protocols in order to stop the spread of COVID-19.
Wilma Wooten, County Public Health Officer says that, as residents must act now, it takes all of us to avoid going over this level. Stay home as much as possible, do home office and avoid meetings.
In this context Wooten details that if the region publishes the Purple Tier numbers 2 weeks in a row the county will follow the most restrictive guidelines without exception.
From October 9th to 16th alone, 40 outbreaks were confirmed in the community and the region confirmed 850 deaths.
The California Department of Public Health will evaluate the counties weekly and the next report is scheduled for Tuesday, October 20th.
