Blueprint for a Safer Economy 

Current Status

Napa County is assigned to the purple tier.

Blueprint for a Safer Economy

California has a Blueprint for a Safer Economy for reducing COVID-19 in the state with revised criteria for loosening and tightening restrictions on activities. Every county in California is assigned to a tier based on its rate of new cases and positivity. At a minimum, counties must remain in a tier for at least 3 weeks before moving forward. Data is reviewed weekly and tiers are updated every Tuesday. To move forward, a county must meet the next tier’s criteria for two consecutive weeks. If a county’s metrics worsen for two consecutive weeks, it will be assigned a more restrictive tier.

Enforcement Concerns and Complaints

To report violations to the Blueprint for a Safer Economy please complete and submit the county's COVID-19 complaint form or call 707-253-4540.
