Current tier assignments as of March 2, 2021

Tier assignments may occur any day of the week and may occur more than once a week. Select a county to see what region it’s in.

All data and tier assignments are based on results from week ending February 20, 2021. See how tiers are assigned and change, as well as county historical data (California Blueprint Data Chart) at the California Department of Public Health guidance page. Regional ICU capacity is now calculated using the total number of adult ICU beds in hospitals with an emergency department and does not include neonatal or pediatric ICU beds. Since the Regional Stay Home Order ended on January 25, 2021, the regional ICU capacity no longer includes an adjustment for the percentage of COVID-19 positive patients in ICU.

Infections by group

The distribution of confirmed COVID-19 cases reveals significant disparities within California’s overall racial and ethnic demographics, with Latino and Native Hawaiian / Pacific Islander groups having a disproportionate number of cases relative to their population in the state. Additional COVID-19 race and ethnicity data is available.

Note: Percentages may not add up to 100% due to rounding. Ethnicity is only available for a subset of the total number of deaths as reported by law enforcement.
