COVID-19 Cases Down, Fresno County Moves up to Red Tier

As of today, Fresno County has moved from the ‘Widespread – Purple Tier’ to the ‘Substantial – Red Tier’ as COVID-19 cases improved in the last several weeks.

Red tier means a county’s COVID-19 cases are between 4 to 7 positive cases a day per 100,000 people or between 5 to 7 percent. Fresno County is currently at 6.2 cases per day.
