Sacramento County Current Tier

SACRAMENTO COUNTY GOES RED

As of Wednesday, March 17, 2021 Sacramento County is in RED Tier.

Under the red tier, businesses are allowed to resume operations indoors, including:

  • Indoor dining with 25% occupancy.
  • Movie theaters and family entertainment centers with 25% occupancy.
  • Museums with 25% occupancy.
  • Fitness centers and gyms with 10% occupancy.

Retailers and grocers are also allowed to bring their maximum capacity up to 50%. The designation also sets out new incentives for school districts to reopen for in-person instruction.

Reopen Safely ​

In support of our business community, Sacramento County is providing the following information from the State of California.

Follow the Employer Playbook for a Safe Reopening to help plan and prepare for reopening your business.

The playbook includes detailed information on:

  • When and how an employer must report a COVID-19 positive employee.
  • What is defined as an outbreak.
  • Guidance for employers who may be considering whether to suspend operations due to COVID-19 spread in the workplace.

All businesses and ​facilities must follow the items listed here before reopening:

  1. Perform a detailed risk assessment and create a worksite-specific protection plan.
  2. Train employees on how to limit the spread of COVID-19. This includes how to screen themselves for symptoms and when to stay home.
  3. Set up individual control measures and screenings.
  4. Put disinfection protocols in place.
  5. Establish physical distancing guidelines.
  6. Establish universal face covering requirements (with allowed exceptions). See CDPH guidelines (PDF).
  7. Post your completed checklist so everyone can know the steps you’ve taken. Feel free to add more safety measures to the ones included in your industry’s guidance.

Employer Policies and Resources

It’s important that employees with C​​OVID-19 know they should stay home. Your sick leave policies need to support that. Workers also need safe and reliable childcare options during the COVID-19 response. See information on:

Counties are required to remain in an assigned tier for a minimum of three weeks and must meet the criteria for the next tier for two consecutive weeks before being able to advance to the next tier.

“To advance back into the Red Tier 2, Sacramento County needs to have lower daily case rates. The only way to do that is to do what we know works,” said Sacramento County Health Officer Dr. Olivia Kasirye. “We all have a part in this and we must be committed to social distancing measures in public spaces (6ft apart, wear face coverings, wash hands, etc.) and to avoid gathering with non-household members.”

To learn more about the State’s Tier system and specific allowable activities for Sacramento County, visit the State of California’s COVID-19 Blueprint for a Safer Economy website.
