Riverside County has announced that outdoor events, including sporting events and concerts, may resume with limited spectators starting April 1. The number of spectators allowed is dependent on the county’s color-coded tier of the state’s reopening framework.
While Riverside County is currently in the Purple Tier of the state’s reopening framework, the county’s metrics have been moving downward for several weeks towards the Red Tier. This week, the county’s adjusted case rate is 8.3 new cases per 100,000 residents and the percentage of positive tests is currently 4.1 percent (this is known as the positivity rate). To move to the less-restrictive Red Tier, adjusted case rates must be between four and seven cases per 100,000.
On April 1, the following will be allowed based on which tier of the state’s reopening framework Riverside County is in:
Physical distancing and masking are required for all tiers.
Health officials remind residents to get a PCR COVID-19 test to identify cases for isolation and containment, as well as to help reduce the county’s adjusted case rate.
“As we continue to recover from this pandemic, we’re encouraged to see more places and events reopening in our county,” said Chair Karen Spiegel, Second District Supervisor. “One way to help reopen even more places is to get a PCR COVID-19 test. It helps us slow the spread of the disease, and also helps meet the state’s metrics.”
