Case Rate Increases

Orange County saw an increase in its case rate in the week ending Oct. 6, further delaying the county’s move into the next “orange” tier.

The county posted a case rate of 5.2 average daily cases per 100,000 residents last week, which was up from 4.4 and 3.6 in the prior two weeks.

The county needs a case rate of 3.9 to move out of the red tier into the orange tier.

The positive testing rate, however, is still within orange tier metrics at 3.1%.

OC has been in the red tier since Sept. 8. If case metrics improve, it could move into the orange tier in two weeks at the earliest.
