Orange County’s case rate is flat at 3 cases per 100,000 residents from the week prior, keeping the region within orange tier metrics for the fourth consecutive week.

The county’s test positivity rate dipped from 1.7% to 1.6%, meeting the least restrictive yellow tier’s requirements of less than 2% for the third week.
 
The state last week adjusted its color-coded tier system that would allow counties in the red, orange and yellow tier to increase indoor capacity for certain events, like concerts and weddings, starting April 15 if attendees show proof of full vaccination.
