Siskiyou County rolled back to most restrictive COVID-19 reopening 'tier'

Siskiyou County Public Health announced on Monday that the area is being moved back to Tier 1 (purple), the most restrictive level of California's reopening plan.

YREKA, Calif. — Effective Wednesday, Siskiyou County will be rolled back to the most restrictive tier of California's coronavirus plan, public health officials say.

Just last week, Siskiyou County was moved back to Tier 3 (orange). But this week, the county is rolling all the way back to Tier 1 (purple) under the state's plan — the most restrictive level.

Under Tier 1, businesses and services that were previously allowed to open indoors will be limited to outdoor or remote operations:

  • Restaurants: Can open outdoors only with modifications
  • Places of Worship: Can open outdoors only with modifications
  • Gyms and Fitness Centers: Can open outdoors only with modifications
  • Movie theaters: Can open outdoors only with modifications
  • Museums: Can open outdoors only with modifications
  • Family Entertainment Centers: Can open outdoors only with modifications
  • Offices (non-essential businesses): Can work remotely

The following businesses previously allowed to open indoors with capacity maximums may continue to be open indoors with reduced capacity:

  • Retail: Can open with modifications – Max 25% capacity
  • Grocery store capacity must be limited to 50%

The following businesses previously allowed to open with modifications may continue to be open with modifications:

  • Hotels and Lodging
  • Personal Care Services- Hair Salons, Nail Salons, Barbershops, Estheticians, Massage studios; Tattoo parlors, Piercing shops
  • Limited Services- Carwashes, Dry Cleaners, Electricians, Handypersons/general contractors, HVAC services, Landscapers, Laundromats, Pet Groomers, Plumbing services, Janitorial/cleaning services

The following must remain closed:

  • Bars, breweries and distilleries: are prohibited from operating with the exception of those serving sitdown, outdoor meals.

Schools that have already re-opened when the county was in a less restrictive tier do not have to close. However, if a school had not already reopened for in-person instruction, it may not reopen until the county moves back to the Tier 2 (Red) for 14 days.

"To move forward, a county must meet the next tier’s criteria for two consecutive weeks," Siskiyou County Public Health said. "To advance into less restrictive tiers, Siskiyou County needs to have lower daily case rates. The most effective way to do that is to continue to practice preventive measures. We all need to do our part to protect the health and economy of the community."

According to the California "Blueprint for a Safer Economy" website, the vast majority of counties in the state are now on Tier 1 this week, with only a smattering of lower tier counties. Just two counties in central California remain on Tier 4, the least restrictive level.
