The latest announcement is what state leaders will say for CaliforniaBlueprint for a safe economy, “Which put a system of color-coded levels of restrictions. As individual counties reached certain case limits, they were allowed to move through the levels.
The tier system was first introduced in August, as the state struggled with an alarming increase in new cases. Mr. Newsom and other state leaders emphasized that the state needed the ability to quickly implement emergency measures if hospitals began to fill up.
