There has been progress on two corona virus measurements monitored by California public health leaders, who are planting Orange County more firmly in the red tier of the state epidemic monitoring system, determining reopening in each district.
On Tuesday, Oct. 27, the state public health department’s weekly layout update updated the district’s case rate to 5.1 new cases per 100,000 residents, up from 4.6 cases per 100,000 last week.
The role of the test will return favorably to some of the county’s affected areas – so-called Health Role Metric – grew from 5.6% last week to 6%, deducted from the solid gains made since the indicator was introduced earlier this month.
Public health officials are looking at health equality to flag the spread of high COVID-19 in low-income areas where many residents cannot work from home and have no health resources to go to the infection.
Despite losing two counts of corona virus surveillance, Orange County lost ground: the county’s overall test positive – the share of cleaning tests turned positive – has not changed to 3.2% since last week.
These three measurements are the pillars of the state public health department’s four-tier monitoring system, and they are important to public health professionals in controlling which business and public sectors can reopen, and in what capacity they are capable of pulling the epidemic.
Districts must be in one of four layers of purple, red, orange or yellow for at least three weeks and qualify for the next layer every three weeks. Layers are unavoidable and districts where the vertebrae return to the acute position in any metric.
Orange County left the purple layer on September 8 for “widespread” danger There is a red layer for “significant” risk.
