Riverside County Is Back In The Most-Restrictive Purple Tier Of Coronavirus Restrictions

County of Riverside

Riverside County officials announced today that the county has gone back to the most-restrictive purple tier of coronavirus restrictions set by the state.

Riverside County had gone into the less-restrictive red tier in September, allowing indoor operations with restrictions.

Now, amid rising coronavirus test rates, the county’s going back to the purple tier.

This means gyms, churches, restaurants, movie theaters, and more have a few days to transition to not being able to hold any indoor operations.

The county will stay in the purple tier for at least three weeks, according to Dr. Cameron Kaiser, the county’s public health officer.

As of Tuesday morning, the aggregate count of COVID-19 cases in Riverside County was 64,075, with 1,272 deaths.

Neighboring San Bernardino County also remains in the purple tier.
