San Diego Countys state-calculated, adjusted case rate is presently 10.8 cases per 100,000 homeowners (as of March 2) and the region is in Purple Tier or Tier 1.
The testing positivity portion is 4.2%, positioning the County in Tier 3 or the Orange Tier. While the screening positivity rate for the County qualifies it for Tier 3, the state utilizes the most limiting metric– in this case the adjusted case rate– and assigns counties to that tier. Therefore, the County stays in the Purple Tier or Tier 1.
The Countys health equity metric, which looks at the screening positivity for locations with the most affordable healthy conditions, is 6% and remains in the Red Tier or Tier 2. This metric does stagnate counties to more limiting tiers but is needed to advance to a less restrictive tier.
