The Central and South Coasts remain in the state’s red COVID-19 reopening tier, but are close to moving to orange, who allows for expanded reopenings.

The Tri-Counties had 105 new cases Tuesday. Ventura County had 33, Santa Barbara County 30, and San Luis Obispo County 42. The three counties have had more than 133,000 cases since the start of the pandemic.

Four additional deaths have also been reported in the region, with two in Ventura County, and two in Santa Barbara County.

While the three counties haven’t quite met all the metrics yet for long enough to make it to the orange tier, Los Angeles and Orange Counties have met the milestones which allow them to make the move this week.
