The California Department of Public Health released its updated metrics Tuesday, with Los Angeles County’s figures once again significantly increasing, keeping it in the state’s most restrictive tier.
Though L.A. County’s positivity rate is 5.3%, which meets the qualifications to move to the next tier, its case rate is significantly above the threshold at 20.6 per 100,000 residents, and its adjusted case rate is 13.5 — nearly double what is required to enter Tier 2 — according to the state data based on results from the week ending Nov. 10. The case rate is adjusted depending on the county’s testing volume.
