Solano to move Tuesday into less restrictive Covid-19 red tier

Fairfield Daily Republic, by Todd R. Hansen, September 21, 2020

FAIRFIELD — Solano County will move Tuesday into the state’s less restrictive red tier – allowing schools to reopen in two weeks and allowing for more businesses to open as well.

“It looks like Solano will move to the red tier tomorrow,” Jaylene Richards, the Solano County Public Health administrator, said Monday in an email response to questions from the Daily Republic.

“Based on the data we have (at the local level), we thought we would move to red tier next week, but it looks like the state will say that we will move to red tomorrow,” Richards said in the email.

A formal press release is expected to be released after Gov. Gavin Newsom’s anticipated announcement.
