Read the full story on LATimes.com. California is “the only large state to improve from red to orange COVID-19 community levels of transmission,” state epidemiologist Dr. Erica Pan said in a tweet Monday night. She credited relatively high vaccination rates, as well as indoor masking practices, in helping drive down new coronavirus infections.
The state’s coronavirus transmission level has fallen from “high” to “substantial,” the second-highest tier as defined by the agency. California is now one of only three states — including Connecticut and Vermont — that have fallen into this category, as have the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. The CDC’s scale evaluating coronavirus transmission levels categorizes states as being in one of four tiers: the worst — high — is color-coded as red; followed by substantial (orange), moderate (yellow) and low (blue).
