While San Luis Obispo County remains in the state's red (substantial) tier, for now, data show that the county's case rate has increased to a level that would put the county back into the more restrictive purple (widespread) tier. However, Public Health officials say the case rate would need to remain at this level or get worse for another week before the county would have to move back to purple.
