Three more counties moved to the yellow tier in Tuesday’s reassignment of COVID restriction status.
San Francisco, Trinity and Los Angeles counties improved from orange to yellow, indicating “minimal” COVID-19 risk.
Also improving were Inyo and San Luis Obispo counties, which moved from red to orange.
The looser restrictions for those five counties will take effect Wednesday, May 5.
Twelve of the 58 counties remain in the red tier, “substantial” risk; they account for 11% of the state’s population.
The tier-based system of COVID-19 restrictions is likely to be discontinued on June 15, state officials have said.
