UPDATE, APRIL 6: The state has distributed more than four million vaccine doses to communities in the first quartile of the Healthly Places Index. As a result, case rate requirements to enter the red tier changed to between 6 and 10 cases per 100,000 people, requirements to enter the orange tier expanded to between 2 and 6, and yellow tier requirements to less than 2. All counties meeting that criteria, even before the updated metrics, shifted tiers. Click here for more on the updated metrics and what each tier means.
