Essential City Services Continue as County Returns to Purple Tier
The emergency action announced Monday by Governor Newsom and state health officials places 28 counties, including Orange County, into the most restrictive (purple) tier of the Blueprint for a Safer Economy. The change in status, which goes into effect Tuesday, is in response to statewide increases in COVID-19 cases.
All essential services in the City of Newport Beach will continue uninterrupted, as they have throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. We will continue to emphasize education when it comes to maintaining the critical behaviors necessary to effectively combat the virus during these upcoming winter months. We will continue to work closely with our health care partners, including Hoag Hospital and the County of Orange.
The health of our community is our top priority. We ask everyone to stay vigilant, continue to wear face coverings and wash hands frequently, and limit contact with those outside your household during the upcoming holidays.
