These tiers are designed to give people false hope but these metrics aren't realistic anywhere but the most rural areas. It just sounds better to give people false hope than to say "Theme parks aren't

The problem with California's system is that Santa Cruz is already slipping back to the red category on adjusted cases per 100,000, and if they are like Riverside County, will be given one week to improve their numbers before getting slipped back a color category.  If they go back to red, no boardwalk rides and they have to lay everyone off again.  I know Riverside Country restaurants have closed their dining rooms three times since March and laid off servers/cooks and had spoiled food each time.  There appears to be no limit on how many more times they can shut any of us down either.

Almost no point in opening at all with how newsoms guidelines are. Theme parks are in the green tier and I've never seen any green on any covid map. It's dumb that he did that when florida is working smoothly.

These tiers are designed to give people false hope but these metrics aren't realistic anywhere but the most rural areas. It just sounds better to give people false hope than to say "Theme parks aren't opening until the middle of 2021 when a vaccine is available to a reasonable number of people even though they're not really a source of covid spread but we don't care about that. Also we're following the science® ".

^^Theme parks are the yellow tier.  There is no green tier, which should explain why you've never seen it.  It doesn't exist.  It was intentional, because (paraphrasing), "we will never be entirely safe.".  And he's not really wrong on that point.  At this point, it's like getting toothpaste back in the tube.

The flaw with the tiers is a one size fits all approach.  Newsom touted how San Fransisco was able to move into the yellow tier...with a population of 850,000 and a total area of 46 square miles. As well as the highest housing costs in the country and a median income of $130k. So basically, you don’t actually live in San Fran unless you’re a millionaire.  Of course they can afford to safely stay home.

Totally comparable to Santa Cruz County, with less population (250k), but 445 square miles of land and a median income that is half is much, so people in Santa Cruz actually have to work and travel to get places.  Or larger counties like LA county and Orange County, with 10m and 3m people respectively...

Actually, Orange County is in the red tier, and (at the moment) shows no sign of slipping back.  And I was thinking, "how can they be in red, when so many there are anti-mask?"  But I think the answer lies in what you said about SF:  it's a wealthy area, so they have no issue staying home.

I know Orange County is in the red tier. They will be stuck there, since the odds of a population of 3 million that also spans a much larger area than SF with a lower median income (only parts of OC are high income). LA county will forever be purple for that same reason.

Man, that sucks. I'm sorry they gave you locals false hope for like... 2 days? 🙄 

Maybe you'll get another chance in the spring but I highly doubt it's going to clear out of the red/orange during or shortly after the holidays. As it is, my family doesn't know if there are going to be statewide travel bans and I might not be able to come home for Christmas for the first time in a long time.
