    EL CENTRO — Imperial County is getting closer to moving into the red tier in the California Blueprint for a Safer Economy after a dramatic decrease in positive COVID-19 cases over the last six weeks.

    As of last week, the county had dropped down to 7.9 percent in its seven-day positive test rate. This checked off another of the metrics it has to meet before advancing a tier, which is having a positive test rate of 8 percent or lower.
