Cluster Action Initiative

The Cluster Initiative will take the most significant action within the cluster, moderate action in the area surrounding the cluster to stop the spread, and precautionary action in the outlying communities.

The initiative will divide clusters and the areas around them into three categories with successively greater restrictions within each one: Red - Cluster Itself, Orange Zone - Warning Zone, Yellow Zone — Precautionary Zone.

The enforcement of the zones will go into effect as soon as October 7 and no later than October 9. The new rules will be in effective for a minimum of 14 days. Fines for the sponsors of mass gatherings in violation of state public health rules will be increased to $15,000.
