The yellow zone rules previously handled by the county do not require schools to close, but mandate more testing in buildings. Yellow zones do not require any trade closures.

The full yellow zone rules are as follows:

  • Worship houses are defined as 50% of their total capacity, which is outside a cluster zone
  • Mass meetings are limited to 25 people indoors and outdoors, down from 50
  • Indoor and outdoor dining is limited to a maximum of four people per table, with a minimum of 10
  • Schools are open, but 20% of students, teachers and staff are required to test in private buildings

To exit an orange zone, densely populated areas, such as the city of Syracuse, should see their seven-day average of a positive test percentage for the virus fall to less than 2% for three days at the end of a 10-day decline. This is 3% for less populated areas like other parts of Onondaga County.

The percentage to leave a yellow zone is 1.5% for one large city and 2% for other areas.

The government also takes into account other factors such as hospitalization and individual cases.

The seven-day average of positive rates in the yellow zone of Onondaga County was 5.12% as of yesterday, up from 6.58% in the week of November 8th.
