Santa Barbara County remains in the Purple Tier with a lower adjusted case rate, California announced Tuesday.
The county’s adjusted case rate is 16.9 per 100,000 population and testing positivity of 6%. This lowered adjusted case rate allows schools serving TK through 6th grade, with approved safety plans, to return to in-person learning as early as Wednesday.
As local metrics continue to trend downward, the need for more testing could improve weekly adjusted case rate leading to further reopening in the near future, the Santa Barbara County Public Health Department (PHD) said in a press release.
In order to keep schools open, PHD states parents and schools will need to ensure daily screening of kids, keeping them home when not feeling well, limiting gathering with people outside of their households, maintaining social distancing outside of their home, wearing face coverings, and following isolation and quarantine guidance when

The next Dragon Age game will no longer have multiplayer aspects, according to a new Bloomberg report. The game, made by EA-owned studio BioWare, had reportedly “been designed with a heavy multiplayer component,” but it has been turned into a single-player game “in recent months.”
However, we still haven’t seen much of the game since it was first announced with a brief teaser trailer in December 2018, and we don’t know what the multiplayer component could have looked like. Even though the game has been in the works for some time — development started in 2015, reports Bloomberg — there’s still no release date for it just yet, meaning it could be a ways off, and things could change. BioWare recently showed fleeting glimpses of the game in August and in December.
