EL CENTRO — As the COVID-19 numbers in Imperial County are increasing, the likelihood of having fall sports that would begin in December is diminishing quickly.

As of Wednesday, Imperial County was one of nine counties in California that remain in the purple tier in the state’s Blueprint for a Safer Economy. The color signifies “widespread” infection and requires many activities to be heavily restricted.
