Newsom Installs Regional Stay-at-Home Orders Based on Hospital Capacity
According to a Politico report, Governor Gavin Newsom is reportedly going to announce regional stay at home orders based on hospital capacity levels.
In parts of California, where Covid-19 cases are surging to a degree where the hospital's ICU capacity is in danger of becoming overwhelmed, Californians will be instructed to stay home unless they are carrying out essential activities.
Newsom will break California into five geographic quarters, and stay-at home-orders would last for three.
Regions where ICU capacity falls below 15% will be under a mandated stay at home orders.
Californians would be instructed not to concentrate, playgrounds, salons, and no in-person dining at restaurants, but carry out would still be allowed.
Hotels could only open for support.
Schools could stay open when their region goes on the three-week lockdown.
Weeks ago, Newsom placed 52 of 58 counties into the restrictive purple tier, installing limits on certain business activities, public and private gatherings, and issuing a curfew.
