Governor Newsom announced another stay at home order, called the Regional Stay Home Order, that would go into effect within 48 hours in regions with less than 15% ICU capacity.  Once triggered, the order will remain in effect for at least 3 weeks and, after that period, will be lifted when a region’s projected ICU capacity meets or exceeds 15%. This will be assessed on a weekly basis after the initial 3 week period.

Solano County belongs in the Bay Area region, and our region’s ICU capacity has not fallen into the level yet.
