California lifts regional stay-at-home order for all regions

California lifted all regional stay-at-home orders in the most populous state in the United States, public health officials announced on Monday.

Although three of California's five designated regions, including 12-county San Joaquin Valley, 11-county Bay Area and 11-county Southern California, were still under the order, state officials said four-week intensive care unit (ICU) capacity projections for these regions are above 15 percent, the threshold that allows regions to exit the order.

Southern California's ICU capacity is still at zero to date while the San Joaquin Valley is up to 1.3 percent capacity, showed data released by the state health authorities.

At the start of last December, California Governor Gavin Newsom announced plans for the regional stay-at-home order to contain the pandemic based on hospital capacity, which is designed to be triggered when fewer than 15 percent of beds are available in ICU for a region.

Southern California and San Joaquin Valley regions had been the first part of the state with a population of around 40 million to enter the stay-at-home order since Dec. 6 after the ICU capacity in the two regions dropped below 15 percent.

The 13-county Greater Sacramento Region exited the order on Jan. 12. The rural Northern California region which includes 11 counties has never entered the order.

Officials said that the lift of regional stay-at-home orders will allow all counties statewide to return to the rules and framework of the state's Blueprint for a Safer Economy and color-coded tiers that indicate which activities and businesses are open based on local case rates and test positivity.

The change will allow businesses such as outdoor dining and hair salons to resume operations in some counties in the state. But the majority of the counties are still in the strictest, or purple tier.
