State’s regional stay at home order extended

In a statement issued by the California Department of Public Health, the State has extended its Regional Stay at Home Order, which was originally set to expire on January 8, due to the region’s ICU bed capacity remaining below 15%. All current restrictions will remain in place until the Bay Area’s four-week ICU projection shows a capacity of greater than or equal to 15%. The state will assess the region’s ICU projections in the coming days and announce a formal decision on whether Bay Area meets criteria to exit the order.

Mandatory Directive on Travel & Quarantine

https://www.sccgov.org/sites/covid19/Pages/travel-directive.aspx

Travel Is discouraged, especially for non-essential purposes. Travel for leisure or for non-essential business is strongly discouraged and should be postponed until after the current surge in COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations subsides.

Travel involves mixing between regions and households, and because so many areas of the State and United States are also currently experiencing significant surges in COVID-19 cases, travel is discouraged and should be minimized.
