Orange County, along with a broader Southern California region, remains under a regional stay home order due to low ICU bed availability. In the coming days the state will forecast the ICU bed availability for our region four weeks from now and decide if the order should be extended.
It's our best guess that the order will be in effect well into January based on the continuing surge in new COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations.
As of Dec. 18, the state reports our region's ICU availability at 0 percent. Orange County's ICU availability to treat COVID-19 patients is also at 0 percent.
