The State's Regional Stay at Home Order went into effect on December 7. The Order is effective when a region has less than 15% ICU availability. The Order prohibits gatherings of any size, closes in-person sector operations except for critical infrastructure and retail, and requires 100% masking (with certain exceptions) and physical distancing. The Order will be lifted when a region’s ICU capacity meets or exceeds 15%. This is reviewed by the state on a weekly basis. The S. California Region currently has 0% ICU capacity.
Resources specific to the business community may be found on the City website as well. Stay tuned for more business assistance coming in January.

You will only receive alerts if you were in close contact with someone who tests positive for COVID-19 that also has the app. This is another optional tool to help stop the spread. Learn more
