CALIFORNIA STAY-AT-HOME ROADMAP
Governor Newsom released information regarding the current stay-at-home order, confirming that there is not a precise timeline for modifying the order and that the State would look at six key indicators to serve as the framework for making that decision.

He also noted that the increased preparedness of our health care delivery system, stay at home order, and the effects of other COVID-19 interventions have yielded positive results in flattening the curve. However, these actions have also impacted the economy, poverty and overall health care in California. Any consideration of modifying the stay-at-home order will be done using a gradual, science-based and data-driven framework, and public places will look different as California continues to make modifications for the safety of our residents.
