VALLEJO, CA – The Governor of California announced a regional Stay Home Order on December 3, 2020. The order would take effect for each region based on their ICU availability. When a region dips below 15% ICU capacity, the stay at home order is triggered. Today at noon it was announced that the Bay Area region, which includes Solano County, is at 12.9% ICU capacity, therefore implementing the state-mandated regional stay-at-home order starting tomorrow, Thursday, December 17 at 11:59 PM.
These orders will remain in effect for a minimum of three weeks. After the three weeks, ICU capacity for the region will be reassessed. If the capacity is above 15%, the stay-at-home order will be lifted. If ICU bed capacity remains below 15% at the end of the three weeks, the order will remain in effect and ICU capacity will be reassessed on a weekly basis from that point on.
The regional order instructs Californians to remain at home as much as possible, only making essential trips such as grocery shopping or traveling to and from a pharmacy.
