RANCHO MIRAGE, CA (December 3, 2020) - Today, the State of California announced new Regional Stay Home Orders based on a less than 15% ICU availability per region. The State is projecting that our region will fall below the 15% ICU availability as soon as early December.
The Regional Stay Home Order will go into effect within 48 hours in regions with less than 15% ICU availability.
The Order will prohibit private gatherings of any size, closes sector operations except for critical infrastructure and retail, non-essential travel (statewide) and requires 100% masking and physical distancing in all others, stay at home as much as possible to limit the mixing with other households that can lead to COVID-19 spread.
- The Order will remain in effect for at least 3 weeks and, after that period, will be lifted when a region’s projected ICU capacity meets or exceeds 15%. This will be assessed on a weekly basis after the initial 3-week period.
In any region that triggers a regional Stay Home Order because it drops below 15% ICU capacity, the following sectors must close:
- Amusement parks
- Bars, breweries, and distilleries
- Cardrooms and satellite wagering
- Family entertainment centers
- Hair salons and barbershops
- Indoor and outdoor playgrounds
- Indoor recreational facilities
- Limited services
- Live audience sports
- Movie theaters
- Museums, zoos, and aquariums
