Stay Home Order: What’s the status?

One of the top questions we’ve received recently is, “when can Marin County – and the entire Bay Area – exit the State of California’s Regional Stay Home Order?”

The Bay Area region is scheduled to remain under the Regional Stay Home Order until January 8 at the earliest with potential to extend depending on four-week ICU capacity projections. On Friday, California Department of Public Health (CDPH) will begin issuing four-week ICU projections for the 11 county Bay Area.  

The ICU capacity projections are based on four factors:

  • current estimated regional ICU capacity available
  • measure of current community transmission
  • current regional case rates
  • the proportion of ICU cases being admitted.

CDPH’s projections are calculated daily. Once the Bay Area region's four-week projection shows an ICU capacity of greater than or equal to 15%, the order will be lifted.

Decreasing community transmission and increasing the health system capacity can help a region's projected ICU capacity so they can exit the order.  

You can follow the region’s ICU capacity and order status on the State of California’s Regional Stay Home Order webpage.
