Governor Issues Stay At Home Order Triggered by Regional Intensive Care Unit (ICU) Capacity; Marin Spared For Now

As COVID-19 case rates and hospitalizations continue to rise and threaten to overwhelm the state’s health care delivery system, California health officials today announced a Regional Stay at Home Order that goes into effect if intensive care unit (ICU) capacity drops below 15 percent in a given region.

State health officials are tracking ICU capacity across the state by five regions: Northern California, Bay Area, Greater Sacramento, San Joaquin Valley and Southern California. Marin County falls within the Bay Area region. No regions currently meet this threshold, but some are projected to within the next week.

Current available ICU capacity by region:

  • Bay Area 25.4%
  • Greater Sacramento 22%
  • Northern California 18.6%
  • San Joaquin Valley 19.7%
  • Southern California 20.6%

If the Regional Stay at Home Order is triggered for a region of California, counties in the region will be subject to new restrictions. Residents within that region are required to stay at home as much as possible and minimize mixing to reduce unnecessary exposure, while still being able to do important things like go to the doctor, buy groceries, pick up take out, go on a hike, or worship outdoors. K-12 schools that are already open can remain open and retailers can operate indoors at no more than 20 percent capacity to reduce exposure risk.

Please read the State’s full news release for a list of business modifications and/or closures that will occur when the Regional Stay A Home Order is triggered, and a list of counties within each region.
