As Cases Surge, More Bay Area Counties Adopt Stay Home Order

This week, Sonoma and Monterey Counties moved to proactively implement the State’s Regional Health Order. The new additions mean more than 36,000,000 California residents and 43 counties are now implementing tighter restrictions to preserve the state’s fragile intensive care unit (ICU) capacity.

Currently, the State’s collective available ICU capacity is only 9%.  For the 11 county Bay Area region, the collective ICU capacity is 16.7%, which is a sharp decline from 26.9% reported on Monday, December 9.  If trends continue, the Bay Area could fall below the State’s minimum 15% capacity and trigger the State’s imposed Regional Stay Home for all 11 Bay Area counties.  Learn more about the Regional Stay Home Order or review the state’s data.

 

 

California Notify

In this time of alarming rises in COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations, it is more important than ever to use all of the tools available to us to stop the surge. Now, smartphone users can opt-in to CA Notify to receive COVID-19 notifications informing them if they have been exposed to someone who has tested positive for the virus.

The technology is available through the Google Play Store on Android devices or through iOS settings on their Apple devices.

CA Notify will alert users if they have been in close contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19. With that information, they can make responsible decisions around quarantine and testing, which is essential for stopping the surge. If you opt-in and get a positive test result, you will receive a code via text message from the California Department of Public Health (CDPH).
