Regional Stay Home Orders
As of December 2020, if the Bay Area Region ICU capacity falls below 15%, a Regional Stay Home Order will be called.
The Order would remain in effect for at least 3 weeks. After that period, the region will be assessed twice a week and the Order would only be lifted when the region’s four-week projection of ICU capacity meets or exceeds 15%.
