California Lifts Stay-At-Home Order

The order covered the San Francisco Bay Area, San Joaquin Valley, and Southern California regions

CALIFORNIA: The state will now return to a policy of county-by-county restrictions, with most counties operating from the most restrictive tier. The state will allow businesses like nail salons and outdoor dining to open, also outdoor religious gatherings. However, bars that only serve beverages cannot open.

With the improved condition across the state, California officials lifted regional coronavirus stay-at-home orders on Monday. California is also lifting a 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. curfew.

Dr. Tomás Aragón, director of the California Department of Public Health and state public health officer “Together, we changed our activities knowing our short-term sacrifices would lead to longer-term gains. COVID-19 is still here and still deadly, so our work is not over, but it’s important to recognize our collective actions saved lives and we are turning a critical corner.”

Gov. Gaven Newsom had imposed the order in December when infections surged statewide also and in regions where ICU capacity fell below 15%. The order covered the San Francisco Bay Area, San Joaquin Valley, and Southern California regions.
