Regional stay-at-home order imminent

for web

ANAHEIM, Calif. (Dec. 5, 2020) —  The Southern California region, including Anaheim and Orange County, saw intensive-care bed availability fall below a critical 15 percent threshold on Friday.

The region's ICU availability is 13.1 percent, down from 20.6 percent a day earlier.

Starting Saturday, any region below 15 percent will fall under California's new regional stay-at-home order with major impacts for households and businesses.

To be clear, Orange County DOES NOT fall under the new stay-at-home with Friday's reading, as the order does not take effect until Saturday.

If Saturday's number remains below 15 percent, our county will have to meet the restrictions of the new regional stay-at-home order 24 hours later on Sunday.

There is also a chance ICU availability rebounds above 15 percent on Saturday, giving us more time.

Here is a summary of pending restrictions, with some closures already in place in Anaheim and Orange County under purple Tier 1 restrictions:

  • No gatherings with those outside your household
  • Closure of bars, wineries, breweries, distilleries
  • Closure of nail, hair salons, barbers, other personal care services
  • Closure of playgrounds
  • Closure of indoor recreation facilities
  • Museums, zoos, aquariums
  • Family entertainment centers
  • Limited services
  • Theme parks
  • No nonessential travel

Allowed to stay open:

  • Non-urgent healthcare, including dentists, optometrists
  • Schools already open
  • Childcare
  • Restaurants: takeout only, no more outdoor dining
  • Stores, shopping centers: 20 percent capacity with entry metering
  • Hotels and lodging: essential travel and lodging only
  • Offices: remote except for critical operations where remote is not possible
  • Churches, temples, mosques: outdoor only
  • Critical infrastructure and services (water, power, government)
  • Parks, trails, beaches, other outdoor recreation
