Bay Area 'stay-at-home' order extended indefinitely until ICU capacity increases

Gov. Gavin Newsom had indicated earlier in the week that he expected regional orders to remain in place in some parts of California.

I think it’s pretty self-evident we are going to need to extend those original dates,” Newsom said, according to KTVU.

Based upon all the data and based upon all the trend lines it is very likely that we’ll need to extend that stay-at-home order.

The order was meant to expire on Friday, but ICU capacity is below the desired 15%, registering at 13.7% on Monday and dropping across the week.

By Friday, the Bay Area had a 3% capacità, according to the Contra Costa Herald.

The extended order maintains restrictions on travel to only essential activities, according to NBC Bay Area. Residents are advised to only leave their homes for medical appointments, shopping, or work.

Travel into and out of the state is also heavily discouraged.

Almost all of California is under stricter orders to stay at home due to the overwhelming numbers.
