Governor Newsom has announced that regions of the state will be subject to a new stay-at-home order if their hospital ICU capacity falls below 15%.
In regions where that happens citizens will be told to remain in their homes unless they are conducting approved “essential activities” and lockdowns would last for 3 weeks.
Newsom announced in a press conference he is dividing the state into five regional geographic zones he says projections show will eventually face the stay-at-order.
These are the current tier level rankings and statistics for the counties in the 209.
