Governor Announces New Regional Stay At Home Order Today, the Governor announced a “Regional Stay-at-Home Order” that will be triggered if Intensive Care Unit (ICU) capacity drops below 15 percent in a given region. That number will be calculated based on the average of ICU bed availability in each region.
Although not there yet, it is anticipated that the Southern California region, which includes Orange County, will fall below the 15% threshold tomorrow, December 4. Once that happens, regions will have 24 hours to implement the order which will remain in effect for at least three weeks once triggered.
