Regional Stay-at-Home Order

Temporary closures for three weeks

On December 3, Governor Newsom announced a new Regional Stay-at-Home Order that affects several regions, including Southern California. The order goes into effect when a region falls below 15% remaining ICU capacity. Southern California is expected to hit that capacity number within days.

The order will remain in effect for at least 3 weeks and, after that period, will be lifted when a region’s projected ICU capacity meets or exceeds 15%. This will be assessed on a weekly basis after the initial 3 week period.

Sectors that will remain open when a region is placed into the stay-at-home order:

  • Restaurants (take-out and delivery only – no indoor or outdoor dining)
  • Retail (20% capacity maximum to reduce exposure)
  • Schools that have received a waiver

Industries that will be temporarily closed when a region is placed in the stay-at-home order:

  • Indoor and outdoor playgrounds
  • Indoor recreational facilities
  • Hair salons and barbershops
  • Personal care services
  • Museums, zoos, and aquariums
  • Movie theaters
  • Wineries
  • Bars, breweries, and distilleries
  • Family entertainment centers
  • Cardrooms and satellite wagering
  • Limited services
  • Live audience sports
  • Amusement parks

Additionally, all non-essential travel is temporarily restricted statewide. The order also prohibits private gatherings of any size, closes sector operations except for critical infrastructure and retail, and requires 100% masking and physical distancing in all others.

Regions on Thursday announced to be under the 15% threshold have 48 hours to make adjustments.
