Yesterday evening we shared an email with what we know about the Regional Stay Home Order. Since that time, we have learned that our regional ICU availability has dropped below the 15% threshold.

SAN JOAQUIN COUNTY, Calif. —
The state’s regional stay-at-home order will go into effect for the San Joaquin Valley after the area’s available ICU capacity dropped below 15%.
The California Department of Public Health released the region’s numbers Friday night, but the order won’t go into effect until Dec. 5 at 12:59 p.m.
California Gov. Gavin Newsom’s new stay-at-home order affects five regions with less than 15% availability at intensive care units. The new COVID restrictions will last for three weeks then be assessed weekly going forward as the state tries to slow the spread of surging coronavirus cases.
The Southern California region also fell below 15%. As of Friday, San Joaquin Valley is at 14.1% capacity in their ICU’s, and Southern California is at 13.1%.

The issue of Code Enforcement is before the Board of Supervisors on Tuesday, November 10th, less than a week away!
If you need details, there are plenty on the REPEAL facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/groups/3223193537802645.

If you are concerned, as many of us are about this issue, there are some things that you can do to… Continue reading
