Statement on State Extension of Regional Stay at Home Order in Bay Area

January 9, 2021

Santa Clara County, CA—In a statement issued by the California Department of Public Health, the State has extended its Regional Stay at Home Order​, which was originally set to expire on January 8, due to the region’s ICU bed capacity remaining below 15%.  All current restrictions will remain in place until the Bay Area’s four-week ICU projection shows a capacity of greater than or equal to 15%.  The Bay Area’s current ICU capacity is 3%.

In Santa Clara County, the current ICU Bed Capacity, including surge capacity ICU beds, is 6%. With the current surge of COVID-19 cases, deaths and hospitalizations, the County expects to be under the restrictions of this State order for some time.  It is more critical than ever to stay at home, wear a mask if you must leave home for essential activities, and keep a distance from those outside your households.
