Gov. Newsom: New Stay-at-Home Order Mandate Based on ICU Capacity

California Gov. Gavin Newsom introduced a new regional stay-at-home order that triggers business shutdowns and limits on people’s movement based on hospital ICU capacity by regions.

Here is a summary of pending restrictions and closures:

• 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

The following sectors will have additional modifications in addition to 100% masking and physical distancing:

• Outdoor recreational facilities: Allow outdoor operation only without any food, drink or alcohol sales. Additionally, overnight stays at campgrounds will not be permitted.
• Retail: Allow indoor operation at 20% capacity with entrance metering and no eating or drinking in the stores. Additionally, special hours should be instituted for seniors and others with chronic conditions or compromised immune systems.
• Shopping centers: Allow indoor operation at 20% capacity with entrance metering and no eating or drinking in the stores. Additionally, special hours should be instituted for seniors and others with chronic conditions or compromised immune systems.
• Hotels and lodging: Allow to open for critical infrastructure support only.
• Restaurants: Allow only for take-out, pick-up, or delivery.
• Offices: Allow remote only except for critical infrastructure sectors where remote working is not possible.
• Places of worship and political expression: Allow outdoor services only.
• Entertainment production including professional sports: Allow operation without live audiences. Additionally, testing protocol and “bubbles” are highly encouraged.

The following sectors are allowed to remain open when a remote option is not possible with appropriate infectious disease preventative measures including 100% masking and physical distancing:

• Critical infrastructure
• Schools that are already open for in-person learning
• Non-urgent medical and dental care
• Child care and pre-K

Retail stores and shopping centers are permitted to remain open indoors at 20% capacity, and restaurants can stay open for takeout only. Outdoor recreation facilities can also stay open with modifications, and entertainment production, including professional sports, can operate without a live audience.

Residents in counties affected by the order can still go to the doctor, buy groceries, go on a hike or worship outdoors. K-12 schools that are already open can continue operating indoors as no more than 20% capacity.

The Triggers

The new order will be triggered if a region’s intensive care until bed capacity drops below 15%.

Businesses will have 48 hours to comply once a region meets the threshold.

To be clear, the order is NOT IN EFFECT NOW. The state predicts Southern California would be under these restrictions in “early December.”

  1. One question:
    Will Newsom be making money during this in his position, while other small businesses are forced to close?
    I think it would be fair if he did not bank a salary at the same time. Anyone agree?

  2. He came up with 10,000 positive tests to prove he is the supreme ruler. The hospitals I go into weekly are at low capacity know where near at a stress level. The fear they have created has emptied out the regular patients.The media has been peddling this scare and helping out, aren’t we done with this idiot?

    Like career politicians the salary is not important it’s influence and deal making they are bought off. After 20yrs good old Correa is worth 3x his salary. Surly Newsome’s will be 5x his salary maybe more.
