Beverly Hills, CA – Today, California Governor Gavin Newsom announced the State’s plan to issue a Regional Stay-at-Home order to regions that have less than 15% Intensive Care Unit (ICU) capacity.
Los Angeles County is part of the Southern California region currently being reviewed and would have to adopt the new Order for a minimum of three weeks if its ICU rate falls within the threshold.
Until the regional rate is determined, the current LA County Health Order is still in place and the State’s Limited Stay-at-Home Order remains in effect in which all non-essential activities must stop from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. through December 21, 2020.
The Regional Stay-at-Home Order, if adopted in Los Angeles County, would restrict private gatherings of any kind and the following additional sectors (aside from those already part of the current Health Order) would be impacted:
- Hair salons and barbershops;
- Personal care services;
- Museums, zoos and aquariums;
- Wineries, bars, breweries and distilleries;
- Family entertainments centers.
The following modifications would be implemented and require social distancing and face coverings be worn at all times:
- Outdoor recreational facilities could operate without any food, drink or alcohol sales (outdoor camping to be prohibited);
- Hotels and lodging can remain open for critical infrastructure support only;
- Restaurants can remain open for takeout, pick-up or delivery services only;
- Offices can remain open for only critical infrastructure sectors where remote working is not possible;
- Places of worship and political expression will be limited to outdoor services only;
- Entertainment production including professional sports will be allowed without live audiences.
Additionally, sectors considered critical infrastructure, schools already open for in-person learning, non-urgent medical and dental care, childcare and pre-K can remain open with the appropriate protocols in place.
