NEWS: Southern California Has Extended Its Stay at Home Order

There’s been a consistent modification to the health and safety guidelines happening in both theme parks and states as a whole.

Recently, California’s ICU capacity dropped down to 0% on Christmas Day, after a stay-at-home order had already been put in place. While the state has expected that there could possibly be an extension to the order, today the government has confirmed that it will continue through next year.

According to the most recent public health conference, California’s stay-at-home order will last through at least another three weeks until ICU capacity is at 15%. The order will stay in place in the San Joaquin Valley and Southern California.

However, while the situation will be assessed daily, four-week projections don’t show ICU capacity significantly increasing since the demand exceeds the capacity currently. However, 0% capacity does not mean that there are zero beds available. It means that those specific regions are in “surge” capacity on average.

At this time, the order remains in Southern California, so that doesn’t necessarily mean it could stretch on the full three weeks. If the above projection factors and requirements are meant, then it could be a shorter period of time.
