State of California: Regional Stay at Home Order
On Thursday, December 3, 2020, Governor Gavin Newsom announced a new Regional Stay at Home Order that could affect Napa County (as part of the Bay Area Region, as identified in the Order) some time in the next 2 weeks. This Order would go into effect when Intensive Care Units (ICUs) reach less than 15% capacity in the region.
The Regional Stay Home Order would be in effect for 3 weeks after the trigger and instructs Californians to stay at home as much as possible to limit the mixing with other households that can lead to COVID-19 spread. It allows access to (and travel for) critical services and allows outdoor activities to preserve Californians’ physical and mental health. This limited closure will help stop the surge and prevent overwhelming regional ICU capacity. More information about regions, affected sectors and Q & A's can be found on the State of California's COVID-19 website.
In any region that triggers a Regional Stay Home Order because it drops below 15% ICU capacity, the following sectors must close:
Indoor and outdoor playgrounds
Indoor recreational facilities
Hair salons and barbershops
Personal care services
Museums, zoos, and aquariums
Bars, breweries, and distilleries
Family entertainment centers
Cardrooms and satellite wagering
Live audience sports
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.
