Santa Ana, Calif. (January 25, 2021)–Officials with the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) to day ended the Regional Stay at HomeOrder, lifting the order for all regions statewide, including Southern California. Four-week intensive care unit(ICU) capacity projections for the Southern California Region are above 15% ,the threshold that allows regions to exit the order. The state’s press release may be found here.

This action allows all counties statewide to return to the rules and framework of the Blueprint for a Safer Economy and color-coded tiers that indicate which activities and businesses are open based on local case rates and test positivity. As a result, the County of Orange was moved was moved into the Purple Tier, the state’s most restrictive tier based on our current adjusted daily case rate and test positivity rate (seven day average with seven day lag.) Services and activities, such as outdoor dining and personal services, may resume immediately with required modifications. 

CDPH has a list of Activity and Business Tiers that are open, closed or open with modifications with respect to each county on the Blueprint for a Safer Economy website. Orange County residents may search for a business or activity type by visiting https://covid19.ca.gov/safer-economy/ and typing in “Orange” in the County field, entering the business or activity type, and clicking, “GET LATEST STATUS.” 

Because case rates remain high across most of the state, the state’s Hospital Surge Order remains in place to prevent hospitals from becoming overwhelmed. The Limited Stay at Home Order, which limits non-essential activities between the hours of 10 p.m. and 5 a.m., expires with the Regional Stay At Home Order ending. 

The Orange County Health Care Agency has also updated its Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) on the Orange County’s Health Officer’s Revised Orders and Strong Recommendations section of its website to reflect the new tier status.
