COVID-19 News & Updates
1/25/2021 – State Lifts Regional Stay at Home Order, COVID-19 Remains “Widespread”
On January 25, 2021, California lifted the Regional Stay At Home Order across the state – a welcome move for local businesses allowed to expand some indoor and outdoor operations.
Effective immediately, outdoor dining and personal services may resume with required modifications in San Mateo County. The County is not imposing additional local restrictions and remains in alignment with the State.
With certain restrictions lifted, the county returns to Tier 1 (Purple) in the state’s four-tier, color-coded system for loosening and tightening restrictions. Tier 1 is the most restrictive as the COVID-19 virus is considered “widespread” in the community.
The state lifted the order as the Bay Area’s four-week intensive care unit (ICU) capacity projections are above 15 percent, the threshold that allows regions to exit the order.
1/9/2021 – State’s Regional Stay at Home Order Extended
In a statement issued by the California Department of Public Health, the State has extended its Regional Stay at Home Order, which was originally set to expire on January 8, due to the region’s ICU bed capacity remaining below 15%. All current restrictions will remain in place until the Bay Area’s four-week ICU projection shows a capacity of greater than or equal to 15%. The state will assess the region’s ICU projections in the coming days and announce a formal decision on whether Bay Area meets the criteria to exit the order.
