  • California Governor Gavin Newsom Announces Regional Stay-at-Home Order Based on ICU Capacity

The lockdown would occur for three weeks, similar to lockdown orders in March. Currently, 51 of the state's 58 counties are in this tier, including L.A. County.

While residents are distraught at the possibility of another lockdown, it has been noted that no regions have been placed into the regional stay-at-home order at this time.

There are five regions, which include: Northern California, Greater Sacramento, Bay Area, San Joaquin Valley and Southern California.

California on Wednesday reported more than 20,000 new coronavirus cases, the most ever in one day.

Bars and personal services such as hair salons will be temporarily closed, and restaurants will only be allowed to offer take-out and delivery. It also means that retailers, with the busy holiday shopping season in full swing, must limit customers inside their stories to 20%.

California has unveiled plans to issue regional stay-at-home orders for areas in the state where intensive care units are expected to fall below a capacity of 15%, with the vast majority of the state expected to meet that criteria within the next few days.

In addition, all non-essential travel is now temporarily restricted statewide.

"The message of today is, as much as you can, be at home", Ghaly said.

As of Tuesday, 592 patients with COVID-19 were in the ICU across the county - excluding the cities of Pasadena and Long Beach - with only 122 total ICU beds still available, according to Public Health data. Newsom also discussed the state's efforts to begin distributing approved vaccines in the coming weeks, saying he expects the state to receive 327,000 doses - enough to treat 163,500 people, as the vaccines requires two doses to be effective - between December 12 and December 15, which will be given to critical healthcare workers and long-term care residents.

The head of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) warned on Wednesday that the Covid-19 pandemic has continued to rage across the US, and that the country faced its grimmest health crisis yet over the next few months, before vaccines become widely available.

Los Angeles County is now under a modified "Safer at Home Order" that bans gatherings, reduces occupancy limits at certain non-essential businesses and closes playgrounds and card rooms.

Los Angeles is the second-largest city in the United States with a population of over 3.9 million.

"It's exactly the same", Comisar said. "Reduce your interactions so we can get this transmission rate down swiftly and we can have a positive impact in our hospitals".

"Right now, with so many cases of COVID-19 in our communities, the risk is extremely amplified", L.A. County Health Officer Dr. Muntu Davis said during Public Health's media briefing last week. Additionally, a record 8,500 people are in hospitals, including more than 2,000 in intensive care units. On Monday, Newsom talked about an order for just counties in the state's most restrictive COVID-19 tier, although such an order would apply to almost all Californians because 52 of the state's 58 counties are now in that category.
