Greater Sacramento Region poised to exit stay-at-home order, several counties say – KCRA Sacramento

Gov. Gavin Newsom announced Tuesday that the Greater Sacramento region has been cleared to exit the state’s stay-at-home order.”We’re starting to see some stabilization both in ICUs as well as stabilization in our positivity rate. We’re also starting to see the rate of growth for hospitalizations beginning to decline,” Newsom said. “Today, effectively immediately, we’re pulling the Sacramento Region out of the stay-at-home order.”The exit moves counties in the Greater Sacramento region back into a tiered-system, which loosens reopening restrictions based on hospitalization and transmission rates.The California governor made the announcement on Twitter hours after multiple county officials said the state would lift the stay-at-home orders later Tuesday.The decision to clear the region is based on the four-week projection of 19.1% ICU capacity, newly elected Sacramento County Board of Supervisor Chair Sue Frost said. According to state guidelines, a region has to be above 15% to exit stay-at-home orders. Frost said the announcement was made during a Tuesday meeting.”This is the first step back to reopening our County. Look for a new public health order from the Public Health Department and more details later today!” Frost wrote in a Facebook post.A revised health order for Sacramento County is expected to be released tomorrow that would reopen some indoor and outdoor operations under reduced operational capacity, county officials said.Sacramento Mayor Darrell Steinberg commented on Newsom’s announcement, reminding people to “stay vigilant and socially distant so we can continue our recovery.”The Butte County Public Health Department also announced the same news in a release.”With the lift of the RSAHO (Regional Stay-At-Home Orders), it is important to note that the Blueprint for a Safer Economy’s tier based system is still in place.
