Rocklin, Placer County and the Greater Sacramento Region Remain Under Stay-at-Home Order
The Greater Sacramento region will remain under the stay-at-home order after it was officially extended on Saturday, Jan. 2, 2021, by the state. Officials from the California Dept. of Public Health said the area’s four-week projected ICU capacity does not meet the 15% needed to exit the order.
The state’s COVID-19 site lists the following criteria on when a region can exit the order, including accessing projected numbers twice a week moving forward.
- The order will end in a region if the region’s ICU capacity projected out four weeks (from day 22 after the Regional Stay Home Order started in the region) is above or equal to 15%. Each county in the region will then be assigned to a tier based on the Blueprint for a Safer Economy and the rules of the Blueprint will apply again.
- The order will remain in effect in a region if its ICU capacity projected out four weeks (from day 22 after the Regional Stay Home Order started in the region) is less than 15%. The order will remain in effect until the region’s projected ICU capacity is equal or greater than 15%. This would be assessed approximately twice a week.
We must continue to do our part to #StopTheSurge. Wear a mask. Don’t gather. Keep your distance. Wash your hands. Stay home.
