Good afternoon. Please see the information below and linked. Last night the ICU capacity for COVID-19 patients fell to below 15% capacity in the Greater Sacramento Region, which is the threshold that triggers the State Stay At Home Order for the region’s counties, including Yolo County. Which means that effective tomorrow evening, at 11:59 PM on December 10, we will go into a new Stay At Home Order similar to last March’s order. I will add that based on an update yesterday, the projections were that we might not reach this trigger for another week. The fact that we did overnight is an indication of how much the virus has spread within the community; and how many people are getting sick and requiring advanced medical care.
