The Capacity Of The Uci Of Southern California Is Submerged Below 15 Percent, Since It Begins The Order Of The House At Home



Residents in Southern California are expected to get a stay-at-home order for three weeks as intensive care unit (ICU) capacity fell below a red line due to growing coronavirus hospitalizations.

Governor Gavin Newsom issued a regional order on Thursday stating that if ICU capacity in any of the state’s five regions went below 15 percent, tough restrictions would be imposed as an emergency brake to curb the disease’s spread.

On Thursday, the ICU capacity remaining for Southern California region was calculated at 20.6 percent by the state’s Department of Public Health. But within 24 hours, this had dropped to 13.1 percent, triggering the governor’s restrictions.

The stay-at-home order goes into effect at 1 p.m. on Saturday, giving local officials 24 hours to carry out the restrictions, according to Orange County Supervisor Don Wagner, KTLA reported. The order across 11 counties would curb commercial activity and mean that people will have to stay at home wherever possible and wear masks outside.
