Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19)
REGIONAL STAY AT HOME ORDER ENDED JANUARY 25, 2021: WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
The Regional Stay Home Order was lifted on January 25, 2021, as projected ICU availability over 4 weeks in all regions rose to over 15%. Once a region exits the Regional Stay Home Order, counties within that region return to the appropriate tier and rules under the Blueprint for a Safer Economy.
Los Angeles County is moving quickly to align its Health Officer Order with the guidance issued by the state of California and key sectors will be able to reopen immediately.
By Friday, January 29, 2021, Los Angeles County anticipates the reopening of additional key sectors—including outdoor restaurant dining —with additional safeguards in place to protect employee and customer safety as we continue to experience high caseloads and transmission rates. Until Friday, the County will be operating under the Health Officer order of November 25, 2020.
