ICU capacity in Sacramento Region drops below 15-percent, stay-home order issued




As expected, ICU hospital bed capacity in the Sacramento region has fallen below the trigger point of 15-percent and the stay-home order has been issued. The order will go into effect on December 10 at 11:59 p.m.

The order will be in effect for three weeks starting tomorrow. If the region's ICU capacity increases about the 15-percent threshold, the order will be lifted. 

Previously the Southern California and San Joaquin Valley regions have been ordered to follow the guidelines.
