Southern California Keep-At-Dwelling Order Prolonged By way of Mid-January—Hospitals At Full Capability & Hollywood Productions Inspired To Quickly Shut Down

#Roommates, with California continually overwhelmed with COVID-19 cases, a new state ordinance has been enacted to combat the spread of the virus. It just announced that Southern California’s first-at-home order has been officially extended to mid-January – and local hospitals are at their maximum capacity.

@. reports that Southern California has extended its regional home stay order “until the ICU forecast is above or equal to 15%,” said Dr. Mark Ghaly, Secretary for Health and Human Services. Originally announced by California Governor Gavin Newsom earlier this month, the order expired in a few days – but that order will continue until at least January 16. For the next three weeks, the state will re-examine the decision and the relevant virus data daily to determine whether the restrictions need to be extended again. If the numbers change, the stay at home order could be prematurely canceled. However, as the numbers increase, this may not be the case.

Currently, with hospitals diverting care and placing patients in the facility’s hallways, LA County and the rest of Southern California are 0% intensive care occupancy. Although LA County’s public health officials were one step ahead of the state on Dec. 27, indefinitely extending the area’s stay at home order, hospitals in the area have dropped to zero intensive care beds and have not enough space and staff.

“We are excited to see what transfer rates we expect from these celebrations,” said the HHS boss tiredly, an expected increase after Christmas in the next few weeks in this “difficult time”. Dr. Ghaly also pushed for New Years Eve, repeatedly trying to warn Californians to oppose the desire to see 2021 with traditional celebrations. “Things that were a low risk activity a month or two months ago are really high risk today because of the levels of COVID circulating in our communities,” he said.

Meanwhile, the Los Angeles County Department of Health is urging the film and television industries to suspend production for a few weeks amid the ongoing surge in COVID-19 cases across the county. “Although music, television and film productions are allowed,” said the health department, “we ask you to give a few weeks of thought to pausing work during this catastrophic increase in COVID cases. Identify and delay higher risk activities and focus on lower risk activities for the time being, if at all possible. “
