Updated: January 25, 2021Orange County Moves into Purple Tier: Effective immediately, California’s Regional Stay-at-Home Order has been lifted for all regions statewide. Intensive Care Unit (ICU) projections in the next four weeks exceed the required 15% threshold, allowing Southern California to exit the Order. The State’s press release regarding this announcement may be found here. The Limited Stay-at-Home Order, which limits non-essential activities between the hours of 10 p.m. and 5 a.m., expires with the Regional Stay-at-Home Order ending. Because case rates remain high across most of California, the State's Hospital Surge Order remains in place to prevent hospitals from becoming overwhelmed.As a result, Orange County has moved back to the Purple Widespread Tier 1 of the State’s Blueprint for a Safer Economy. To learn how a sector is able to operate in the Purple Tier in Orange County, visit the State’s website.
