Additionally, on January 12, 2021 the Regional Stay-at-Home Order was extended for the Southern California Region, which includes Orange County and the City of Irvine because our ICU capacity remains below 15%. The ICU capacity will be assessed on a weekly basis. If and when weekly ICU capacity projections are equal or greater than 15% the region will be released from the order.
