Stay-at-Home Order Lifted for Sacramento Region

The public health situation in Northern California is improving. The state lifted stay-at-home orders for 13 counties in the Sacramento region this month, including Alpine, Amador, Butte, Colusa, El Dorado, Nevada, Placer, Plumas, Sacramento, Sierra, Sutter, Yolo, and Yuba.

“We're starting to see some stabilization both in ICUs as well as stabilization in our positivity rate. We're also starting to see the rate of growth for hospitalizations beginning to decline," Governor Newsom said Jan. 12. "Today, effectively immediately, we're pulling the Sacramento Region out of the stay-at-home order."

The end of the stay-at-home order means the Sacramento region has returned to the tiered system and is back in the purple tier. In Sacramento, open businesses include restaurants and wineries (outdoors), personal care salons, and museums, zoos and aquariums (outdoors).

The rest of Northern California — and Southern California — aren’t so lucky. Stay-at-home orders remain in effect for the San Francisco Bay Area, the San Joaquin Valley, and Southern California.
