Sierra County, as part of the Greater Sacramento Region, has been under a Regional Stay Home Order since December 10, 2020. The Regional Stay Home Order has impacted our local businesses and inhibited many activities. The Greater Sacramento Region’s ICU capacity has been monitored by the State since we entered the Regional Stay Home Order. The State continues to review regional ICU capacity data and uses ICU capacity projections into the future for four weeks to inform their decisions. The State will notify Sierra County if the Regional Stay Home Order is lifted. There has been no communication to allow the current Regional Stay Home Order for the Greater Sacramento Region to expire.
At this time, Sierra County Public Health Department does not know if the Regional Stay Home Order will end or be extended. While we anticipate hearing from the State soon, we cannot guarantee this. We advise all businesses and organizations to continue to be patient and not preemptively accommodate activities that would go against the current Regional Stay Home Order. Once the County receives notification from the State, all businesses in Sierra County will be notified via an emailed press release to update the status of the Regional Stay Home Order. Until then, please continue to follow all restrictions outlined in the Regional Stay Home Order.
