After nearly a month of implementing the statewide stay-at-home order, Governor Gavin Newsom details a plan to reopen the state. But he says there are six key indicators that will need to be implemented before lifting restrictions on the current order.
California Public Health Director, Sonia Angell, explained the guidelines during Newsom’s daily press conference on Tuesday afternoon. If all guidelines are followed, and the curve continues to decline then Newsom will reevaluate the stay- at-home order in two weeks, but there will be restrictions.
The six indicators for modifying the stay-at-home order:
1.) The ability to monitor and protect communities through testing, contact tracing, isolating, and supporting those who are positive or exposed.
2.) The ability to prevent infection for people who are at risk for more severe COVID-19.
3.) The Ability of the hospital and health systems to handle surges.
4.) The ability to develop therapeutics to meet the demand.
5.) The ability for businesses,schools, and child care facilities to support physical distancing.
6.) The ability to determine when to reinstitute certain measures, such as the stay-at-home orders.
