California Gov Orders New Regional Lockdown Order

Sacramento’s CBS News affiliate reports:

California Gov. Gavin Newsom announced on Thursday a new regional stay-at-home order for areas where capacity at intensive care units falls below 15 percent.

Newsom announced the new plans amid an unprecedented surge of new coronavirus cases in the nation’s most populous state amid fears that hospitals could be overwhelmed within weeks. The new order divides the state into five regions. Newsom said none of the regions currently meet the threshold for the new rules.

When they do, the state will order them to close hair salons and barber shops, limit retail stores to 20% capacity and only allow restaurants to offer take-out and delivery.
