State Lifts Stay-at-Home Orders for All Counties

Restrictions Relaxed as San Bernardino County Returns to Purple Tier

With the state easing out of the post-holiday COVID-19 spike, and ICU capacity increasing throughout the state, including in San Bernardino County, Gov. Gavin Newsom today lifted the strict regional stay-at-home orders issued in December — moving the County back into the previous tier system. San Bernardino County remains in the Purple Tier.

As a result, local restaurants will be allowed to open for outdoor service, personal care services (such as hair and nail salons) may reopen with modifications, retailers may allow more customers into their stores and campgrounds may resume operations, among other changes.

“This is great news for businesses and county residents who have been struggling financially since March 2020, but most especially since December when the State imposed the Regional Stay-at-Home Order,” said Board of Supervisors Chairman Curt Hagman. “This is a huge step forward in our recovery. With the vaccine being rolled out throughout the state, I am cautiously optimistic about the year ahead and encourage residents to get vaccinated as soon as they are able.”

Currently, the county’s adjusted daily case rate is 61.2 per 100,000 residents. It must be at 7 or less before the county can progress to the red tier. The county gets credit toward lowering the case rate by exceeding the statewide median testing rate, so testing is still vital not just for protecting residents from illness but for reopening our economy and getting residents back to work.

The state lifted the stay-at-home order when it calculated the four-week ICU capacity projection for the Southern California Region at 30.8%, which is well above the 15% that triggered the order. ICU capacity in the county has stood at zero for several weeks as holiday gatherings caused case rates and hospitalizations to soar at record levels. Regional ICU capacity has improved to 14.4%.

As a result of the announcement, the following guidelines will be implemented immediately:

  • In-person gatherings, which were previously prohibited, are now permitted for up to members of three households.
  • Restaurants, which previously were limited to take-out and delivery, may now provide outdoor dining. (Limited indoor dining remains prohibited until the County reaches the red tier.)
  • Hair and nail salons, barbershops, and other personal services may now reopen with limited capacity.
  • Grocery stores may expand capacity to 50%, compared to 35% under the prior restrictions. Other retailers may increase capacity from 20% to 25% capacity.
  • Hotels and other short-term rental lodging can serve non-essential patrons with restrictions.
  • Museums and zoos can resume outside operations.

El estado levanta la orden de estadía en el hogar para todos los condados

Restricciones relajadas cuando el condado de San Bernardino regresa al nivel morado

Con el estado alejándose del pico de COVID-19 después de las vacaciones, y la capacidad de la UCI aumentando en todo el estado, incluyendo en el condado de San Bernardino, el gobernador Gavin Newsom levantó hoy las estrictas órdenes regionales de estancia en el hogar emitidas en diciembre, trasladando el condado de nuevo al sistema de nivel anterior. El condado de San Bernardino permanece en el Nivel Morado.

Como resultado, los restaurantes locales podrán abrir para el servicio al aire libre, los servicios de cuidado personal (como peluquerías y salones de uñas) pueden reabrirse con modificaciones, los comerciantes pueden permitir que más clientes entren en sus tiendas y los terrenos del campamento  pueden reanudar sus operaciones, entre otros cambios.

“Esta es una gran noticia para las empresas y los residentes del condado que han estado luchando financieramente desde marzo de 2020, pero sobre todo desde diciembre, cuando el Estado impuso la Orden Regional de Estancia en el Hogar”, dijo el Presidente de la Junta de Supervisores, Curt Hagman. “Este es un gran paso adelante en nuestra recuperación. Con la vacuna que se está aplicando en todo el estado, soy cautelosamente optimista sobre el año que viene y animo a los residentes a vacunarse tan pronto como puedan”.

Actualmente, la tasa de casos diarias ajustada del condado es de 61.2 por cada 100,000 residentes. Debe estar en 7 o menos antes de que el condado pueda progresar al nivel rojo. El condado obtiene crédito para reducir la tasa de casos al exceder la tasa de pruebas medianas en todo el estado, por lo que las pruebas siguen siendo vitales no solo para proteger a los residentes de enfermedades, sino para reabrir nuestra economía y llevar a los residentes de nuevo al trabajo.

El estado levantó el orden de permanecer en casa cuando calculó la proyección de capacidad de la UCI de cuatro semanas para la Región del Sur de California en 30.8%, que está muy por encima del 15% que desencadenó la orden. La capacidad de la UCI en el condado se ha mantenido en cero durante varias semanas, ya que las reuniones navideñas hicieron que las tasas de casos y las hospitalizaciones se elevara a niveles récord. La capacidad regional de la UCI ha mejorado al 14,4%.

Como resultado del anuncio, las siguientes directrices se implementarán inmediatamente:

  • Las reuniones en persona, que antes estaban prohibidas, ahora están permitidas para hasta miembros de tres hogares.
  • Los restaurantes, que antes se limitaban a comida para llevar y entrega, ahora pueden proporcionar comidas al aire libre. (La comida interior limitada permanece prohibida hasta que el Condado alcance el nivel rojo.)
  • Las peluquerías y salas de uñas, los salones de belleza y otros servicios personales ahora pueden reabrirse con capacidad limitada.
  • Las tiendas de comestibles pueden ampliar la capacidad al 50%, en comparación con el 35% bajo las restricciones anteriores. Otros minoristas pueden aumentar la capacidad del 20% al 25% de su capacidad.
  • Los hoteles y otros alojamientos de alquiler a corto plazo pueden servir a clientes no esenciales con restricciones.
  • Los museos y zoológicos pueden reanudar operaciones externas.

    I am 68 years old with an underlining condition and my husband is 70. We would like to sign-up for an appointment to get a vaccine as soon as possible. We have tried going to the website and the county wire but we get, “This site cannot be reached.” There has to be a better way to sign-up.

  6. Edward Rodriguez says:

    The staff at the San Bernardino Arrowhead Health Center were very friendly and explained the process. We did have an appointment and waited less than fifteen minutes that was so great and really great service. I would like to schedule a date for our second dose of the MADERNA vaccine. Please send me the link so I can schedule the date. Our COVID-19 Vaccination record is dated 2/22/2021 for our second dose.

    1. Hi Edward, those links are not yet available, but when they are they will be published on our website here: https://sbcovid19.com/vaccine/locations/second-dose-appointments/#load Thank you for coming to us for your vaccine!

  7. Gwendolyn R Stulz says:

    I live in the high desert and we have at least 50% of restaurants offering indoor dining. Denny’s, Corky’s,
    and many more.including Carls jr I WOULD LIKE THINGS TO GET BETTER. I can not see this happining
    if restaurants are allowing packed dining. I have sent you a message before. I also sent a message to Gov. Newsoms office.

    1. David Faubion says:

      Thank you Gwendolyn Stulz for your timely vigilance for our shared safety. It is wrong that SB County has not replied to your post.

      People can’t or won’t feed themselves, and restaurants have always been a health risk. The live-game markets in Asia, Africa, and elsewhere are a feeding frenzy of sheer reckless idiocy in the category of restaurant eating. We Homo sapiens are a weak, vain species whose day of reckoning is here and now.

      “I could turn and live with animals, they are so placid and self-contain’d, I stand and look at them long and long.”–Walt Whitman

      1. David Faubion says:

        I do not want to imply that countries in Africa and Asia hosting wet markets and gathering the live game for those markets are to be condemned for their agro-economic practice. But we have to give them notice that their approach to food is dangerous for the world writ large.

        However, the current spate of racist hate crimes against Asians, a 150% increase in the USA since the pandemic began a year ago is wrong, based in gratuitous, ignorant psychotic hatred. So, when you observe it, do all that you can to stop it. Hate is easily scared into non-action because the host of it is merely seeking and craving attention.

  8. Nori Day says:

    If the restrictions have been decreased, then why is the Crestline Library still operating on limited hours? And why am I not allowed to go into the vet clinic with my dog? I’ve read nothing which limits veterinary offices.
