Acting State Health Officer Erica Pan has  issued a 10 p.m.-to-5 a.m. limited stay at home order effective tomorrow, Nov. 21, for the 41 of 58 California counties under the Purple Tier of California’s Blueprint for a Safer Economy, which includes San Bernardino, Riverside, Los Angeles, Orange, Kern and San Diego counties.

The order prohibits all non-essential activities conducted outside the home with members of other households between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m. beginning Nov. 21 and extending until at least Dec. 21. Under the State order, residents can leave their homes, but cannot engage or interact with people from other households.

“This Limited Stay at Home Order will reduce opportunities for disease transmission with the goal of decreasing the number of hours individuals are in the community and mixing with individuals outside of their household,” Pan said. “Every intervention to decrease mixing of households is critical during this unparalleled increase in case rate rise of about 50 percent during the first week in November.”

San Bernardino County will address complaints about violations and potential violations of this and other State health orders on a case-by-case basis primarily through an education and engagement approach.
