Public Health Officials Lift Regional Stay at Home Order for All Regions

Jan 25, 2021 6132 Views 0 Comments FacebookTwitterLinkedInGoogle Plus

Today, January 25, the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) ended the Regional Stay at Home Order, lifting the order for all regions statewide, including the Southern California region. Four-week ICU capacity projections for Southern California are currently above 15%, the threshold that allows regions to exit the order. This action allows Orange County to return to the guidelines provided by the Blueprint for a Safer Economy and color-coded tiers that indicate which activities are permitted and which businesses may open. Nearly all counties exiting the Stay at Home Order, including Orange Country, remain in the most restrictive, Purple Tier. Services and activities such as outdoor dining and personal services may resume immediately with required modifications. See the State's website to find the status of activities open in Orange County. 

When will I be Eligible to Receive the COVID-19 Vaccine?

Jan 18, 2021 2101 Views 0 Comments FacebookTwitterLinkedInGoogle Plus

Vaccine distribution is managed through a phased, tiered approach established by the California Department of Public Health (CDPH). Currently, vaccinations are available to Orange County residents and those who work in Orange County who meet the criteria for Phase 1A. This initial phase is limited to frontline healthcare workers, law enforcement first responders in high-risk communities, residents in long-term care facilities and members of the public 65 and older. Only those identified under Phase 1A, who have an appointment, will receive a vaccination at the County’s new Super POD locations. Walk-ups without an appointment cannot be accommodated. Next to be vaccinated will be individuals who have higher risk for severe disease or death (due to age or other factors), who are unable to work at home, who live or work in geographic areas that have been highly impacted, or who are most likely to spread disease to other workers or to the public. Please continue to monitor the County’s COVID-19 vaccination distribution webpage for updated information on future phases. Additionally, the County Emergency Operations Center public information hotline is available Monday through Thursday from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at (714) 628-7085. This hotline is currently being used for all vaccine related information and questions.
