The governor extends the regional stay at home order for the southern California region. That includes San Luis Obispo county. California health and human services secretary Mark Ghaly making the announcement yesterday. The state extends the stay at home order issued by the governor on November 19th. Dr. Ghaly says the number of cases of corona-virus is surging in southern California and the San Joaquin Valley.
Dr. Ghaly says the numbers are consistent with what he and the governor have been predicting recently. He says hospitalizations have increased 36% over the past 14 days. ICU hospitalizations have increased 35% over the law two weeks, but that’s regional. Northern California has fewer hospitalizations than southern California. Dr Ghaly’s entire hour long address is available on YouTube, if you’d like to see it.
What it means to San Luis Obispo county is more of the same. The stay at home order which the governor issued November 19th is extended.
