Note* Not currently in effect for the Sacramento Region, but is expected to be soon.
For people that are confused:
The Regional Stay Home Order would be in effect for 3 weeks after the trigger and instructs Calfornians to stay at home as much as possible to limit the mixing with other households that can lead to COVID-19 spread. It allows access to (and travel for) critical services and allows outdoor activities to preserve Californians’ physical and mental health. This limited closure will help stop the surge and prevent overwhelming regional ICU capacity.
In any region that triggers a Regional Stay Home Order because it drops below 15% ICU capacity, the following sectors must close:

Sacramento to go back under the stay at home order?
I don't think we've really seen an improvement in ICU ever since it went downhill in December. Not sure if I was just naive, but I didn't realize how bad things would be + for so long.
This might be dumb to ask but with the stay at home restrictions coming in Monday, what kind of activities are you able to do? For example I usually run in the morning around 8, is it still possible to do so? What about going to the park?
https://covid19.ca.gov/stay-home-except-for-essential-needs/ "The Regional Stay Home Order, announced December 3, will go into effect within 48 hours in regions with less than 15% ICU availability. It prohibits private gatherings of any size, closes sector operations except for critical infrastructure and retail, and requires 100% masking and physical distancing in all others. The order will remain in effect for at least 3 weeks and, after that period, will be lifted when a region’s projected ICU capacity meets or exceeds 15%. This will be assessed on a weekly basis after the initial 3 week period."
Most of us live in the "Southern California" region.
My 40th bday is gonna be pretty lame. Stay safe everyone.
I made a map because I haven't seen the state or media make a combined map of the Regional Stay-at-Home Order which went into effect in many counties, and colored tiers that are still in effect in other counties. This is what became effective today, Monday December 7.
