CA Stay-at-Home Order as of Dec 3, 2020

Posted January 8, 2021

Today Governor Newsome announced a new California Stay-at-Home order that is similar to the one issued in March. The new State order contains variances by regions and is triggered by ICU occupancy rates.

Regions will remain in the Regional Stay-at-Home Order status for at least three weeks once triggered. Regions may come out of the stay-at-home order after three weeks if hospital ICU capacity projected four weeks out reaches 15 percent. Then, counties will return to their Blueprint for a Safer Economy tier determined by their case rate and test positivity. If the ICU capacity for a region is less than 15 percent after the three-week period, the ICU capacity will be assessed weekly to determine when the order can be lifted.

Currently, the new order does not alter the existing definition of “Essential Workforce,” which includes construction under the “Sector Index” number 13 in definitions. This does not mean it won’t change in the future. Cities and Counties do have the authority to enforce stricter guidelines as they see fit.

All Local Unions will continue to operate under current Covid-19, OASH, and CDC Guidelines. Local Union offices will continue to maintain daily disinfecting, social distancing, and PPE to ensure everyone’s safety that enter the buildings.

Today’s announcement is another challenge we must all face, but I have no doubt we will get through these tough times and continue to support one another. We will do our best to keep everyone informed on this platform. Be safe and try to keep yourself informed of the events and restrictions in your local area.

In Solidarity,
