COVID-19 Information



On January 25, 2021, officials with the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) ended the Regional Stay at Home Order, lifting the order for all regions statewide, including the three regions that had still been under the order – San Joaquin Valley, Bay Area and Southern California. Four-week ICU capacity projections for these three regions are above 15%, the threshold that allows regions to exit the order.

CDPH and the Newsom administration confirmed that the entire state is moving back to the color-coded, tiered reopening system. The County of San Luis Obispo is now back into Tier 1 (Purple), meaning that several business sectors may resume outdoor-only operations or reduced capacity for indoor operations
