STAY AT HOME ORDER LIFTED
Santa Ana and Orange County are no longer in a Stay at Home Order and have returned to the Purple Tier of COVID-19 restrictions, which allows outdoor dining, hair salons to open with modifications and other limited operations.
Officials with the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) today ended the Regional Stay at Home Order for all regions statewide because four-week ICU capacity is above 15%. This allows counties to return to the rules and framework of the Blueprint for a Safer Economy and color-coded tiers that indicate which activities and businesses are open based on local case rates and test positivity.
While there are positive signs that the virus is spreading at a slower rate across the state, the COVID-19 pandemic is far from over. It is still critical that Californians continue to wear masks when they leave their homes, maintain physical distance of at least 6 feet, wash their hands frequently, avoid gatherings and mixing with other households, follow all state and local health department guidance, and get the vaccine when it’s their turn.
The Limited Stay at Home Order curfew, which limits non-essential activities between the hours of 10 p.m. and 5 a.m., expired with the Regional Stay At Home Order.
STREET SWEEPING TICKETS TO RESUME FEB. 2
With the end of the Stay at Home Order, the City of Santa Ana will resume issuing street sweeping tickets on Tuesday, Feb. 2, 2021.
The City is not restarting street sweeping tickets immediately in order to ensure residents are aware that tickets will be starting again.
EVICTION MORATORIUM EXTENSION
State lawmakers today announced a deal to extend the statewide residential eviction moratorium through June 30, 2021. The legislation must be approved this week in order to go into effect before the current moratorium expires on Feb. 1.
More details will be available after the eviction bill is approved.
The federal Centers for Disease Control already extended its temporary halt on residential evictions until at least March 31, 2021. For more information, go to: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/covid-eviction-declaration.html
The OC Public Health Agency has opened two Super Point of Distribution Sites for vaccinations in Anaheim and Aliso Viejo, with plans to open three more. Vaccines are BY APPOINTMENT ONLY and are currently being provided to healthcare and emergency services workers and people age 65 and older.
