State public health officials have extended a Stay-Home Order for the 11-county Bay Area region, including Sonoma County. The move comes as COVID-19 cases continue to rise and ICU capacity for the larger Bay Area region remains below 15%.
The order will remain in effect until the state’s four-week projections of the Bay Area’s total available ICU bed capacity is greater than or equal to 15%.
Under the extended order, residents are directed to stay at home except for work, shopping, or other essential activities, such as medical appointments.
Under the order:
- Retail operations are allowed to continue at 20 percent capacity, or 35 percent capacity for stand-alone grocery stores.
- Schools that have received waivers are allowed to continue operation.
- Places of worship are permitted to hold outdoor services.
- Restaurants are able to offer take-out, pick up, or delivery.
- Hotels, vacation rentals, and other lodging are only allowed to offer accommodations for those coming to the area for essential work or for COVID-19 mitigation and containment measures.
- Outdoor recreation is allowed.
The following operations are required to remain closed:
- Hair salons and barbershops

- Movie theaters (except for drive-in theaters)
- Wineries, bars, breweries, and distilleries (except for operations related to production, manufacturing, distribution, and retail sales for off-site consumption)
