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
  • Personal care services
  • 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)
  • Family entertainment centers
  • Museums, zoos, and aquariums
  • Live audience sports
  • Amusement parks
