On April 14, 2020, California Governor Gavin Newsom stated the six indicators that will need to be in place before any modification to the stay-at-home order can take place. He is working with the Governors from Oregon and Washington to put framework in place to reopen the state. Governor Newsom listed the following:
"California’s six indicators for modifying the stay-at-home order are:
- The ability to monitor and protect our communities through testing, contact tracing, isolating, and supporting those who are positive or exposed;
- The ability to prevent infection in people who are at risk for more severe COVID-19;
- The ability of the hospital and health systems to handle surges;
- The ability to develop therapeutics to meet the demand;
- The ability for businesses, schools, and child care facilities to support physical distancing; and
- The ability to determine when to reinstitute certain measures, such as the stay-at-home orders, if necessary.
