Gov. Gavin Newsom is expected to announce Monday that the stay at home order will be lifted across the state, according to a letter from the California Restaurant Association (CRA).
According to the letter sent to members Sunday, officials with the Newsom Administration informed the CRA that the stay at home orders issued by the state will be lifted for all regions currently impacted by it: the Southern California, Bay Area and San Joaquin Valley regions.
The Northern California and Sacramento regions are not currently under stay at home orders.
The Southern California region includes San Luis Obipso and Santa Barbara Counties. The stay at home order went into effect in the region Dec. 6th and was extended Dec. 29th due to low ICU capacity.
It is unclear why the lockdown is expected to be lifted.
A formal announcement from Gov. Newsom is expected sometime Monday.
