Gov. Gavin Newsom said today an extension of the stay-at-home order in parts of California is “likely” but stopped short of making it official. The three-week order issued in early December is set to expire Tuesday for Southern California and the San Joaquin Valley.
In a news conference, he said a potential extension of the order is based on modeling for “four weeks out.”
“Based upon the data that we will collect today, Dr. Mark Ghaly [deputy director for community health for L.A. County] and his team, likely tomorrow, will announce … those stay-at-home orders will be extended.”
He said Ghaly will provide an update Tuesday with more specific projections. The stay-at-home orders for Greater Sacramento and the Bay Area are set to expire on January 1 and January 8, respectively.
