STATE OF CALIFORNIA HEALTH ORDER REMAINS IN EFFECT THROUGHOUT ORANGE COUNTY
On March,19, 2020, California Governor Gavin Newsom and the State Public Health Officer ordered all individuals to stay home except to get food, care for a relative or friend, get necessary healthcare or go to an essential job. The order also dictated individuals employ social distancing practices by maintaining 6 feet of distance from others.
The County of Orange Public Health Order , originally set to expire March 31, 2020, is superseded by the States Executive Order until further notice.
Residents of Orange County are required to stay at home except for essential needs. Because transmission is occurring throughout the county, it is important for individuals and businesses to practice social distancing, as directed by the Governor and the States Public Health Officer, regardless of the expiration of the County Public Health Order.
