Gov Newsom has said that if ICU and hospitalizations don't stabilize or decline purple counties will go back to stay at home orders again with some modifications. He said they will be assessing the situation in the next day or two. #California #COVID19
That would put 51 counties back on a form of shelter-in-place similar to what we experienced in the spring.

This is via the Gov's daily press conference.
They said they will expect a surge to hit hospitals in the next two weeks in the wake of holiday weekend celebrations.

Right now NorCal (not Bay Area), entire SoCal, and Gold Country are areas of concern.

That's the entire incident. Sonoma and Napa.

Smoky skies mean that there isn't a lot of air movement - lo wind. Bad for air quality, good for firefighting.

Firefighters working double shifts due to lack of resources w/25 fires burning.

To the haters telling me "poor taste "to suggest people support small biz in Downtown Napa right now or in future.

Own a small biz and you'd think other wise. Livelihoods are suffering and supporting small biz can help.

For some, their small biz may be all they have left.
Besides, if you know about TOT (tourism tax) you know how important tourism dollars are to our economies. Those tax dollars go back into helping us rebuild, support nonprofits doing fire work, etc.
And finally, if you work in hospitality and say you're evacuated, or you rely on tips and such to make a living and you've already been screwed by covid. You need people to support small businesses right now.

As a hospitality worker I know how this is impacting us.
