This alert comes just over one day after Solano County was placed under a stay-at-home order. It went into effect just before 12 a.m. Thursday morning and will last for three weeks.
Many of its neighboring Bay Area counties chose to impose tighter restrictions before the ICU capacity dropped below 15%, triggering the state’s heath order.
