We are disappointed that we have been assigned to the Southern California area and we continue to ask state officials to review our regional allocation to better represent the ICU’s local capabilities, said Dr. Penny Borenstein, SLO County Health Commissioner. However, COVID-19 is spreading rapidly in the ASO district, and in the last 14 days 11 people in our community have died as a result of COVID-19.
In San Luis Obispo, 14 people have been hospitalized for COVID-19, including one in intensive care, district health officials said Friday. On Friday, eight or one new COVID-19 case was reported in the district.
As part of the new stay-at-home procedure, hairdressing salons and beauty salons will be closed, restaurants will be restricted to transport and the capacity of shops and shopping centres will be limited to a maximum of 20%. Restrictions shall apply for at least three weeks.
The new regulation prohibits private meetings, irrespective of their size.
Hotels and accommodation can be left open to support critical infrastructure, as can offices.
The duty-free schools remain open. Places of worship are limited to field services.
Although SLO County’s ICU capacity is larger than the rest of Southern California, SLO County is still seeing the negative effects of this pandemic at a local level.
The number of local cases has increased dramatically over the past month. The district reported that since the 21st anniversary of the victim’s death, the number of local cases has increased dramatically. He said that six members of the local community died on 11 November from the VIDOC-19. This week another five people died from COVID-19, but the local health authorities are waiting for the death certificates to confirm that they died from COVID-19.
While we encourage people to stay at home as much as possible, with the exception of essential services, schools and outdoor activities to maintain their physical and mental health, we must also focus on supporting our community and reversing the pandemic in the ESL district, Dr. S.
