SACRAMENTO, Calif. – California Health and Human Services Secretary, Dr. Mark Ghaly, will host a video conference to provide an update on COVID-19 in the state.

During Dr. Ghaly's video conference, he is expected to extend strict stay-at-home orders in areas where intensive care units are running out of beds, according to The Associated Press.

Gov. Gavin Newsom warned residents Monday to brace for the impact of surge upon surge from recent holiday travel. Intensive care units in Southern California and the San Joaquin Valley have no capacity remaining.

Newsom said it was self-evident his stay-home order would be extended Tuesday in most of the state. Newsom said the state is heading into a new phase it’s been preparing for as it sets up hospital beds in arenas, schools and tents, though it is struggling to staff them.
