As of Tuesday, Jan. 12, 2021, The Greater Sacramento Region that includes Butte County, ICU bed capacity four-week projection has exceeded 15%, therefore ending the Regional Stay at Home Order (RHSO).
The regional stay-at-home order was issued on Dec. 10, 2020, and was originally planned for 21 days. After the 21 days passed the region’s four-week ICU bed capacity was projected regularly.
This means the counties that were in the Greater Sacramento Region are now back into the Blueprint for a Safer Economy. The color-coded four-tier system determines which businesses and activities may be open. These are based on the case rate and test positivity rate.

Butte County is in the Purple Tier (Widespread or Tier 1). This is the most restrictive tier and requires most businesses and activities to adjust to outdoors only. Restaurants can open outdoor dining again for the first time since December 10th, 2020. Barbershops, nail salons, and hair salons can also open up indoors at a limited capacity.
The State’s limited stay-at-home order (LSAHO) is also still in place for all Counties in the Purple Tier. The curfew from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. is still in effect for all people in the Purple Tier, with few exceptions. The LSAHP will stay in place until the RSAHO has been taken off of all regions of the state.
