SACRAMENTO, Calif. - Gov. Gavin Newsom is giving an update on the Covid-19 pandemic.

California officials have imposed a new stay-at-home order on more than 33 million people. The new rules took effect just before midnight Sunday for Southern California and a large swath of the Central Valley.

The rules were triggered when available capacity in the region's intensive care units fell below 15%.

Five counties in the San Francisco Bay voluntarily adopted the new rules because they did not want to want for their ICUs to fill up before taking action.

Some local law enforcement said they would not enforce the rules. Others say they are educating the public and will issue citations only if necessary.

Thankfully, the wind is cooperating much better today in northern California. Our weather is still quite hot for this time of year and very dry. There is plenty of haze and smoke from the Fawn Fire overhead, and it isn't leaving yet.
