Los Angeles County Department of Public Health officials reported more than 10,000 cases of COVID-19 countywide and a 10.3% remaining capacity for intensive care units for the Southern California region. The daily report marks the fourth-consecutive day those numbers have reached an all-time high.
State officials announced a regional stay-at-home order earlier this week, requiring certain business sectors to close completely and others to enforce a 100% mask mandate and reduce patron capacity once the region’s ICU capacity dropped below 15%.
The Southern California region, which includes LA County, fell below this threshold Saturday.
