SOUTHERN REGION SHUTS DOWN ! Not good news for the Christmas Holiday and businesses

As part of the Southern Region, Inyo and Mono counties were set to go into Governor Gavin Newsom’s stay-at-home order as of 11:59 p.m. Sunday, December 6, according to CBS, Los Angeles.

“The order goes into effect Sunday night in order to be in place by Monday morning,” state Dr. Tom Boo, Mono County’s Public Health Officer. “In addition to more ICU patients there apparently were some corrections at the hospital level and the state decided to remove pediatric ICU beds which was, reportedly, the biggest reason for adjustment.”

Under the new effort to slow the spread of COVID-19, regions were to adhere to the most stringent orders when the available capacity of that region’s Intensive Care Units fell below 15-percent. The Southern Region hit 13.1-percent Saturday, down from 20.6-percent on Thursday, December 3. The order closes specific businesses and limits others.

The stay-at-home order will be in effect for three weeks.

According to Boo, in addition to the Southern California Region, the Central Valley and Bay Area regions also are facing the shut-down orders.

To see the extent of the restrictions, see California Back to Square One on our website.

Is Mammoth Mountain still Open?

Reply to  Earl Duran

Earl, yes Mammoth Mountain is open. You might want to give this article in the Los Angeles Times a read: At these California ski resorts, slopes are open, but what about lodging? I suspect many of those with RV/Motorhomes will feel free to come up in them as well, especially… Read more »

I think Eastern Oregon has the right idea – secede to Idaho, maybe Inyo and Mono should look into getting out of Kommiefornia ans joining Nevada…

Yeah, we all know there’s no such place as Eastern Ca. Bay area people like Newsom think the ‘High Sierra’ is So. Lk. Tahoe (also East Sierra and they don’t know that either). They also think everybody is flown to L.A. not Reno for emergency care. Not that it would… Read more »

It makes no sense to lump us in with the SoCal morons – they all are in the Purple and going downhill fast – we could have zero cases and 100% availability of ICU beds and still be ordered to lock down because they can’t or won’t listen….

I’ve lived in the area since 1979 so this is not rant about us vs. them. I do not know if people have already been transported out of the area or not but it won’t take much to overwhelm our 2 hospitals with very few options available. As for your… Read more »

The first death in Mammoth was transported to Renown; died alone, face-timing family members. At least back then transport out of the area was an option. It is NOT going to be an option now, where would they go that isn’t already overwhelmed ? I think it is safe to… Read more »

They’re certainly living up to their name. The owner sounds like a gifted leader (sarcasm). Thanks!

Another pizza joint I won’t be visiting from here on out. Thankfully there’s better pizza elsewhere anyway.

What it comes down to is peoples lives or the almighty dollar. Shut it down and save lives. We are all struggling financially. Let’s all be adults about this and be smart and safe and get through this.

Yes! Shut it down, shut it down, shut it down. Once in a lifetime opportunity for people like me with load of cash on the sidelines. Please shutdown your businesses so me and my banking friends can buy them for pennies on the dollar. We can’t guarantee we will keep… Read more »

Does this include Mammoth mountain?

Reply to  Harold

We’re uncertain. We’re looking into it. But don’t be surprised if, somehow, the mountain has some special kind of waiver. Whether they do or don’t won’t stop people from coming here. At least it hasn’t in the past, has it? We’ll let everyone know when we find out something.–SWM

Sure….the governor’s office says get out n enjoy the outdoors…go skiing or snowboarding…but the state agency where I work won’t let me come to work for the next three weeks because I am “nonessential personnel”. Hypocrisy at it’s finest
