CDPH lifts Stay at Home Order

Inyo County Press Release, January 25, 2021 – California Department of Public Health announced today that the California Stay at Home Order has been lifted. Inyo County will remain in the Purple Tier of the state’s Blueprint for a Safer Economy, indicating that the risk level in this county is widespread.

This change will require certain industries to modify their operations in order to remain open.  In order to return to the Red Tier, Inyo’s local data must stabilize and consistently reflect positivity and case rates consistent with the Red Tier thresholds for a two week period.  It will be essential that we all do our individual part by continuing to use face coverings, staying home when ill, practice physical distancing, avoid gatherings and mixing with other households, and washing our hands frequently.

    Newsom is damned if he does and damned if he doesn’t.

    So, significantly our lives haven’t changed, just the orders. The orders were always taken as mere “suggestions” by a portion of the population to make this situation worse. What does any of this mean anymore while vaccines appear to be the new class war, ambulances circle the hospitals like a death-spiraling drain in LA, big business make bank while small businesses suffer, and now the new group-think chatter is how the virus magically disappeared when we got a new president.
    Does anyone else see the delusional two-tier reality with this?
    How about we start saying things like, “We have no solid answers for this pandemic, because we truly do not understand the virus.”, rather than this “make it up as we go along, and then just never enforce anything as we speak out the other side of our mouths inviting everyone and their literal dog up in this area.”??????
    I’m fine understanding I know nothing about this virus. I’m fine knowing no one else truly does either. And I’ve just accepted certain people just are too selfish to care. I’m 100% fine with doing my schooling online, wearing a mask to the supermarket. And the best thing for my mental health, honestly, is staying away from the aforementioned selfish set. You all can have it. Thoughts and prayers, and may the odds be ever in your favor.

    The virus magically doesn’t matter anymore

      Tell that to the thousands who are still dying. Try consoling their families with the news. They will be glad to hear from you.

      Not sure what you’re talking about. We’ve had the stay at home order lifted throughout this pandemic in the past when we hardly had any active cases earlier last year. The numbers are going down because it’s past the Christmas infection time.

      People are still dying and hospitalized across the country.

      For those of us with an IQ above 75, we look at the numbers and science – not politics. And we’ll continue to do that for years to come.

    Thank God Biden got elected. Otherwise, instead of a sudden and inexplicable reopening five days after the inauguration, we might have been locked down for another four years.

    Or maybe it just got to be time for another mask-free lobbyist feast at the French Laundry. The money to fight the recall has to come from somewhere.

    The credibility of Newsom has cratered and that of the public health bureaucracy that is joined at the hip to him is flaming out with him.
