California’s Roadmap To Modify The “Stay at Home Order”

California’s "Back To Normalcy Plan.”-April 14, 2020

Until we build immunity, our actions will be aligned to achieve the following:

  • Build the capacity to protect the health and well-being of the public

  • Reduce social, emotional and economic disruptions

  • California’s six indicators for modifying the stay-at-home order are

  • The ability to monitor and protect our communities through testing, contact tracing, isolating, and supporting those who are positive or exposed

  • The ability to prevent infection in people who are at risk for more severe COVID-19

  • The ability of the hospital and health systems to handle surges

  • The ability to develop therapeutics to meet the demand

  • Ensure our ability to care for the sick within our hospitals

  • The ability for businesses, schools, and child care facilities to support physical distancing

  • Prevent infection in people who are at high risk for severe disease

  • The ability to determine when to reinstitute certain measures, such as the stay-at-home orders, if necessary.

“Shelter At Home” Frequently Asked Questions

www.smcgov.org/shelter-place-faqs


SM County Health Officer Statement

www.smchealth.org/health-officer-statements


Clarification of Terms

County officials are using the term "Shelter In Place." The State's Order is called" Shelter at Home." As many of you may know, this term has historically been used in "Active Shooter" situations or Toxic Spills. It implies that you must remain exactly where you are until the all-clear is given, and it is safe to leave. This is not what the County or Statewide Order mandates. Therefore, we will use the term "Shelter At Home" when referring to the current orders in place.

San Mateo County Temporary Moratorium on Evictions

A temporary moratorium has been placed on all COVID-19 related residential evictions for the non-payment of rent, in all 20 cities and unincorporated areas, in San Mateo County. The Board of Supervisors voted unanimously to prohibit landlords from evicting tenants who are unable to pay rent due to the impacts of the COVID-19, through at least May 31, 2020. Tenants will have up to 180 days after the regulation’s end to pay delayed rents. The eviction moratorium is unique, in that board actions are generally restricted to unincorporated lands governed by the county. Paramount to the decision was to prevent exacerbating our homeless epidemic, and the threat to public health evictions would impose while under a statewide “Shelter at Home” order. San Francisco has passed a similar moratorium. The San Mateo City Council passed a moratorium prohibiting evictions on small businesses and non-profit organizations. housing.smcgov.org/frequently-asked-questions?

San Mateo County Temporary Moratorium on Evictions

A temporary moratorium has been placed on all COVID-19 related residential evictions for the non-payment of rent, in all 20 cities and unincorporated areas, in San Mateo County. The Board of Supervisors voted to prohibit landlords from evicting tenants who are unable to pay rent due to the impacts of the COVID-19, through at least May 31, 2020. Tenants will have up to 180 days after the regulation’s end to pay delayed rents. The eviction moratorium is unique, in that board actions are generally restricted to unincorporated lands governed by the county. Paramount to the decision was to prevent exacerbating our homeless epidemic, and the threat to public health evictions would impose while under a statewide “Shelter at Home” order.
