SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — California is lifting its stay-at-home order for the 13-county Sacramento region, which includes Nevada County.

Gov. Gavin Newsom said Tuesday the region’s coronavirus hospitalizations have stabilized sufficiently to allow the region to be the first in the state to exit the order imposed last month as virus cases exploded.

The move means restaurants may again serve diners outdoors, hair salons and other businesses can reopen, and retail stores can serve more customers.



The San Francisco Bay Area, the Central Valley and Southern California all continue to have more pronounced shortages of ICU space in hospitals and remain under the order.

California is averaging 42,000 new virus cases a day and has recorded 3,500 virus deaths in the last week.
