Regional stay-at-home order to take effect in San Mateo County

Category: Health & safety

San Mateo County will become subject to the state’s regional stay-at-home order later this week, due to the Bay Area falling below 15% of bed capacity in its intensive care units. The county will join Santa Clara County and other Bay Area counties that had already implemented the regional stay-at-home order on an accelerated basis.

Additional information is on the San Mateo County website. The order takes effect in San Mateo County at 11:59 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 17, and will last at least three weeks.

Under the regional stay-at-home orders, Stanford employees should continue working at home unless approved to be on campus, and those in essential categories should continue to report to work as scheduled.
