[START MESSAGE]

BREAKING NEWS:

California Gov. Gavin Newsom announced on November 19th, that the state is issuing a "limited stay-at-home order" due to the surge of COVID-19 cases.

Limited Stay-at-Home Order:
- Applies to counties that are in the Purple Tier
- Must be home between 10 pm and 5 am
- Effective starting 10 p.m. on November 21 until December 21

What you can still do:
- Go to the grocery or drug store while wearing face coverings
- Walk your dog and keep your distance from others
- Get takeout from a restaurant while wearing face coverings

If you live in the counties in and near the Bay Area -- Alameda, Contra Costa, Santa Clara, Santa Cruz, Solano, Napa, Mendocino and Sonoma (more countries may be added later on) -- be aware that they are currently in the purple tier so the limited stay-at-order applies to you.
Stay safe.
