If Covid-19 patients begin to strain resources like hospitals and specifically beds in intensive care units, Gov. Gavin Newsom said he plans to pull back on their reopening ability.
Specifically, the framework would be roughly 40% of hospitalizations and just over 30% of ICU capacity, Newsom said.
Newsom mentioned Imperial County as an example, which recently exceeded their hospital capacity and as such were required to put a pause on reopening.
There are 10 other counties in the state being closely monitored for potential constraints on their resources.
