The State Order sets minimum statewide restrictions that applies to all parts of California from Del Norte to San Diego County.

The County Order is more stringent (in certain provisions) than the State Order in order to address our particular facts, circumstances, and challenges. Our order is necessary to control the public health emergency as it is evolving within our County. Without this tailored set of restrictions, scientific evidence indicates that the public health crisis in the County will worsen to the point at which it may overtake available health care resources within our County and increase the death rate.

Where there is a conflict between the County Order and the State Order, then the more restrictive provision controls.
