Regional Stay at Home Order


Good Afternoon and Happy Sunday Cabrillo Families,

Regional Stay at Home Order
Last week, Governor Newsom announced a Regional Stay at Home Order that will be triggered if Intensive Care Unit (ICU) capacity drops below 15 percent in a given region. That means all sectors other than retail and essential operations would be closed in regions of the State where less than 15 percent of ICU beds are available under a new Regional Stay Home Order
The following day (on Friday), seven bay area counties updated the governor's trigger for citizens of the Bay Area. Rather than waiting until Intensive Care Unit (ICU) bed availability reaches critical levels and delaying closures that are inevitable, the Health Officers for the Counties of Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, San Francisco, and Santa Clara as well as the City of Berkeley are jointly announcing that they will implement the State’s Regional Stay Home Order now.


Superintendent Cammack shared the following in an update to all staff: 

“This doesn't indicate or mandate a significant change in our operations to support and operate distance learning and those related services within FUSD. It should be noted, that in almost all aspects of the orders, guidance, and public statements from health officers at the state and local level, keeping operations open and functional for schools and/or distance learning has been paramount. While these new orders may not mandate or indicate any major change in our overall operations, it does serve as a reminder that we should be extra cautious in our personal and professional practices.”

What does that mean for Cabrillo?

The Cabrillo office will remain open during the stay at home order. In addition, materials pickup will continue as scheduled. Please observe social distancing protocols and do not come on campus unless you are wearing a mask.
