April 29, 2020

San Diego County officials announced today that the county-wide stay-at-home order, which was set to expire at month's end, will be "extended indefinitely."

In response to a question asked about the expiration of San Diego County's stay-at-home order, which was set to expire at midnight on April 30, San Diego Public Health Officer Dr. Wilma Wooten explained that the order would be extended indefinitely. Supervisor Nathan Fletcher then took the podium and stated that certain restrictions will be modified soon, indicating that an announcement regarding health code updates would come tomorrow.

San Diego County officials have maintained it is committed to abiding by California Governor Gavin Newsom's orders regarding lifting stay-at-home restrictions. Yesterday, Newsom announced that we would be moving into Phase 2 of loosening restrictions "in weeks, not months". In response to continued restrictions, protestors have been hosting anti-stay-at-home demonstrations around San Diego for the past two weekends with more scheduled for this weekend.
