Alpine County Exits Regional Stay Home Order
January 12, 2021 – SACRAMENTO – Today, the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) released the most recent statistics on COVID-19, including data on intensive care unit (ICU) capacity across the state.
Based on four-week ICU projections, the Greater Sacramento region (of which Alpine County is a part) can immediately exit the Regional Stay at Home Order. Counties within that region will return to the tiering system and rules under the Blueprint for a Safer Economy.

Note that the above site had not been updated as of 1-12-2021 to remove Alpine County from the Regional Stay-at-Home Order and also note that Alpine County is now in the RED TIER because of recent cases.
Please note that it is crucial that we all continue to follow precautionary measures including masking, social distancing, frequent handwashing, and minimizing/avoiding gatherings.
Check with local businesses before heading out to verify that they are open and understand any measures they may have in place to help protect you, other visitors, and their staff.
