The Monterey Peninsula is getting its first shelter specifically for single homeless women and families with children, including single fathers. According to the most recent homeless census, 35 percent of those without a place to call home are women and 25 percent are families in Monterey County. But that census was a year ago. After months of COVID-19, that number is expected to grow.

A stay-at-home order will go into effect for the Bay Area after the region’s intensive care unit (ICU) capacity fell below 13% Wednesday, according to state data. The order is triggered when a region falls below 15% ICU capacity. Santa Cruz County officials said the new regulations will take effect Thursday, December 17 at 11:59 p.m.

With over 1 million total confirmed COVID-19 cases and surging, California is pumping the brakes on reopening. We checked in with Dr. Allen Radner for the fourth time since the beginning of the pandemic. He’s Chief Medical Officer of Salinas Valley Memorial Healthcare System and an infectious disease specialist.
