What does the expiration of the local health officer's stay-at-home order mean?

Because Governor Newsom’s statewide order still applies to Placer County, residents must continue to stay home except for essential needs. 

The expiration of the local order aims to remove any confusion over areas of difference between the state order. This transition will allow a local focus on planning for a phased reopening in partnership with local governments, health care, business and other stakeholders, as well as regional and state partners.
