Yes it looks like we are in for a prolonged lockdown again, you can just read the San Jose Merc news item titled "COVID-19 hospitalizations push California’s ICUs to a record low 1.1% available beds: State has just 1.1% capacity, down from 1.4% at start of week" seen here (Web Link)

From the Santa Clara County website here (Web Link) 93% of the County STANDARD ICU beds are full, leaving only about 7%, half the number required to get out of CODE BLUE.

Granted the "SURGE" extra gives us currently 13%.

It still is the lowest available bed count since the COVID dashboard started counting it in May 2020.

What is bad is that some ICU beds are becoming available because people died. In the last month more than 100 people died.

So lets just get used to this being around until the numbers start to improve to the same numbers we had in September 2020.
