When the Global Pandemic first started the recommended amount of ICU Beds and Staff that should be Available was 20% of the 67 Beds which was 13. That percentage has been reduced to 15% which is 10.
The County has reported as few as 52 ICU Beds Total and as many as 89 Beds Total between February 14th and 19th of 2021.

With only two ICU beds currently available how is this county moving to the red tier by tomorrow? Help me to understand.
Laura, That is a Great question. San Mateo County Supervisors and County Manager Mike Callagy should be able to explain it. Also there is no mention of “B.1.427/B.1.429. California strain COVID-19 will probably account for 90% of the state’s infections by the end of next month, said Dr. Charles Chiu , an infectious diseases researcher and physician at UCSF.” Todays LATIMES.
