How Full Are Hospitals Near You? ICU Capacity for SF Bay Area
The New York Times has put together a simple-to-use interactive map if you’re curious to see how full hospital I.C.U.s are near you.
Depending on how you draw the map and define the “Bay Area,” I.C.U.s as of December 17th (the most recent update) are reported to be about 84% capacity (compared with 85% for the state and 78% nationwide)

The data updated weekly is reported from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Please note that percentages over 100% capacity happen whenever hospitals report patients beyond their normal limits. It’s common for hospitals to create new “surge” I.C.U. beds when they run out as long as there is enough nursing staff and equipment.
