Most of California goes under limited curfew to curb COVID-19

22 Novembre, 2020, 14:06 | Auteur: Adelaide Bullion

In a tweet on Thursday, Newsom outlined the basics of the order, writing that "Non-essential work and gatherings must stop from 10 p.m. - 5 a.m.in counties in the purple tier".

COVID-19 case rates increased by approximately 50% in California during the first week of November.

Newsom issued a ban on "non-essential businesses" and personal gatherings in the 41 of California's 58 counties in the so-called "purple tier" - the worst category in the state's new color-coded coronavirus alert system. The governor's order was slated to take effect Saturday at 10 p.m. and remain in place through December 21.

About 37 million Californians live in counties now in the purple tier, where the coronavirus transmission rates are high.

While nonessential businesses must close by 10 p.m., restaurants will be permitted to offer takeout food and people can perform some routine activities like walking the dog, officials said. "We may need to take more stringent actions if we are unable to flatten the curve quickly".

"The virus is spreading at a pace we haven't seen since the start of this pandemic, and the next several days and weeks will be critical to stop the surge".

The El Dorado County Sheriff's Office will not be enforcing the state issued curfew order, department officials announced Thursday evening. "It is crucial that we act to decrease transmission and slow hospitalizations before the death count surges". Those counties are now classified within the state's "purple tier", which includes communities where more than 8 percent of COVID tests over the past week have come back positive.

Late last week, the state issued a travel advisory, along with OR and Washington, urging people entering the state OR returning home from travel outside the state to self-quarantine to slow the spread of the virus.

But despite the alarm bells, which we've all heard before, sheriffs, in ever-growing numbers, apparently believe that enforcing Thanksgiving dinner and COVID curfews doesn't make much sense when they're freeing prisoners because of COVID. "We trust in the community and rely on people to assess risk and take precautions as appropriate". They reported more than 13,000 new cases on Friday.
