California Announces Statewide ‘Stay at Home’ Order to Stop Coronavirus. Here’s What That Means

BY AMY GUNIA 

 

California’s governor has issued a statewide stay at home order in an attempt to stop the spread of COVID-19 in the state after warning that 56% of the population is at risk of getting the coronavirus.

Gov. Gavin Newsom called on all Californians to stay at home, except for essential reasons like buying groceries or seeking medical care.

“We need to bend the curve in the state of California, and in order to do that, we need to recognize the reality, the fact is, the experience we’re having on the ground throughout the state of California… require us to adjust our thinking and to adjust our activities,” Newsom said.

There are 675 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in California and there have been 24 deaths—not counting the Americans who touched down in California on U.S. repatriation flights from abroad. In a letter sent on Wednesday, Newsom warned President Donald Trump that 56% of the population—more than 25 million people—could potentially be infected over the next eight weeks. MORE
