Besides eateries, Newsom said indoor wineries, tasting rooms, movie theaters, family entertainment centers, zoos, and museums should close now. Those that can should offer outdoor areas of service. Bars must close all operations.
Newsom said there have been increases in the rate of positive cases and instances of community transmission.
“We’re seeing an an increase in the spread of the virus,” the governor said. “That’s why it’s incumbent upon all us to recognize soberly that Covid-19 is not going away any time soon.”
Thirty of the 58 counties that are on the state’s monitoring list will need to close fitness centers, places of worship, offices for non-critical sectors, personal care services, hair salons and barbershops, and indoor malls under the new order.
The California Department of Public Health reported 8,358 new cases and 23 new deaths on Monday. There are a total of 329,162 cases and 7,040 deaths in the state.
Hospitalizations for Covid-19 have increased by 28% over a two-week period, according to the governor.
California is one of almost three dozen states in which cases are rising, including Florida, which has seen unprecedented case numbers.
At least 35 states are seeing a rise in new cases compared to the previous week, according to Johns Hopkins University data.
Across the world, 12.9 million people have tested positive for the virus.
But precautions have been met with heavy backlash from many officials and residents and some governors have stayed away from statewide mask orders, including Florida.
People need to ‘follow the rules’
Miami Mayor Francis Suarez said on CNN’s “New Day” on Monday that the numbers are “out of control.”
Americans need to follow the rules on social distancing and wearing masks, which are required for citizens in public in the city of Miami, the mayor said.
“If they don’t follow the rules, things are going to continue the way they are going,” he said.
Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms said on CNN that Kemp had not criticized other cities in Georgia for issuing mask mandates.
“I think that it’s unfortunate that when we know the science says wearing a mask is one of the easiest ways to stop the spread, that we had the leader to our state taking exception with it,” she said.
Miami’s Suarez said officials need to have a consistent message at the local, state and national levels.
“A lot of the decisions have been pushed down to local officials that probably should have been done at the federal and state levels,” he said.
“There’s a total disconnect between what is happening and being said out of Washington and even Tallahassee and what is happening in some of these communities right here,” Miami Beach Mayor Dan Gelber said.
The moves to undercut Fauci come just days after he gave an unvarnished look at his relationship with President Donald Trump, including that they have not spoken in weeks.
During a webinar with the Stanford School of Medicine, Fauci said the pandemic is “clearly the most challenging” public health crisis he’s ever dealt with, including HIV, the Ebola virus, anthrax and Zika virus.
“We haven’t even begun to see the end of it yet,” Fauci said of the novel coronavirus.
‘This thing is just about everywhere’
Across the country, health officials are sounding the alarm over the number of infected patients seeking medical care.
In Florida, 8,038 patients are hospitalized across the state with the primary diagnosis of coronavirus as of Monday morning, according to numbers released by the state’s Agency for Health Care Administration. At the peak of the pandemic in New York, the highest number of hospitalizations for Covid-19 was 18,825.
Florida’s three most populous counties, Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach, are experiencing the highest numbers of coronavirus-related hospitalizations.
In Broward County, home to Fort Lauderdale, there was a 279% increase in hospitalizations overnight, the agency reported.
In the past 13 days, Miami-Dade County has seen a 65% increase in the number of Covid-19 patients hospitalized, a 67% increase in the number of ICU beds being used and a staggering 129% increase in the use of ventilators, according to the latest data released by Miami-Dade County government.
Across the state, there are more than 7,500 patients hospitalized with the virus, state data showed Sunday. In Orange County, where Disney World reopened over the weekend, more than 540 patients were in hospitals.
Leah Carpenter, CEO of Memorial Hospital West in Pembroke Pines, a community in Broward County, said the hospital has canceled all elective procedures and converted those surgical spaces into temporary ICUs.
“Basically, we’re creating space in every inch of the building as needed,” she said.
In Los Angeles County, health officials reported more than 3,300 new cases Sunday — the second highest daily case count in the last week. There are nearly 2,100 people hospitalized, a number “substantially higher” than hospitalizations a month ago, officials said.
Texas reported 8,136 new cases, down from the record 10,351 new cases reported on Saturday. County Judge Lina Hidalgo, the executive overseeing Harris County, the largest in Texas, called on Sunday for a stay-at-home order to be issued.
And in Arizona, Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego told CNN that health care professionals are reporting they are “already tired” and worried about additional strains on hospitals stemming from the July 4 holiday, even as the city is already seeing record-breaking ventilator usage.
“Here it’s a much longer kind of hospital stay, which takes that bed out of circulation,” he told CNN. “So if you get people coming in and coming, it just adds pressure on the system.”
There was a glimmer of good news.
