Starting from the evening of December 6, tens of millions of California residents will be required to comply with the newly issued “home quarantine order” again.
With the capacity of intensive care units in Southern California and the San Joaquin Valley falling below 15%, and triggering the epidemic control mechanism promulgated by the Governor of California earlier this week, residents in these areas will be required to strictly enforce “home quarantine orders” to reduce the surge in coronavirus cases and alleviate local treatment facilities.
The pressure. The new “home quarantine order” will take effect at 23:59 p.m. local time on December 6, and about 27 million residents, including Los Angeles and San Diego, will be affected by the executive order.
This comes after six jurisdictions in the San Francisco Bay Area of Northern California issued a similar order on the 4th, requiring its nearly 6 million residents to enforce the “home quarantine order”, which will take effect tonight. Under the order, businesses that must be suspended include personal services such as beauty and hairdressing, while bars, museums, cinemas and indoor entertainment must also be closed.
In addition, travel in any form will also be prohibited unless necessary, and the duration of the executive order is at least three weeks.
California hit a new high of cases and hospitalizations on Saturday (5th), with local medical institutions reporting more than 25,000 new coronavirus cases and more than 10,200 hospitalizations.
