December 3rd According to a U.S. media report on the 2nd, Los Angeles issued an emergency order in response to the COVID-19 epidemic that night. All residents in the city will be prohibited from leaving home, except for essential workers and the homeless.
According to Los Angeles local media KTLA, the emergency order stipulates that residents cannot leave home immediately, and the previous “safer at home” order has been replaced. People are not allowed to travel by foot, bicycle, motorcycle, car or public transportation. In addition, all non-essential work requiring employee attendance must be closed immediately.
However, the City of Los Angeles also makes a list of necessary jobs to continue leaving the house, and the order does not apply to homeless people. Residents face fines or detention if they violate the emergency order. Mayor Eric Garciti urged the Los Angeles Police Department and City Attorneys to “strictly implement the rules”.
It is understood that many residents have learned this news by email or text message. However, just two hours before the release of the new regulations, Gasiti held a press conference, which was not mentioned.
As of the 2nd, 5,997 new confirmed cases have been reported in Los Angeles County, where the city of Los Angeles is located, and a total of 414,185 confirmed cases have been confirmed in the county; 40 new deaths have been reported, with a total of 7,740 deaths.
