Los Angeles County on Friday announced a new stay order in coronovirus cases to remain out of control in the nation’s most populous counties.
The three-week order will take effect from Monday. This came when the county confirmed 24 new deaths and 4,544 new cases of Kovid-19. The five-day average of new cases was 4,751.
About 2,000 people are hospitalized in the county.
Director of Public Health Barbara Ferrer said, “We know that we are asking so much from so many people who have been giving up for months.” “Acting with collective urge is still necessary if we want to stop this boom.”
The order advises residents to stay in the house “as much as possible” and cover the face when going out. It prohibits gathering with people who are not in their homes, whether publicly or privately.
However, there are exceptions to county services and protests, “which are constitutionally protected rights,” the county health department said in a statement.
Businesses are allowed to remain open but with limited capacity, and the same is true of nail salons and other personal care services.
Beaches, trails, and parks will also be open with safety requirements.
The order, which runs from December 20, is more modest than a statewide closure order in the spring.
