California breaks record -- again -- for most coronavirus cases in a day, exceeding 8,000

Source: San Francisco Chronicle

California counties recorded 8,086 new cases as of late Monday with all but a few counties reporting daily totals, according to data compiled by The Chronicle. Some counties reported higher-than-normal tallies after not updating their case data over the weekend.

The state’s previous single-day high was 6,449 new cases reached last Tuesday, as California has seen its infection numbers shoot up in recent days due in part to easing of restrictions, social gatherings and outbreaks at a number of prisons, according to officials.

The nine Bay Area counties were reporting 618 new cases on Monday - including nearly 200 at San Quentin State Prison, where an outbreak has swelled to more than 1,000 active cases among inmates. California has reported 223,598 total cases and the Bay Area24,493.

In Los Angeles County, officials announced 2,903 new virus cases Monday, the county’s largest one-day increase to date — pushing its total past 100,000 cases. The county reported 1,710 hospitalized patients, an increase of several hundred from recent weeks.

I wish they would close down again already. This is ballooning.

3. What is Governor Newsom doing? I have been a supporter of him but he needs to order

an immediate lockdown and closure of all bars and restaurants statewide. It's necessary to save lives which are more important than the almighty dollar.

8. He has closed down bars where the numbers have been climbing

In the last seven days we've seen a 45% increase in the total number of cases that have tested positive in the state of California," he said. "We don't like the trend line and that's why this mandatory mask requirement is in effect and why we're using this dimmer switch to start to pull back."

Those trends are why Newsom ordered several counties - Los Angeles, Fresno, San Joaquin, Kings, Kern, Imperial and Tulare - to close bars amid surging COVID-19 cases. He recommended eight other counties, Contra Costa, Santa Clara, Sacramento, Riverside, San Bernardino, Ventura, Santa Barbara and Stanislaus, also close down bars.

Newsom said that concerning coronavirus statistics land those counties on its watch list. Once a county is on a watch list for 14 days, the state will order certain sectors - like bars - to close. If a county is on the list for three to 14 days, the state will recommend, but not require, such closures.

He announced four more counties have been added to the watch list: Solano, Orange, Merced and Glenn counties. See the full list here.

He has ordered all bars, breweries, brew pubs, pubs, wineries and tasting rooms to close. On Edit: In L.A. County but I'm not sure about the rest of the watchlist counties.

All L.A. County beaches are closed for the 4th of July.

10. He is announcing new restrictions tomorrow.

Right now he is warning people not to have ANY family gatherings. Also, he is going to enforce his orders with $$$ from the state. If certain counties won't enforce it than they will not get funds from the state. Good! He caved into pressure from $$$ groups and opened too early. I posted a DU Poll and 90% agreed that he opened back up too soon.

13. California Is The Exact Opposite of Texas

In Texas, the Governor banned local elected officials from imposing mask restrictions. In contrast, in California, some local elected officials are refusing to enforce the State's orders requiring masks in response to pressure from conservative activists.

Abbott’s coronavirus order nixes Austin’s enforcement of face mask mandate

Gov. Greg Abbott’s new executive order related to Texas’ response to contain the spread of the coronavirus eliminates Austin’s and Travis County’s ability to enforce local requirements for people to wear masks.

During a briefing on his new order, which will allow many businesses across Texas reopen their doors on a limited basis, Abbott said his order supersedes any local orders that impose fines for people found violating face mask mandates.

Abbott’s order does recommend people wear face masks in public, but said no local government could issue a civil or criminal penalty to anyone not wearing a mask. Orders issued on April 13 by Travis County Judge Sarah Eckhardt and Mayor Steve Adler had provisions including $1,000 fines for violations of face mask requirements.

At the time, the two officials said they only would ask law enforcement to start issuing fines if they did not see widespread compliance.

14. Yes, I noticed that the Sacramento county sheriff is refusing to enforce the governor's

face mask order and there is widespread flaunting of the order.

4. Caifornia was lucky to keep at bay as long as they did, now its fullscale outbreak,

People only stay confined for so long and we do lack discipline to stay home

6. San Diego didn't record a spike, but we're still shutting down.

Our City and County supervisors are aggressively on top of the COVID situation, and as a result, residents are fairly safe to move about fairly normally with masks and social distancing. It helps that we are a military region, and used to discipline.
We still are anxiously awaiting the time bomb that is the annual Zonie invasion...

7. I live in an over-55 community in Southern California.

These idiots are going to have a Fourth of July party.
We have a picnic ground area, and they somehow think that they can social distance and be safe.

Get a glass of wine or a beer in any of them, and they will forget all about their masks and social distancing.

9. CA Dept Of Health Shows Positivity Of 5.7

Other spiking states are at 15.
Yes, it's going up, but this is a spike that can be managed with targeted closures and mandating of masks.
Would not be surprised to see the latter.

11. I'm surprised people somehow think California would be different

I work in East Los Angeles and other than the Asian population many are ignoring masks. A friend went into a cannabis dispensary in the San Gabriel Valley and he was the only one aside from staff wearing a mask, some people just don't care.

12. There are a lot of people who see states as red and blue.

The folks in these red and blue states are Americans first, and are a lot more alike than different.
