California breaks single-day record for new COVID-19 cases amid sweeping new restrictions

Source: latimes

California officials on Monday pulled what they characterized as an emergency brake, announcing a dramatic rollback of reopening in much of the state as it broke its single-day record for new coronavirus cases. Once the changes go into effect Tuesday, 94% of Californians — roughly 37 million people — will live in counties that are in the strictest tier of the state’s reopening roadmap. Many businesses in those counties will have to suspend or severely limit their indoor operations.

The move came as California recorded 13,412 new cases Monday, according to The Times’ coronavirus tracker. That is the highest daily total since the pandemic began and a sign of how quickly the coronavirus is spreading.

“We are seeing community spread broadly now throughout the state of California,” Gov. Gavin Newsom said.

Among counties in the purple tier, California officials require that the following types of indoor settings be closed to the public: restaurant dining rooms, gyms, dance and yoga studios, movie theaters, museums, zoos and aquariums. Houses of worship can no longer hold in-person services indoors, and most retail stores, indoor malls and libraries can only open to 25% capacity; grocery stores are allowed to open to 50% capacity.

4. California Is Huge. It Is Actually Doing Really Good Job

If you read stories about California that focus on total numbers, that is really misleading given California's size. When you break it down by population, California has done one of the best jobs in preventing COVID-19 based upon population. For example, California has been among the top states in terms of low deaths per 100,000 over the past 7 days:

To put this into context, North Dakato death rate per 100,000 is 20 times higher than California's over the past 7 days.
