Mayor Eric Garcetti Warns Of Possible New Stay-At-Home Order; "All Options" On Table

Noting that Los Angeles is currently seeing the highest level of hospitalizations since the pandemic began, Garcetti warned, “These [next two] weeks are absolutely critical. Critical to whether our schools open, whether our economy thrives.”

He reminded residents that “All options remain on the table. We will do whatever we need to.”

If things get worse, said Garcetti, “We’d likely return to a mandated stay-at-home order,” in one or two weeks.

“There are still too many social gatherings. Way too many pool parties,” he said.

“Parents, I need your help,” enjoined the mayor. “I need you to keep your children away from their friends.”

1. I'm hoping it won't be necessary, but I expect that it will.

Going back to the extreme measures will be doubly difficult after the freedom of recent weeks.

4. It happened because a bunch of protests from

idiots with "our rights" "our freedom" rallies went all over the state pressuring officials to open early. So did businesses bitching about lost revenue. Everyone agreed we opened too early and Newsom didn't adhere to the reopening guidelines himself. You were supposed to only open after the numbers of new cases, etc declined for a number of days in a row. These guidelines were not met and restrictions were lifted due to the pressure from businesses, young partiers and right wing nuts. Now we are worse off just as we knew we'd be. I ran a DU poll and 90% agreed we reopened too early.

From May 4th...

"Schools, he said, could reopen for the new academic year as early as “July or August.”

And some loosening of restrictions could be weeks, not months, away, Mr. Newsom said, once again warning that any easing of stay-at-home orders is contingent on officials’ ability to quickly put them back into place if case counts start to rise."

"Stage 3 will be when higher-risk businesses will be able to reopen — again, with modifications. This includes nail and hair salons, gyms, movie theaters and sports without live audiences, as well as in-person religious services.

And Stage 4 will be the end of the state’s stay-at-home order. That will be when concerts, conventions and sports with a live crowd will be allowed to reopen.
Conventions, sports with spectators, and big concerts are still a long way from coming back.

Mr. Newsom said Stage 2 was weeks away. The third and fourth phases, he said, are months away."

He even said Phase 3 was "months away" on May 4th. Then he turns around and allowed local communities to decide and they reopned Phase 3 by June, not MONTHS AND AWAY.

5. Gov Newsom is saying it is the young invincibles that are causing this spike

Gov. Gavin Newsom said Monday the surge in coronavirus cases hitting California was due in part to younger people who might believe “they are invincible” but nonetheless are becoming sick from COVID-19.

These are younger adults — who Newsom called “the young invincibles” — who are testing positive for the disease, a trend that has become apparent as the economy has reopened and working-aged adults return to work and had resumed social gatherings.

As more people go out, nearly 50% of coronavirus cases in L.A. County are among those 40 and under
“So a lot of these younger folks may be coming into hospitals, but with not as acute needs as what we were seeing in the past,” Newsom said. In L.A. County, working-age adults are making up an increasing share of the percentage of those who are hospitalized, while seniors are making up a declining share.

7. Did you see the beach in that post?

Pacific Beach in Sa Diego is party headquarters. A young woman organized protests there and was all over the national news. I found out she is just some stupid part-goer who is selfish and irresponsible and uses words like "my rights" which she only sees as HER right to party and infect those around her. Too many community leaders caved to the pressure of their protest rallies (across the state) in May.

I like Newsom's word for them. Young, self absorbed invincibles.

8. Yeah, the 4th was downright crazy this year.

Soooo many fireworks.

Newsome isn't afraid to call it like it is. I was surprised by the age breakdown

Stay safe.

That confirms it! It makes me even angrier, though.

3. People have given up

Too many people (~40%?) are acting like the virus is over and have stopped trying. No masks, no proper distancing, no sheltering when possible. I keep waiting for state and county gov't to act decisively for the last month, but for whatever reason that hasn't happened. If no one does anything, this isn't going to end well, to put it mildly.

We're going to break 300k confirmed cases today (125k in LA County alone), and the new case growth curve is only going to continue bending upward. State-wide 7-day positivity rate was 4.0% the week before Memorial Day. Now it's around 7.7% and trending up. (9.2% in LA County) State-wide, hospitalizations (including ICU beds) are higher than they've ever been during this crisis.

I try hard not to be "doom and gloom" but that's not easy...

6. LA is our hardest hit county.

It makes sense to pump the brakes.
