Santa Monica Residents Ordered to Stay at Home

40 million California residents ordered to stay home

By Sam Catanzaro

California Gov. Gavin Newsom has ordered 40 million residents to stay in their homes as the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases continues to increase in Los Angeles.

On Thursday, California Gov. Gavin Newsom issued a stay at home emergency order — ordering 40 million residents to stay inside their residences, and immediately limit all movement outside of their homes beyond what is absolutely necessary to take care of essential needs.

The order goes into effect at 11:59 p.m. Thursday until March 31, except for workers of impacted businesses who have an additional 24 hours, according to Newsom.

In a press conference Thursday, Newsom said that residents should leave home for essential activities such as getting food or taking care of family and friends.

This press conference came right after the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (Public Health) released data confirming 231 total cases of COVID-19 in LA County, including two in Santa Monica.

n addition, Public Health announced a second death due to COVID-19. The death occurred in an individual in their 30’s with underlying health conditions from an unincorporated area outside of Pasadena.

“Public Health extends our deepest condolences to the individual’s loved ones in the wake of this tragedy,” said Barbara Ferrer, Public Health Director. “In these uncertain times, one thing is clear; the spread of COVID-19 is broad. Everyone should assume that anyone can have COVID-19, and anyone could unintentionally infect others. Therefore, we are imploring everyone who can, to stay home and stay safe.”
