Governor Orders Statewide Directive for All Californians to Stay at Home

California Governor Gavin Newsom announced Thursday evening that he was issuing a statewide order for all residents to stay at home to help slow the spread of the coronavirus.

The governor said that while the order cannot be enforced legally, he believes Californians will do what is right and what needs to be done. Newsom said this is a moment when we have to make difficult decisions.

Newsom said that a state analysis of the situation shows that as many as 56 percent of people in California could become infected with the coronavirus during the next eight weeks.

He urged residents in the state to follow all advisories and directives including practicing social distancing and going to stories or pharmacies to get needed supplies when necessary.
