California Residents Face COVID-19 Stay-at-Home Order Restricting Movement and Businesses

The county reported 10,528 new cases Sunday and 23 additional deaths. Hospitalizations also reached a new high, with 2,988 patients.

L.A. County has seen an unprecedented spike in coronavirus cases in recent weeks, filling hospitals. Sunday’s numbers underscore concerns that the region has not yet hit its peak as people who were infected over the Thanksgiving holiday test positive or fall ill.

The regional stay-at-home order is the latest attempt to tamp down an unprecedented surge in coronavirus cases and related hospitalizations that officials fear could overwhelm the local health care system.
