That is the highest single-day total since testing began.
"In light of the steep surge in positive cases we are now experiencing, and as with other COVID-19 orders created to protect the most vulnerable members of our community, the city of Fresno is asking our residents to voluntarily comply with the state's limited stay-at-home directive", Brand said. He said the idea is to cut off activities and gatherings of people that can promote virus spread.
The curfew applies to counties in the Purple Tier, which imposes state's most restrictive public health guidelines.
But he called the curfew a focused and targeted effort that would allow some activities to continue "because we're fatigued" by months of COVID-19 restrictions.
For more detailed info on the new curfew order, check out the State of California's Official Release. The new health order does not close any businesses. "I haven't seen any data that shows between the hours of 10 p.m. and 5 a.m. that things happen that cause a big spread of covid".
"Yes, I can walk my dog at 11 p.m. if that's your tradition and routine", Ghaly said. Meanwhile, one large question still looming, is who would enforce this new order.
Fauci, asked about the potential of a curfew on Tuesday while receiving an award from San Jose State University, said conditions can vary from county to county and city to city, but that he supported the general premise.
San Diego County Supervisor Greg Cox, in response to the statewide curfew, said, "Look, we know we all want to see this pandemic end".
And, as Eater noted yesterday, Laurie Thomas of the Golden Gate Restaurant Association (GGRA) suggested that a curfew would only further cut into the revenue of the already struggling hospitality industry, and may have the "unintended consequence" of pushing more households to intermingle indoors at home. "We don't have the resources", he said. This is the same as the March stay-at-home order, but applied only between 10pm and 5am and only in purple tier counties that are seeing the highest rates of positive cases and hospitalizations.
"The Fresno County Sheriff's Office will not be out enforcing the limited closure order", Mims said Thursday evening. There have been more than 68,000 new cases in the last week, and almost 350 more deaths.
This Limited Stay at Home Order will reduce opportunities for disease transmission with the goal of decreasing the number of hours individuals are in the community and mixing with individuals outside of their household.
In this image taken during a video broadcast via Zoom, California Gov. Gavin Newsom signs a law on Friday, Sept. 25, 2020, in Sacramento, Calif., that for the first time defines "medical necessity", a move aimed at requiring private health insurance plans to pay for more mental health and drug addiction treatments.
The new stay-at-home order comes as Newsom continues to weather sharp criticism for attending a birthday dinner with at least 10 people at The French Laundry, a Michelin star restaurant in Napa Valley, just days before advising Californians not to host indoor Thanksgiving dinners.
"Bottom line is wear those damn masks out there, socially distance, and the sooner we do that, the sooner we're going to get through this crisis", Gore said.
