Govt Officials Consider Curfew For America’s Most Populous County After Weekend COVID-19 Spike

Elected leaders and public health officials are considering instituting a curfew and implementing other restrictions to help slow the spread of coronavirus transmission they say surged in Los Angeles County over the weekend.

 The L.A. Times reports that the county Department of Public Health is expected to pitch a series of strict recommendations to the powerful L.A. County Board of Supervisors this week. According to the outlet, “officials are still pleading with the public to voluntarily take the proper precautions in the hopes that more rules won’t be necessary.” Those safeguards include wearing face coverings, frequent hand washing, and limiting interactions with people outside of one’s household.

“Unless Angelenos do their part, our hospitals will reach a breaking point and will be forced to make difficult decisions,” said Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti in a statement on Sunday.
