Gov. Newsom Mulling Curfew For California

newsom2

California Governor Gavin Newsom said he’s considering imposing some form of curfew to help slow the spread of Covid-19 after a surge in infections forced the state to tighten social-distancing restrictions in 40 of 58 counties.

“We’re considering the notion of a curfew,” Newsom told reporters at a Covid-19 briefing on Monday. “We are assessing that.” He added that he will examine studies from France, Germany and Saudi Arabia on the efficacy of curfews before making a decision.

California is tapping the “emergency brakes” under its Covid-19 protocols after seeing a doubling of new cases in the past 10 days, Newsom said. In just the past week, the number of counties in the highest tier for infection rates, purple, jumped to 41 from 13. That includes most all of Southern California and coastal areas, encompassing 94 percent of the state’s population. San Francisco County is among 11 counties in the second tier, red, while just six counties are in the bottom two tiers, orange and yellow, down from 23 a week ago.
