California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) has lifted the stay-at-home order put in place due to the spread of the coronavirus for all states, with officials citing “positive signs” of a slower spread.
“We see promising signs that California is slowly emerging from the most intense stage of this pandemic. We continue to look at what that means for the Regional Stay at Home order and anticipate that the state Department of Public Health will provide a formal update tomorrow morning,” said Brian Ferguson, the Deputy Director for Crisis Communication & Public Affairs from the Governor’s Office.
Health and Human Services Secretary Mark Ghaly said California is beginning to “emerge from the most dangerous surge” of the coronavirus pandemic.
“California is slowly starting to emerge from the most dangerous surge of this pandemic yet, which is the light at the end of the tunnel we’ve been hoping for,” Ghaly said in a statement.
