84% of California population to go on lockdown Sunday night
Just one day after California recorded its highest daily case count ever -- 25,000 cases in a single day and nearly 9,000 cases in Los Angeles County alone -- 33 million residents in the state are returning to some of the strictest lockdown procedures since the start of the pandemic.
The restrictions begin at midnight local time.
The lockdown comes as health officials have warned if there is not a significant change in the rise in cases, hospitals in the state could be out of available beds by Christmas.
In hard-hit Imperial County, there are only two ICU beds remaining, according to county data. In Los Angeles County, the number of hospitalized COVID-19 patients has increased 106% in the past three days.
Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti said on Friday, "8860 cases, a number I can hardly believe, that just a few weeks ago would have been unimaginable. We're on the verge of reaching 10,000 cases daily with the numbers that we're seeing this week."
As part of the lockdown, gatherings of people from different households will be prohibited, except for outdoor services and political demonstrations.
All outdoor dining must immediately close, hair and nail salons, playgrounds, zoos, museums, aquariums and wineries must also be closed.
Nonessential travel is banned and stays at campgrounds, overnight or short-term, will not be permitted. Retail can remain open, but only at 20% capacity.
