California's governor imposes 10pm curfew across the state as coronavirus cases surge

"We are sounding the alarm", Newsom said in a statement.

Battling a risky surge in coronavirus cases, California public health officials on Thursday imposed a limited stay-at-home order they hope will help slow the spread.

The "Purple Tier" refers to the Golden State's color-coded system that is based on the number of coronavirus cases in each county. The curfew will be in place for all California counties in the Purple Tier.

The order begins at 10 p.m. Saturday, November 21, and will remain in effect until 5 a.m. Monday, December 21.

Newsom noted that the biggest increase the state had seen previously was in mid-June, when California had a 39.2% increase in new cases in one week. "Together, we can flatten the curve again", he tweeted.

This limited stay-at-home order is created to reduce opportunities for disease transmission. It is crucial that we act to decrease transmission and slow hospitalizations before the death count surges.

'We may need to take more stringent actions if we are unable to flatten the curve quickly. In these kinds of settings, either at home or at outdoor dining facilities, participants are more likely to be less careful about masking, distancing, and other protocols. Taking these hard, temporary actions now could help prevent future shutdowns'.

"We are asking Californians to change their personal behaviors to stop the surge". "Letting our guard down could put thousands of lives in danger and cripple our health care system".

Newsom announced on Monday that 41 of the California's 58 counties would go into the purple tier as COVID-19 cases have increased statewide recently. In recent weeks, health officials across the state have seen a surge in cases, with Los Angeles County reporting a record 5,031 cases and 29 additional deaths on Thursday.

Last week, California, Washington, and OR issued travel advisories that urge visitors from out-of-state OR residents returning home from outside travel to self-quarantine for 14 days. Masks must be worn by individuals whenever they leave their homes. The travel advisory urges against non-essential out-of-state travel, asks people to self-quarantine for 14 days after arriving from another state or country, and encourages residents to stay local.

As the Downtown Disney District as well as Buena Vista Street both now close at 10pm, we may see operating hours reduce in order to give guests the opportunity to get home before curfew.
