California has announced the first steps to remove the state from quarantine imposed to contain the coronavirus. Authorities have allowed retail stores to resume operations this week, albeit with some restrictions.
California is part of a group of about two dozen states where restrictions are still fully in place, but Governor Gavin Newsome announced that the most populous state authorities will allow some counties to go further easing if they meet certain testing and protection requirements.
“Today is an optimistic day as we see a little sunshine,” Democrat Newsome said at a daily coronavirus briefing.
He said he could go for an easing of the tough restrictions imposed on March 19 as Coronavirus testing in California has grown to 25,000 people per day and there are no more new bursts of COVID-19.
According to Reuters, in California there are 2215 deaths from COVID-19 – respiratory disease caused by the new coronavirus, and the number of infected is about 55 thousand.
