    “(Reuters) - California reported more than 10,000 coronavirus cases on Tuesday, a record rise for a single day that also surpassed the number of contact tracers recently trained by the state to detect and prevent potential outbreaks.“

    [...]

    “The daily increase exceeds the 10,000 contact tracers Governor Gavin Newsom announced in mid-May, when case numbers were waning, as part of plans to reopen the state.

    Newsom said then that more than 500 people had already been trained to work as “disease detectives”, using state databases to trace and advise people who had been in contact with confirmed cases.“

    “Coronavirus conditions in Los Angeles County continued to deteriorate on Tuesday as officials released numbers that marked another new record for daily new cases and the inflection rate continued to surge.

    Officials confirmed 46 more coronavirus-related deaths and 4,015 additional cases Tuesday — the highest number of infections the county has reported in a single day.

    That’s largely due to the roughly 2,000 test results that were backlogged from July 2 to July 5.

    The seven-day average for the county’s daily positivity rate — those who test positive for the virus — has climbed to 11.6%.”

    [...]

    ““It’s clear that after months of quarantine, combined with the reopening of many sectors in the span of several weeks, we’ve had a lot of people disregard the very practices that allowed us to slow the spread,” Ferrer said. “Our inability to follow the most basic infection control and distancing directives leads to serious illness, and even the death of the people we love.””

    California Will Release Up To 8,000 Prisoners Due To Coronavirus

    “More than half of the prisoners could be released this month. The corrections department says it's reviewing the roster of prisoners who have fewer than 180 days left on their sentences; it anticipates roughly 4,800 people could be eligible for release by the end of July.

    To be freed, prisoners must meet certain criteria — including that they are not currently incarcerated for domestic violence or other violent crime, and that they won't have to register as sex offenders.”

    California coronavirus-related deaths top 7,000 as infection spread worsens

    “The death toll from the coronavirus in California soared above 7,000 this weekend as the infection rate continued to worsen.

    The rate at which coronavirus test results are coming back positive in California over the previous seven days has hit 7.97%. That’s the highest number since April — a continuing sign that the coronavirus is spreading throughout the state, according to a Los Angeles Times analysis conducted Saturday.“

    [...]

    “For those of you mourning the loss of a loved one from COVID-19, your community mourns with you,” L.A. County Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer said in a statement. “We must work together to get back to being able to slow the spread. Unless we can do this, our recovery journey is in jeopardy.”“

    New Bill Would Require California To Keep 90-Day Stockpile Of PPE
    June 19

    “As cases of coronavirus continue to increase with more businesses reopening, a local lawmaker is proposing a bill that would require the state, and health care providers to keep months-worth of extra personal protective equipment (PPE) on hand.

    It’s been three months of stress and worry for EMT Gabriel Montoya with not enough PPE to go around.

    “Every day we are worried that this might be the day that we get it,” Montoya said. “For three shifts, sometimes at length, which means we are going from patient room to patient room with the same mask and we could possibly be giving this to patients.”“

    [...]

    ““This is really a step towards preparedness and that why I think this is an important investment to try to protect our future from a future pandemic and economic decline because of that,” Pan said.

    For those on the front lines like Montoya, it would give him the peace of mind he’s been hoping for.

    “We feel like the federal government has dropped the ball, we have not been prioritized in our safety and we feel like okay, California it is time to step up,” Montoya said. “We want to go in there and care for patients as best as we can, but we don’t just want to be called health care heroes right, we don’t want to be martyrs.”“

    California pastor to defy Newsom's shutdown, possibly run for governor

    “A California pastor said he would defy Gov. Gavin Newsom's latest coronavirus lockdown — and maybe even challenge him in the polls.

    Pastor Greg Fairrington, leader of 3,500-members Destiny Christian Church outside of Sacramento, said he plans to continue holding in-person services despite Newsom's second shutdown announced Monday. The Golden State has had a steep surge of COVID-19 cases, now second to New York.”

    Californians turn against each other amid 2nd coronavirus shutdown

    “”Just wear a [expletive] mask, people,” actor Coby Ryan McLaughlin tweeted. “I wanna get back to work. I want my kid to be able to socialize at school. I wanna sit in a bar with my lady and have a drink. Stop being an [expletive]. Especially you, Florida. (And you, too, California).””

    [...]

    “The mask wars were fought this week in real life, too. On the same day Newsom announced the wider shutdown, the Orange County Board of Education voted to recommend schools reopen in the fall without mandatory masks for students or increased social distancing. The vote by the largely conservative board ignited an immediate uproar. As one antimask speaker at a subsequent Board of Supervisors meeting declared: “We here in Orange County are the heart of the resistance.””

    [...]

    ““Summer should have been spent by making the best efforts to decrease the curve and spread of coronavirus, to allow future generations of our society to earn an education as everyone else,” the Glendora teen said. “Instead, it was spent by disobeying orders and spreading a plague of death that could’ve been prevented...”

    Or as UC San Francisco epidemiologist and infectious-diseases expert Dr. George Rutherford put it: “I think wearing a mask and trying to follow a few simple things isn’t the end of the world. We’re not signaling the end of Western civilization here. This is pretty benign stuff.”“

    Nearly a Thousand COVID-19 Cases Reported in California Day Cares

    “New data revealed by NBC Bay Area’s Investigative Unit shows 998 COVID-19 cases in child care facilities across California. The Investigative Unit documents how two Bay Area child care centers scrambled to prevent outbreaks after learning of COVID-19 positive cases among the kids who attend their facilities.

    “The cases are up 12% since last week, according to California’s Department of Social Services, which recently started compiling the cases at child care facilities and will continue posting weekly on its website, along with resources and guidelines for child care businesses.”

    [...]

    ““We were notified by the health department, by public health, that two children in our toddler program who are related tested positive for COVID through contact tracing,” said Susan Gilmore, the center’s CEO, adding, “these are kids that never would have been tested. They were asymptomatic, went through the check-in every morning, taking their temperature.”“

    Can California contain coronavirus surge? Next two weeks will be critical

    ““It’s kind of in everybody’s hands right now,” said Barbara Ferrer, director of public health for L.A. County. “We don’t have a lot of time, though. At some point, you turn that corner where you’re actually expecting hospitals to provide way more care than is possible.”“

    [...]

    ““Birthday parties, the visits with grandparents ... the barbecues: they are contributing to a delay or rollback in reopening of businesses,” said Dr. Grant Colfax, San Francisco’s public health director.“

    Coronavirus updates: 356,000 Californians infected; public schools close for fall
    “The coronavirus has infected more than 356,000 Californians, according to state public health data released Thursday. About 8,500 more cases were reported Wednesday.

    The virus has infected roughly 1 in 110 Californians, and killed 7,345, as of Thursday.

    Over the last week as of Wednesday, about 7.2 percent of all coronavirus tests came back positive. That rolling average is close to the state’s self-imposed benchmark of keeping the positivity rate at 8 percent or less before reopening the economy.”

    I thought WHO recommends 5%?

    Eta:
    “Jul 5, 2020 · The World Health Organization's recommended positivity rate for reopening is 5% or below over a period of 14 days, according to John Hopkins ...”
