L.A. County on brink of additional restrictions with more than 4,500 new coronavirus cases
Another round of distressing case numbers has Los Angeles teetering on the brink of further restrictions to slow the spread of the coronavirus ‘ including the likely shutdown of outdoor restaurant dining.
County data released Saturday evening revealed 4,522 new cases; the average daily count over the last four days is 4,442. If the average remains higher than 4,000 on Sunday ‘ which seems all but certain ‘ the outdoor dining restriction is set to be reinstated for the first time since May.
And Los Angeles public health officials have set another threshold if the five-day average reaches 4,500: It will trigger a new stay-at-home order that would generally allow only essential workers and people securing essential services to leave their homes.
