随着全国和加利福尼亚州COVID-19病例急剧增加，州长加文·纽瑟姆（Gavin Newsom）和州公共卫生官员今天宣布立即采取行动，减慢该病毒的传播。 加州正在紧急制止“更安全的经济发展蓝图”，导致加州94.1％的人口处于最严格的等级。 这项更改将于明天生效。 该州将连续重新评估数据，并在必要时将更多县移回。 加利福尼亚州还加强了脸部覆盖指南，要求个人在出门在外时必须戴口罩，但有例外。
“我们正在发出警报，”州长Newsom说。 “在我们所看到的病例中，加利福尼亚州的发病率增长最快，比大流行初期甚至今年夏天的经历要快。 如果不加以制止，COVID-19的传播可能很快使我们的医疗体系不堪重负，并导致灾难性后果。 这就是为什么我们在《蓝图》中紧急制动，以实现更安全的经济。 现在是时候尽我们所能-各级政府和全州的加利福尼亚人-像以前一样再次拉平曲线。”
确诊的COVID-19病例的增长率比7月份要快，这导致病例显着达到峰值。 这要求所有加利福尼亚人迅速采取公共卫生措施并采取行动，以减慢病毒的传播。 立即采取行动将有助于保护因COVID-19处于严重疾病或死亡风险中的高风险个人，并有助于防止该州的医疗服务体系不堪重负。
“我们看到的数据非常令人担忧。 我们正处在高潮中，时间至关重要。 每天都很重要，每个决定都很重要。”加州卫生与公共服务部长Mark Ghaly博士说。 “个人决定很重要，我在恳求每个加州人尽可能留在家里，每当他们离开家时戴上口罩，限制聚会，遵行社交距离规定和洗手。”
加利福尼亚已采取步骤，为州增加COVID-19病例的准备。 加州已经开发了额外的测试功能，可以快速识别病例，最近在瓦伦西亚开设了一个新实验室，每天已经处理数千个测试。 本州在过去7天内平均进行了164,345次测试。
Governor Newsom Announces New Immediate Actions to Curb COVID-19 Transmission
Published: Nov 16, 2020
New actions include pulling an emergency brake in the Blueprint for a Safer Economy and strengthening face covering mandate
Vast majority of counties are in the most restrictive tier starting tomorrow
SACRAMENTO – As COVID-19 cases sharply increase across the country and California, Governor Gavin Newsom and state public health officials announced immediate actions today to slow the spread of the virus. The state is pulling an emergency brake in the Blueprint for a Safer Economy resulting in 94.1 percent of California’s population in the most restrictive tier. This change is effective tomorrow. The state will reassess data continuously and move more counties back if necessary. California is also strengthening its face covering guidance to require individuals to wear a mask whenever outside their home, with limited exceptions.
“We are sounding the alarm,” said Governor Newsom. “California is experiencing the fastest increase in cases we have seen yet –faster than what we experienced at the outset of the pandemic or even this summer. The spread of COVID-19, if left unchecked, could quickly overwhelm our health care system and lead to catastrophic outcomes. That is why we are pulling an emergency brake in the Blueprint for a Safer Economy. Now is the time to do all we can – government at all levels and Californians across the state – to flatten the curve again as we have done before.”
The rate of growth in confirmed COVID-19 cases is faster than it was in July, which led to a significant peak in cases. This requires a swift public health response and action from all Californians to slow the spread of the virus. Immediate action will help protect individuals at higher risk of severe illness or death from COVID-19 and will help keep the state’s health care delivery system from becoming overwhelmed.
“The data we are seeing is very concerning. We are in the midst of a surge, and time is of the essence. Every day matters and every decision matters,” said California Health and Human Services Secretary Dr. Mark Ghaly. “Personal decisions are critical, and I am I imploring every Californian to stay home if they can, wear a mask whenever they leave their homes, limit mixing, practice physical distancing and wash their hands.”
The 28 counties moving back into Tier 1(Purple/Widespread) include:
Alameda Napa Santa Cruz
Butte Nevada Siskiyou
Contra Costa Orange Solano
El Dorado Placer Sutter
Fresno San Benito Trinity
Glenn San Joaquin Tuolumne
Kern San Luis Obispo Ventura
Merced Santa Barbara
Santa Clara Yolo
The nine counties moving back into Tier 2 (Red/Substantial) include:
Colusa Marin Plumas
Del Norte Modoc San Francisco
Humboldt Mono San Mateo
The two counties moving back into Tier 3 (Orange/Moderate) include:
Today’s action will remain in effect until the State Public Health Officer determines it is appropriate to make modifications based on public health conditions and data.
California has taken steps to prepare the state for an increase in COVID-19 cases. The state has developed additional testing capacity to allow cases to be quickly identified, recently opening a new laboratory in Valencia that is already processing thousands of tests a day. The state is averaging 164,345 tests over the last seven days.
The state has been working in partnership with hospitals, clinics and physicians on the COVID-19 response. To support California’s health care delivery system, the state has an additional 1,872 beds available at alternate care sites outside of the system that can be made available quickly if needed to respond to a surge in cases.
California will continue to update the Blueprint for a Safer Economy based on the best available public health data and science. For more information about the Blueprint and what Californians can do to prevent the spread of COVID-19, visit covid19.ca.gov.
