San Francisco Mayor London Breed stated in a tweet Friday that the city will briefly postpone its scheduled resuming for Monday, that included nail beauty parlors, hair salons and outside bars, as the variety of Covid-19 cases increase throughout California.
“Yesterday we saw 103 cases. On June 15, when we first reopened outdoor dining and in-store retail, we had 20,” Breed composed on Twitter. “At our current rate, the number could double rapidly. If that continues & we don’t intervene, we’ll be at such a high number that our only option would be to shut down.”
The city at first sent out a demand to the state on June 22 to move into its next stage of resuming on June 29, instead of mid-July as was formerly set up. Breed stated the next stage would permit zoos, outside pool, outside bars, beauty parlor, hair salons, tattoo parlors, nail beauty parlors and museums to resume next week.
However, Covid-19 cases have actually given that revealed indications of speeding up in California. It’s among 35 states where cases were growing by 5% or more since Thursday, based upon the modification in typical brand-new cases compared to recently, according to a CNBC analysis of Johns Hopkins University information.
The state reported a near 44% boost in its weekly average of coronavirus cases, balancing 4,861 daily brand-new cases.
Gov. Gavin Newsom has actually left it to towns within the state to choose whether they’re prepared to resume specific parts of their economy after more rural counties reported little Covid-19 cases. So far, San Francisco has actually resumed outside dining, indoor retail and other little public activities with health adjustments and restricted capability, according to the city’s resuming standards.
Newsom stated at a press rundown on Friday that San Francisco’s choice to pause its scheduled resuming based upon increasing case numbers was “exactly how it’s supposed to work” and stated he was “pleased” with the management in the city.
When inquired about the state’s prepare for resuming, Newsom stated it’s currently been at a time out for “well over a week ago.” That consists of Disney’s current choice to not resume in early July.
Other states in the U.S. have actually needed to stop briefly or roll back a few of their resuming strategies. Earlier on Friday, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott purchased the state’s bars to close and minimized the capability for indoor dining at dining establishments, to name a few adjustments.
In Florida, Gov. Ron DeSantis stated that the state has no additional strategies of resuming at this moment in time. He included that the state “never anticipated” continuing to move on at this moment. In Arizona, Gov. Doug Ducey stated if the state’s resuming were a traffic control, it would remain in the “yellow” or “yield” position.
