The president of the United States is calling for the United States to go to church and back to work in three weeks … at Easter.

Newsom said he could see the social distancing measures lasting as long as 12 weeks. All Californians, not just the elderly, need to be careful. He noted the “tragic loss of life” of a teenager in Lancaster, which brought total number of California coronavirus deaths to about 40 Tuesday morning.


Half of California’s confirmed coronavirus patients are younger than 50, Newsom says.

And one 17 year old teen in Lancaster … a boy … died of Covid 19 this week.


As the fight against coronavirus shows no signs of letting up, a new study looking at responses to the pandemic says that California is putting in the most-aggressive effort of any U.S. state against the ongoing health crisis.


The market for medical supplies has descended into chaos, according to state officials and health-care leaders.
