Newsom introduced the “Stay at Home” mandate that restricted certain regions to lowered retail capacity and eliminated dine-in services. The regions would go under the new restrictions if hospitals reached below 15% capacity. Just after, Southern California was put under the new mandate, which included the Disneyland Resort. Cases continued to climb and Orange County recorded an all-time high of reported illnesses in a single day.

California continues to break records as Deadline just reported that the entire state has hit the highest number of daily new cases that the United States has ever seen. Previously, Newsom stated that the new daily case number of 32,326 was slightly down from the all-time high of 35,468 cases. Now, California’s COVID-19 has reported 53,711 new cases over a 24 hour period this week.

Sometimes, a huge influx of cases is due to a backlog of unreported cases over the weekend. Los Angeles did report a backlog of 7,000 cases, but the remaining 14,000 cases still represented its highest one-day total.
