Is Los Angeles County about to receive a curfew because of COVID-19? It surely looks like it.
What’s going on?
- The officials said they could add a curfew and more health restrictions.
- Cases topped 3,000 for two days in a row over the weekend. Public health officials said there were 3,780 new cases on Saturday, which is the highest one-day total for the county.
Los Angeles County is expected to propose new health guidelines for the public, according to The Los Angeles Times.

How it could impact Thanksgiving
Officials are considering the idea of canceling Thanksgiving plans with people outside your household, according to ABC-7.
- “We all now are smart, and we know the difference between stupid behavior and smart behavior,” Mayor Eric Garcetti said, according to ABC-7. “There will be people who die because of our behavior if we don’t go back to that disciplined way that in March, April and May we were able to bend this curve down.”
