California churches defy state orders amid Supreme Court ruling in NY | Pastor Sam Rodriguez is celebrating what he calls a win for religious freedom after the U.S. Supreme Court last week barred New York from enforcing certain limits on attendance at churches and synagogues in areas designated as hard hit by COVID-19. Sacramento County records record-breaking number of new COVID cases | New numbers from Sacramento County Public Health show the county added more than 1,100 COVID-19 new cases Tuesday, nearly doubling the previous report and setting another record in the county. California churches defy state orders amid Supreme Court ruling in New York | With most of California’s counties now in the state’s most restrictive tier for reopening, that means most places of worship are prohibited from holding indoor services. On the heels of a recent Supreme Court decision in New York in favor of churches, some in California continue to do so anyway. California faces possible COVID-19 hospital crisis, lockdown | A staggering rise in coronavirus cases could overwhelm California’s health system within weeks and “drastic” action such as a widespread stay-at-home order may be needed to combat the threat, Gov. Gavin Newsom warned.CIF postpones practice, competition start dates due to COVID surge | The California Interscholastic Federation announced Tuesday it is putting practices and competition start dates for student athletics on hold due to a continued surge of the novel coronavirus.

Since then, the state developed a reopening plan that impacts each county.The plan is a four-tier color system for reopening the state. Counties move in and out of tiers based on their number of COVID-19 cases. Purple is the most restrictive, followed by red, orange and yellow, the least restrictive. Tier assignments may occur any day of the week and may occur more than once a week.California issued a “limited,” monthlong curfew that began on Nov. 21 and will remain in place until 5 a.m. Dec. 21. During the overnight curfew period, Californians are still able to go to the grocery or drug store, get takeout from a restaurant or walk the dog, said Dr. Mark Ghaly, California’s top health official.The order is similar to the stay-at-home order issued in March but is applied only between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m. and only in purple tier counties that are seeing the highest rates of positive cases and hospitalizations in the state. Counties that enter the purple tier start the monthlong curfew two days after being assigned to the tier. | More | What you can and can’t do under California’s COVID curfew| More | What you can and

CALIFORNIA CORONAVIRUS TIERS AND CURFEW

Here is what you should know about the state’s reopening plans.

In mid-March, when the novel coronavirus pandemic hit California, state officials shut down many industries or established restrictions in order to mitigate the spread of the virus. Since then, the state developed a reopening plan that impacts each county.

The plan is a four-tier color system for reopening the state. Counties move in and out of tiers based on their number of COVID-19 cases. Purple is the most restrictive, followed by red, orange and yellow, the least restrictive. Tier assignments may occur any day of the week and may occur more than once a week.

California issued a “limited,” monthlong curfew that began on Nov. 21 and will remain in place until 5 a.m. Dec. 21.

During the overnight curfew period, Californians are still able to go to the grocery or drug store, get takeout from a restaurant or walk the dog, said Dr. Mark Ghaly, California’s top health official.

The order is similar to the stay-at-home order issued in March but is applied only between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m. and only in purple tier counties that are seeing the highest rates of positive cases and hospitalizations in the state. Counties that enter the purple tier start the monthlong curfew two days after being assigned to the tier.

CASES BY COUNTY

Here is a breakdown of COVID-19 cases by county in Northern California.

NOTE: Maps below powered by data from Johns Hopkins University.


WHO IS BEING INFECTED?

According to data from the California Department of Public Health, Latino and Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander groups have been disproportionately affected by COVID-19 relative to their population in the state.

State data also shows that men generally have a higher number of COVID-19 related deaths relative to their population.

When it comes to age, data shows that people 18-49 have a disproportionate number of cases. However, people 65 and older make up for a disproportionate number of deaths.


IMPACT ON HOSPITALS

Experts warn that the recent surge in coronavirus cases across California could overwhelm hospitals and intensive care units.

Here is the current number of COVID-19 hospitalized patients in the state:


TEST POSITIVITY RATE

HOW TO PROTECT YOURSELF

Here are six ways to protect yourself and family, according to the California Department of Public Health:

• Wash hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.

• Avoid touching eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands.

• Cover a cough or sneeze with your sleeve, or disposable tissue. Wash your hands afterward.

• Avoiding close contact with people who are sick.

• Stay away from work, school or other people if you become sick with respiratory symptoms like fever and cough.

• Follow guidance from public health officials.


WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS OF COVID-19?

Per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, these are the symptoms you should watch out for:

  • Fever or chills.
  • Cough.
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing.
  • Fatigue.
  • Muscle or body aches.
  • Headache.
  • New loss of taste or smell.
  • Sore throat.
  • Congestion or runny nose.
  • Nausea or vomiting.
  • Diarrhea.

This list does not include all possible symptoms. CDC will continue to update this list as they learn more about the virus.

The CDC says to look for emergency warning signs for coronavirus. If someone is showing any of these signs, seek emergency medical care immediately:

  • Trouble breathing.
  • Persistent pain or pressure in the chest.
  • New confusion.
  • Inability to wake or stay awake.
  • Bluish lips or face.

This list is not all possible symptoms. Call your medical provider for any other symptoms that are severe or concerning to you. Call 911 or call ahead to your local emergency facility: Notify the operator that you are seeking care for someone who has or may have COVID-19.

Who is most at risk for coronavirus?

Anyone can have mild to severe symptoms of COVID-19, according to the CDC.

Older adults and people who have severe underlying medical conditions like heart or lung disease or diabetes seem to be at higher risk for developing more serious complications from the virus.

Flu or COVID-19: What’s the difference between them?

Because some of the symptoms of flu and COVID-19 are similar, it may be hard to tell the difference between them based on symptoms alone. That’s when testing may be needed to help confirm a diagnosis.

There are some key differences between flu and COVID-19. The CDC says it seems COVID-19 spreads more easily than flu and causes more serious illnesses in some people. It can also take longer before people show symptoms of COVID-19 and people can be contagious for a longer period of time than the flu.

Another difference is there is a vaccine to protect against the flu. There is currently no vaccine to prevent COVID-19. The best way to prevent infection is to avoid being exposed to the virus.


CALIFORNIA’S TRAVEL ADVISORY

What does the California travel advisory say?

The state’s travel advisory urges people entering California to self-quarantine for 14 days.

The state health department’s recommendation does not apply to people who cross state or country borders for travel that’s deemed essential.

“We know that it’s not an easy thing to do, that it creates a hardship, but we know that if we’re gonna get through this really difficult time with surging cases, that these are the important steps that we need to make personal and individual choices,” Ghaly said when the advisory was first announced on Nov. 13.

The advisory also encourages Californians to stay home or in their region and to avoid nonessential travel to other states or counties.

Why is the guidance a travel advisory and not a mandate?

Ghaly said California decided on an advisory instead of a mandate because the mandate would be hard to enforce in the state, which has a population of nearly 40 million.

“We certainly hope that the fact that it’s an advisory doesn’t lessen the voice and the emphasis on how important it is,” he said.
