Gov. Gavin Newsom has ordered all 19 counties that have been on the state’s COVID-19 watchlist for at least three days to shut down all indoor activities for at least three weeks.
That order includes Santa Clara, Contra Costa and Solano Counties in the Bay Area. Other counties impacted are Fresno, Glenn, Imperial, Kern, Kings, Los Angeles, Merced, Orange, Riverside, Sacramento, San Bernardino, San Joaquin, Santa Barbara, Stanislaus, Tulare and Ventura.
In all, these counties cover more than 70% of the state's population.
The state's positivity rate has now jumped to 6% over the last 14 days and 6.4% over the last week.
Two weeks ago, 4.4% of Californians getting tested for coronavirus were positive. The sudden jump in positivity rate indicates a higher community spread.
The state recorded 5,898 new cases on June 30, and the number of Californians who are hospitalized with COVID-19 has increased by 51% from two weeks ago.
KCBS Radio's Doug Sovern spoke exclusively with Gov. Newsom on the new restrictions.
