California: Latest updates on coronavirus

On March 12 (Thursday) California Gov. Gavin Newsom issued a new executive order to help curb the spread of coronavirus. The order waives the normal waiting period for receiving benefits for those who are newly unemployed or disabled due to COVID-19. One provision also allows the state to take private property if needed to combat the virus.

Newsom also stressed on Wednesday (March 11) that all public gatherings in the state should be canceled until at least the end of the month, according to news reports.
