California Governor Releases 6 Benchmarks Needed To Reopen State

California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) released a list of six benchmarks the state must meet before it can begin relaxing strict social distancing mandates.

The state has successfully begun flattening its curve of coronavirus cases. But California is “not out of the woods yet,” Newsom warned at a Tuesday press conference.

The six indicators for modifying shelter-in-place orders are as follows, Newsom’s office said:

  • The ability to monitor and protect our communities through testing, contact tracing, isolating, and supporting those who are positive or exposed;
  • The ability to prevent infection in people who are at risk for more severe COVID-19;
  • The ability of the hospital and health systems to handle surges;
  • The ability to develop therapeutics to meet the demand;
  • The ability for businesses, schools, and child care facilities to support physical distancing; and
  • The ability to determine when to reinstitute certain measures, such as the stay-at-home orders, if necessary.

“The models have changed because of your behavior,” Newsom said of earlier projections that showed a higher rate of infection in California. “And that puts us in a position to be able to socialize again, to make public these private conversations we’ve been having about this next phase.”

But, he continued, “we do so soberly, because today we had a record number of deaths.”

In the past day, Newsom said, 71 people in the state have died from COVID-19.
