California governor Gavin Newsom announced a four-phase reopening plan Tuesday as the state “flattens” the curve of coronavirus infections and deaths.
Newsom, recognizing that “the reality is that the Covid-19 will not be leaving soon,” said through his report on the Twitter social network that California’s reopening will be “gradual and science-led” public health needs .
Therefore, the first phase will focus on security and preparation. According to the governor of California, the state is currently in this stage and is targeting home confinement, which will increase the capacity of the area’s hospitals and perform diagnostic tests. It also ensures that “essential jobs” are available “as safely as possible”.
Phase two focuses on lower risk jobs. They open “gradually” and “with adjustments”. This section contains retail stores, factories, offices where telework is not possible, and more public spaces.
