SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – California State Parks announced Sunday that vehicular access will temporarily be closed at all 280 state parks to prevent the spread of coronavirus after experiencing a surge of visitations at many sites. “On Saturday, many state parks once again experienced visitation surges that made it impossible for the public to implement appropriate social/ physical distancing practices,” CA State Parks said in a press release. “During this pandemic disease, every person has a role to play in slowing down the spread of COVID-19.

Supervisor Nathan Fletcher announced during Sunday’s briefing on the coronavirus pandemic that no patients have died in the last 24 hours, leaving the death toll in San Diego County at seven. “Fortunately, there is no additional loss of life to report today,” Fletcher said. The grocery store employee who tested positive is from an Albertson’s store in Escondido, Fletcher said, adding that the store did the right thing by closing, alerting county environmental health officials, following sanitation protocols, then re-opening to customers. “If you have a sick worker, they must stay home,” Fletcher said, urging employers to call 858-505-6814 to report any sick workers. Dr. Eric McDonald, the county’s medical director of epidemiology, said co-workers of the Albertson’s employee who display any symptoms of the coronavirus infection will be sent home, but there are no tests pending in this case.

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti is set to provide an update on the city’s coronavirus response Sunday. The mayor will be speaking at a video news conference at 5:15 p.m. The number of novel coronavirus cases in Los Angeles County on Sunday went up to 2,136 from 1,804 the day before as the county stepped up its testing for the virus, according to the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health.

Trump extends virus guidelines, braces US for big death toll that could hit 100,000

By ZEKE MILLER and JILL COLVIN WASHINGTON (AP) — Bracing the nation for a death toll that could exceed 100,000 people, President Donald Trump on Sunday extended restrictive social distancing guidelines through April, bowing to public-health experts who presented him with even more dire projections for the expanding coronavirus pandemic. It was a stark shift in tone by the president, who only days ago mused about the country reopening in a few weeks. From the Rose Garden, he said his Easter revival hopes had only been “aspirational.” The initial 15-day period of social distancing urged by the federal government expires Monday and Trump had expressed interest in relaxing the national guidelines at least in parts of the country less afflicted by the pandemic. He instead decided to extend them through April 30, a tacit acknowledgment he’d been too optimistic. Many states and local governments have stiffer controls in place on mobility and gatherings. Trump’s impulse to reopen the country met a sober reality check Sunday from Dr. Anthony Fauci, the government’s top infectious disease expert, who said the U.S. could experience more than 100,000 deaths…

Texas orders anyone arriving on a flight from California to quarantine for 14 days to fight coronavirus

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott has rolled out new rules that require anyone flying to the state from California, Washington and other coronavirus hot spots to self-quarantine for two weeks or risk jail time if they don’t comply. The governor is also ratcheting up restrictions on neighboring Louisiana, one of the growing hot spots for coronavirus in the U.S. Texas is also preparing Dallas’ downtown convention center to house infected patients as part of the governor’s plan to both slow and manage the growing pandemic. Just two days after Texas began requiring airline passengers from New Orleans to comply with a two-week quarantine, Abbott said state troopers will now also patrol highway entry points at the Louisiana border and require “everyone stopped” in those cars to also self-isolate. Abbott’s order requires drivers to fill out a form listing where they will quarantine in Texas.

Coronavirus: Residents’ hunger for outside recreation collides with social-distancing rules

CLICK HERE if you’re having a problem viewing the photos on a mobile device. Bay Area residents seeking an escape from their living rooms amid unprecedented shelter-in-place orders meant to control the COVID-19 outbreak are creating a new kind of stress: Headaches for state and local officials scrambling to close or restrict access to outdoor areas, hoping to keep growing crowds from dulling the effect of social distancing. As the third week of stay-home orders begins, with more likely to come, cabin fever was intensifying for many. Uncertainty is looming over parks systems that are currently open, and officials say visitors need to play by the new health rules, or risk forcing more closures. On Sunday morning, Gov. Gavin Newsom’s office ordered that all 280 state parks be closed to all vehicles. State parks officials said in a statement that crowds at many state parks on Saturday “made it impossible for the public to implement appropriate social/ physical distancing practices.” That announcement came less than two days after San Mateo County closed all 23 parks it manages completely, and after the East Bay Regional Park…

Coronavirus: California home sales now ‘essential’ but health risks scare agents

Real estate agents have serious concerns about what would seem to be good news: reclassifying their work as “essential” in this era of coronavirus fears. Over the weekend, residential real estate sales were added to an updated list of essential services from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency. That seemingly gave a green light to the resumption of sales since that same list was key to a previous no-selling interpretation of Gov. Gavin Newsom’s “stay at home” order. But real estate professionals, in interviews with the Southern California News Group and numerous comments on social media, questioned the health risks from restarting the very personal sales process that includes bringing strangers into other people’s homes. What had previously amounted to a sales ban had also put into doubt whether sales in the pipeline could be completed. Becoming “essential” may, at least, ease the deal-closing process. “This will help allow inspections and appraisals to take place. Other than that, everybody should just stay home,” said housing analyst Steve Thomas at ReportsOnHousing. California Association of Realtors told members on Saturday, March 28,…
