Over 70% of California's Economy Has Reopened, Gov. Gavin Newsom Says

Over 70% of California’s economy has reopened with limitations, Gov. Gavin Newsom said Monday during his daily update on the state’s response to #COVID-19

“I know 70% is not 100%, and I recognize that ‘with modifications’ means ‘with restrictions,’ and ‘with restrictions’ means a struggle for businesses to get back where they were pre-pandemic,” Newsom said.

Last Friday, the state moved into the next phase of reopening its economy by allowing some nonessential retailers — including clothing, music, toy, sporting goods and book stores — to reopen for curbside pickup.

Still, the impact of the pandemic on the economy has led to unemployment numbers to have “skyrocketed” in the state, the governor said. Since March 12, 4.5 million Californians have applied for unemployment insurance and pandemic unemployment assistance, while $13.1 billion in unemployment claims have since been distributed.
