Gov Newsom unveils his plan to lift California's stay-at-home order

KTLA Apr 14, 2020

He did not offer a timeline but said change will not come for at least another two weeks. He did assure people these restrictions will not last forever.

“This can’t be a permanent state,” Newsom said. “It will not be a permanent state.”

The plan outlined by the governor includes six key indicators that must be met in order to ease the current restrictions.

They are:

Expanding the state’s testing capacity, as well as the ability to appropriately track, trace and isolate individuals who test positive for, or are exposed to, COVID-19.

Maintaining vigilance in protecting the most vulnerable from infection and spread, primarily seniors and immunocompromised individuals.

Addressing the ongoing needs of hospitals, in relation to potential surges — and ensuring that doctors, nurse and staff have the appropriate protective gear they need, such as N95 masks.

Engaging with research partners to develop therapeutics and potentially a vaccine.

Enacting guidelines on what physical distancing would look like within businesses, schools, and public and private facilities. That could mean re-drawing floor plans so people can practice safe social distancing outside the home.

Increasing capacity to adjust levels of physical distancing and having the ability to reinstate “more rigorous controls” as needed — toggling from stricter to looser interventions, “back and forth as things change.”

Newsom emphasized that two things that must happen for the state to loosen the stay-at-home order: the rates of hospitalizations and intensive care unit admission need to flatten and decline; and the state must be able to build the infrastructure laid out in the six-point plan.
