Gov. Newsom Issues Guidance People over the age of 65 and those with Chronic Health Conditions Should Self Isolate and Calls for Closure of Some Businesses; LA Mandates Certain Business Closures; The CDC Issues New Recommendation Against Gatherings of 50

On March 15, 2020, Governor Newsom held a press conference where he made a further announcement regarding provisions for the public to help stop the spread of the Coronavirus. As a consideration, in order to protect the most vulnerable, which includes elders 65 and older, he stated that he was calling for the home isolation of all seniors and people with chronic conditions.  While he did not describe what that means, it is likely that he means that people 65 and older and those with chronic conditions should not leave their house, given that he discussed that his task force would be working on logistics and the provision of wraparound services, including delivering food.
