Newsom's latest stay-at-home order will last one month, until December 21, but could be extended if infection rates and disease trends don't improve.

While nonessential businesses must close by 10 p.m., restaurants will be permitted to offer takeout food.

"The virus is spreading at a pace we haven't seen since the start of this pandemic and the next several days and weeks will be critical to stop the surge", Gov. Gavin Newsom said in a statement. It is crucial that we act to decrease transmission and slow hospitalizations before the death count surges. "We are so grateful that many of our residents are wearing face coverings, keeping physically distanced and avoiding gathering with people they don't live with, but we need everyone to do their part and follow these measures".

Gov. Newsom announced the curfew on Thursday as COVID-19 cases continue to rise across the state. And believe me, we do too. He said the idea is to cut off activities and gatherings of people that can promote virus spread. "With the surge in transmission of COVID-19 in Los Angeles County, it is safe to assume that many people are infected without even knowing it yet".

"We've had some things to celebrate, some things to protest, coming together in ways that we don't usually always do", Ghaly said.

Fauci, asked about the potential of a curfew on Tuesday while receiving an award from San Jose State University, said conditions can vary from county to county and city to city, but that he supported the general premise.

"We've seen in the past that COVID goes from zero to 60 miles per hour very quickly", he said during a briefing on the new stay-at-home order, adding that "all tools are on the table".

It affects counties with the most severe restrictions, 41 of the state's 58 counties that are in the "purple" tier under California's color-coded system for reopening the economy.

In the meantime, LA County was already scheduled to implement new restrictions on Friday, including limiting indoor capacity to 25% at all non-essential businesses and outdoor service at restaurants and breweries to 50% capacity.

Newsom first floated the possibility of a curfew order on Monday when the state moved more than two dozen counties into the purple tier due to rising coronavirus case rates and hospitalizations across the state. County Health Officer Dr. Muntu Davis said the county's surging numbers have now exceeded the spike seen in mid-summer, jumping 68% since the end of October, compared to a 43% increase that occurred between mid-June and early July.

Los Angeles County officials have tightened COVID-19 restrictions ahead of Thanksgiving - and have warned residents that if the spread isn't controlled quickly, the county may be imposing a curfew and a three-week stay-at-home order.
