During a Thursday press conference, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti issued a “Safer At Home” Emergency Order. All L.A. residents are hereby ordered to stay inside their homes, and immediately limit all movement beyond what is absolutely necessary to take care of essential needs (i.e., visits to the market and CVS and the gas station). He described “Safer At Home” as a “more rigorous form of social distancing.”

Quote: “Los Angeles, this is our moment to lead with love and protect those lives that mean everything to us. This is not a request, this is an order.”
