Update (2145ET): California Governor Gavin Newsom has issued a state-wide “stay at home” order amid the virus outbreak:

” This means Californians should stay home, but can leave for essential work and necessary errands.”

“…let’s do what is necessary to bend the curve…”

Additionally, Newsom estimated 56% of the state’s population, about 25.5 million people, will become infected.

Newsom says it’s not a law enforcement mandate.

“We will have social pressure that will encourage people to do the right thing,” he says.

We would expect every state to follow.
