Los Angeles CLOSED Indefinitely Till Covid-19 Cure, Residents Fear The Future Of Schools

A lot of residents in Los Angeles are extremely frustrated with how this pandemic has affected their lives. And even more now that California Governor, Gavin Newsom, has extended the stay-at-home order to an additional three months.

However, he has been quite confusing and conflicting with his statements which makes it even more unsettling to residents of LA.

'LA will never be completely open until we have a cure', He stated. That could be a very long time. I am so glad I do not live there anymore!

According to The Hill:

California Governor Gavin Newsom has allowed individual counties to implement their own lockdown measures based on the state of the pandemic in their areas and Garcetti first issued the city's 'Safer at Home' emergency order on March 19. 

LA continues to see a spike in coronavirus cases and deaths, with the county announcing another 961 cases and 45 deaths on Tuesday.

This takes the total death toll in LA to 1,613, meaning it makes up more than half of the 2,882 deaths across the whole of California. 

Confirmed cases have reached 33,180, according to county figures as of 8pm Monday. 

Despite LA continuing to be hard-hit by the outbreak, Angelinos have grown increasingly frustrated, with anti-lockdown protesters gathering outside Garcetti's home demanding an end to stay-at-home orders.

The confusing messaging from officials has now fueled tensions further this week, with many residents taking to social media to voice their anger over the lack of clarity.

Speaking to GMA, Garcetti stopped short of denying reports that LA will be shuttered until August but insisted Ferrer's comments were 'taken out of context'.

'I think we have to all recognize that we're not moving beyond COVID-19, we're learning to live with it,' said Garcetti.

'It's important not to overreact but it's important to take this serious because it's as dangerous today as it was the first day it arrived in our cities and our country.

'So quite frankly there's no so-called open state or open country that doesn't continue to have health orders telling us to cover our faces, physically distance and to tell people that you're safest working from and staying at home - that's all the county health director was saying and we can't expect that to disappear in a matter of weeks or even a few months.'

Schools have been on the radar of concerning parents with many questions about the future. It has been said that either the days would be less or staggered to keep social distancing intact. Also, all staff and students will be tested frequently. Schools as they knew it will not be the same for a long time.
