    Los Angeles residents are ordered to stay in their homes effective immediately as Mayor Eric Garcetti bans all travel including walking, closes non-essential businesses and threatens to arrest anyone breaking new lockdown rules as coronavirus cases and hospitalizations surge. 

    The city was told the new move was ‘necessary for the protection of life and property in the City of Los Angeles’.

    It comes hours after mayor Eric Garcetti told the almost four million people in the city limits to ‘cancel everything’. 

    ‘Don’t meet up with others outside your household. Don’t host gatherings. Don’t go to gatherings. Just stay home.’

    According to the order, ‘all travel, including, without limitation, travel on foot, bicycle, scooter, motorcycle, automobile, or public transit is prohibited’. 

    However, there are some exceptions outlined in the order, which include essential needs such as food, healthcare services, social services and others.    

    Los Angeles residents have been ordered to stay in their homes because of the surge in COVID cases. The city was told the new move was ‘necessary for the protection of life and property in the City of Los Angeles’. It comes hours after mayor Eric Garcetti told the almost four million people in rthe city limits to ‘cancel everything’ 

    The city’s statement read:  ‘Our City is now close to a devastating tipping point, beyond which the number of hospitalized patients would start to overwhelm our hospital system, in turn risking needless suffering and death. 

    ‘These unfortunate facts about the spread of COVID-19 in our City mean that we must resume some of the more restrictive measures we instituted in the Spring. The way to avoid that dreaded scenario is clear. 

    ‘We must refrain from gathering with people from outside our household wherever possible. Angelenos have shown what is possible when we cooperate, listen, and protect our family, friends, neighbors, and favorite businesses. 

    ‘This most recent surge in COVID-19 cases presents us with an opportunity to work together, again, to reduce its spread and flatten the curve. We must minimize contact with others as much as possible. 

    ‘Even if you believe that the virus does not present a particular threat to you, consider the impact that your choices have on others. 

    ‘Because COVID-19 can be transmitted by someone who is unaware that she is carrying it, one person could be unknowingly infecting many people if she is not careful. 

    ‘The better we are now at staying apart, the sooner we will be able to come back together.’
