Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti says the next couple weeks will be defining in the county’s coronavirus fight.

 

During a briefing, Garcetti said about one in 140 people are currently infected with the virus.  The region’s positivity rate is over 8%, nearly double the number from late May.  After the county reported nearly 3,000 cases, the most in a single day, officials announced the closure of all L.A. County beaches during the upcoming holiday weekend.  The mayor added the county is hitting a “hard pause” on reopening entertainment venues.
