The Decree comes into force on Saturday and will be valid until December 21.
California Governor Gavin Newsom has announced a curfew, which will operate in a large part of the state to combat the spread of coronavirus.
The California Department of Health has decreed that it is prohibited to be outdoors for no good reason between 10:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. in “purple zone” districts, where the strictest quarantine measures are in place.
The restriction will take effect on Saturday and will remain in effect until December 21, but may be extended.
“The virus is spreading at a rate that we haven’t seen since the beginning of this pandemic, and the next few days and weeks will be critical to halting this spike. We are sounding the alarm,” Newsom said in a statement.
The state has recorded more than 10,000 new infections per day four times since last Thursday.
