Residents of Los Angeles are banned from leaving their homes

You are allowed to leave your apartments and places of residence only in case of emergency. All companies that are unable to transfer employees to remote work must suspend their activities.

The fight against the coronavirus epidemic in the United States is becoming more and more violent. Thus, residents of one of the largest cities, Los Angeles, are required to stay at home in isolation. Such decision was made by the city authorities. Restrictions had to be introduced due to an increase in the number of patients, writes world.comments.

The corresponding order was published on the website of Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti. The document says the city is now close to a crushing turning point, after which the number of hospitalizations will exceed the capacity of the hospital fund.

“These unfortunate facts about the spread of COVID-19 in our city mean we must restore some of the stricter restrictions that were imposed in the spring,” said the Los Angeles residents. In order to protect the lives and property of the citizens, they have been ordered strict isolation.

“All persons living in Los Angeles must stay at home,” the order says. Homeless people will be provided with temporary housing by the authorities. They are allowed to leave their apartments and places of residence only in case of emergency. All companies that are unable to transfer employees to remote work must suspend their activities. If they violate the isolation order, they will have to pay a fine or even go to jail.

However, the order has a lot of exceptions. Medical clinics, food stores and pharmacies are allowed to work. Vending machines and financial institutions will continue to operate.
