With coronavirus deaths surpassing 2,700 yesterday nationwide, and some hospitals overflowing, states and cities are taking matters into their own hands and instituting mitigation measures—one in a big way. "It's time to cancel everything," said Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti yesterday. "The data is nothing short of alarming in the last month alone. Since early November, our daily infections have tripled, our hospitalizations have more than tripled and are at a new peak and our deaths have nearly doubled and they continue to rise. These numbers don't reflect last week's record-breaking numbers. They don't reflect yet the Thanksgiving effect of time spent together with families. When many people were gathering and traveling in defiance of public health warnings and here in our Golden State, unfortunately." He mentioned the healthcare crisis to come. "If cases continue on this pathway, if they continue to increase the pace that we've seen, the County expects that we will run out of hospital beds here in Los Angeles by Christmas time. The public health condition of our city is as dire as it was in March in the earliest days of this pandemic." Read on to learn more about the stay-at-home order, and to ensure your health and the health of others, don't miss these Sure Signs You've Already Had Coronavirus.The Mayor Called the Stay-at-Home Order a Choice Between Life and DeathThe new order isn't that different from the old order. "The city of Los Angeles issued a modified stay-at-home order Wednesday night that mirrors L.A. County rules that went into effect Monday," reports the Los Angeles Times. "The city order prohibits gatherings of people outside immediate households, with some exceptions such as religious services and protests. While the order tells people to stay home, it also allows retail businesses to remain open 'after implementing the County of Los Angeles Department of Public Health Protocols for Retail Establishments Opening for In-person Shopping.'""California has one of the fewest numbers of hospital beds per capita, compared to other States," said the Mayor. "The choices between us are stark—between health and sickness, between care and apathy and, yes, between life and death. For too many of the people that we love. My message couldn't be simpler," he said. "It's time to hunker down. It's time to cancel everything. And if it isn't essential, don't do it. Don't meet up with others outside your household. Don't host a gathering, don't attend a gathering and following our targeted safer at home order. If you're able to stay home, stay home, just be smart and stay apart."RELATED: COVID Symptoms Usually Appear in This Order, Study FindsLos Angeles is at a "Tipping Point"Here is some of the Los Angeles Order:The Coronavirus is widespread in our community, and the latest data from the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health shows more Angelenos are infected with COVID-19 than ever before. 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. Under the provisions of Section 231(i) of the Los Angeles City Charter and Chapter 3, Section 8.27 of the Los Angeles Administrative Code, I hereby declare that the Safer L.A. Order, dated June 1, 2020 (subsequently revised), is temporarily withdrawn and superseded by this Order, which is necessary for the protection of life and property in the City of Los Angeles and is effective immediately:I. Subject only to the exceptions outlined in this Order, all persons living within the City of Los Angeles are hereby ordered to remain in their homes. Residents of the City of Los Angeles who are experiencing homelessness are exempt from this requirement. The City is working, along with partner government agencies and non-governmental organizations, to make more emergency shelters available for the unhoused residents of our City. City of Los Angeles officials and contracted partners responsible for homelessness outreach shall make every reasonable effort to persuade such residents to accept, if offered, temporary housing or shelter, as the Health Officer of the County of Los Angeles recommends that sheltering individuals will assist in reducing the spread of the virus and will protect the individual from potential exposure by allowing the individual access to sanitation tools. People at high risk of severe illness from COVID-19 and people who are sick are urged to stay in their residence to the extent possible except as necessary to seek medical care.II. Subject only to the exceptions outlined in this Paragraph and Paragraph V below, all businesses within the City of Los Angeles are ordered to cease operations that require in-person attendance by workers at a workplace. To the extent that business operations may be maintained by telecommuting or other remote means, while allowing all individuals to maintain shelter in their residences, this Order shall not apply to limit such business activities. III. All public and private gatherings of any number of people from more than one household are prohibited, except for outdoor faith-based services described in Paragraph 5 and participating in an in-person outdoor protest while wearing a face covering, maintaining social distancing, and observing the Los Angeles County Protocol for Public Demonstrations. This provision does not apply to gatherings of people who live within a single household or living unit. For purposes of this Order, and in relationship to private gatherings, a "household" shall not include institutional group living situations such as dormitories, fraternities, sororities, monasteries, convents, or residential care facilities, nor does it include such commercial group living arrangements as boarding houses, hotels, or motels. Private gatherings are defined as social situations that bring together people from different households at the same time in a single space or place. IV. All travel, including, without limitation, travel on foot, bicycle, scooter, motorcycle, automobile, or public transit is prohibited, subject to the exceptions in ParagraphV. Exceptions. People may lawfully leave their residences while this Order is in effect only to engage in the following activities. All businesses operating under any of the following exemptions must comply with all applicable protocols set forth by the State of California and the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health. A. Essential Activities Exempt. Certain business operations and activities are exempt from the provisions of this Order, on the grounds that they provide services that are recognized to be critical to the health and well-being of the City. Persons engaging in any of these essential activities are required to maintain reasonable social distancing practices and wear facial coverings. This includes maintaining a distance of at least six-feet away from others, frequently washing hands with soap and water for at least twenty seconds or using hand sanitizer, covering coughs or sneezes (into the sleeve or elbow, not hands), regularly cleaning high-touch surfaces, not shaking hands and wearing a cloth face covering whenever there is or can be contact with others who are non-household members in both public and private places. Children (under the age of 2); those at risk of suffocation and people with certain disabilities are not required to wear a face covering. Notwithstanding the above exceptions, all individuals over the age of 16 traveling into the City of Los Angeles from another state or country must complete and submit online a traveler form upon arrival, acknowledging that they have read and understood the State of California's travel advisory. Failure to submit the form is punishable by a fine of up to $500. The travel form and travel advisory are available at https://travel.lacity.org/.

The end of the year is prime time for savings at your favorite retailers. While Costco is big on deals throughout the year, they tend to step it up around the Holidays. Be cautious, however, when seeing giveaways advertised on Facebook and other social media sites. One circulating recently promises free groceries and even a Costco voucher. (Prepare for your next trip to the grocery store by finding out what might not be there— here are the 8 Grocery Items That May Soon Be in Short Supply.)The post, shared by "Costco US" in late November, claimed to be CEO Craig Jelinek. It offered customers who shared and commented on the post within 24 hours a Christmas Food Box worth $250 and a $35 voucher. Pictures of the CEO, as well as boxes of Costco merchandise, were attached. People were encouraged to validate their entry into the giveaway by going to getvalidate-entry.com. It was all a scam to get the email addresses, passwords, and credit card numbers of unsuspecting people, according to Komando.com.Luckily customers on Facebook discovered the scam, too, and reported it to the real Costco store. One let the official Facebook page know, with a link to the scam. Costco responded that they have "reported this scam to the appropriate personnel." Another customer commented, saying they were going to report it to Costco, too, since friends of theirs were sharing it because they thought it was real. Currently, the fake giveaway page is not available.Another fake Costco page, Costco-Stores US shared similar pictures on Nov. 30 with a giveaway sign and information about how to receive a gift from the store. As of Dec. 3, that post has one comment and is still up.To stay up to date on all Costco news, sign up for our daily newsletter!
As coronavirus deaths surpassed 2,760 yesterday—just a few hundred American souls shy of those lost on 9/11—a return to "normal" can't come soon enough. Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert and the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, discussed when we might get back to some semblance of things being OK, and said it depended on two factors. "It really is a precarious situation, very unfortunate for us," he told ABC News Prime of the current surge, which may soon be a "surge on top of a surge." "But I think we just have to do the kinds of things to limit the possibility of there being spread." Read on to find out what you can do to help stop the deaths (and save your life), and to ensure your health and the health of others, don't miss these Sure Signs You've Already Had Coronavirus.Getting Back to "Normal" Depends on Two Things, Says Dr. Fauci"Getting us back to normal is going to depend on two things," Fauci told ABC News Prime. "One is going to be continuation of a baseline degree of good public health practices." You know the fundamentals by now, but are you following them?Wear a mask consistently and correctlyAvoid crowdsStay six feet apart Opt for the outdoors more than indoors Wash your hands"The other," Fauci continues, "is we already have a highly efficacious vaccine in order to make that an effective program." Vaccines from Pfizer and Moderna, for example, should get FDA emergency approval this month, maybe as soon as this or next week. But then: "You have to have a rather large proportion of the population getting vaccinated. I would say that would be at least 70% and maybe more of the U.S. population."This may prove a challenge. "About half of U.S. adults (51%) now say they would definitely or probably get a vaccine to prevent COVID-19 if it were available today; nearly as many (49%) say they definitely or probably would not get vaccinated at this time," reports Pew Research. "Intent to get a COVID-19 vaccine has fallen from 72% in May, a 21 percentage point drop."Dr. Fauci was on TV to try to get those people to change their minds. "If we can do that, we can get a blanket of immunity over this country that as we get into the summer and early fall, we could be very close to normal, not exactly, but really close to normal," said Fauci. "So that's the reason why we encourage people to look at the data, which is sound data about the safety and the efficacy of the vaccines and go out there and get vaccinated."RELATED: COVID Symptoms Usually Appear in This Order, Study FindsDr. Fauci Has Some Words of HopeFauci was asked why he still thinks we can turn this around, given the "dark year." "I think it's a combination of what we know works, the public health measures, but also the extraordinary lift that we're going to get that help that I say is on the way with a vaccine, this vaccine right now," he said. "Getting it within less than a year of the discovery of a new virus is beyond unprecedented. It's most extraordinary. So that's the thing that gives me hope, but also I think the bravery of the American people and how we've been able to handle this as a nation, particularly the healthcare providers who put themselves and their families at risk. Every time they go to work in the morning, they are really heroes."RELATED: 7 Side Effects of Wearing a Face MaskHow to Survive the PandemicAs the doctor says: "This is real." Protect those heroes and protect yourself by following Fauci's fundamentals—wear a face mask, social distance, avoid large crowds, don't go indoors with people you're not sheltering with, practice good hand hygiene and to protect your life and the lives of others, and don't visit any of these 35 Places You're Most Likely to Catch COVID.

The U.S. is in a "very critical time" as COVID-19 cases surge nationwide and in several states in particular, said Dr. Robert Redfield, director of the Centers for Disease Control&Prevention, on Wednesday. "Unfortunately, we're experiencing substantial surge across the nation," said Redfield during an online Q&A with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation, noting that a significant number of states are in the "red zone" for new infections. Read on for his full warning, and to ensure your health and the health of others, don't miss these Sure Signs You've Already Had Coronavirus."A very critical time" for states and healthcare resourcesJust as coronavirus cases in the Northern Plains have leveled off after spiking in late fall, Redfield said the pandemic is resurging in: IndianaOhioPennsylvaniaThe Mid-Atlantic states (Maryland, Delaware, the District of Columbia, Pennsylvania, and Virginia, along with the parts of New Jersey, New York, and North Carolina)The Sun Belt (which technically includes Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, Nevada, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee and Texas)and Redfield specifically singled out California, Oregon, and Washington state."We really have an extensive pandemic now throughout the nation," he said. A million cases of COVID-19 were reported in the U.S. each week through November. So far this month, several states have set records for new cases and hospitalizations. Nationwide, the daily death rate has begun to approach the peak set back in April."In the spring, we were talking about 20,000 to 30,000 people in the hospital," said Redfield. "Now we're over 90,000 people in the hospital.""We are at a very critical time right now about being able to maintain the resilience of our healthcare system," he added.Three potential vaccines have proven to be effective in late-stage trials, and the FDA may approve the first for emergency use within days, allowing vaccinations to begin in high-risk groups like nursing-home residents and healthcare providers before the end of the month. But 75 to 80 percent of Americans will need to be vaccinated before widespread immunity is achieved, and experts say that won't be possible until the middle of 2021.RELATED: Dr. Fauci Says Most People Did This Before Catching COVID"Rough times" ahead; here's how to stay alive"The reality is December and January and February are going to be rough times," said Redfield. "I actually believe they're going to be the most difficult time in the public health history of this nation, largely because of the stress that's going to put on our healthcare system."Redfield urged all Americans to follow public-health recommendations, including social distancing, avoiding crowds, gathering outdoors more than indoors, and universal mask-wearing. He cited a Kansas study which found that counties with mask mandates experienced a six percent decline in COVID-19 cases, while counties that didn't require face masks saw a 100 percent increase. "This virus really is going to require all of us to really be vigilant about wearing a mask," he said.So do everything you can to prevent getting—and spreading—COVID-19 in the first place: Wear a face mask, get tested if you think you have coronavirus, avoid crowds (and bars, and house parties), practice social distancing, only run essential errands, wash your hands regularly, disinfect frequently touched surfaces, and to get through this pandemic at your healthiest, don't miss these 35 Places You're Most Likely to Catch COVID.

With coronavirus deaths breaking a record yesterday—more than 2,760 Americans gone within 24 hours—you're right to be concerned about catching COVID-19. Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert, warned yesterday of exactly what may put you in danger—and put you at risk of endangering someone else. "It really is a precarious situation, very unfortunate for us," he said of the current surge, which may soon be a "surge on top of a surge." "But I think we just have to do the kinds of things to limit the possibility of there being spread." Read on to find out if you should assume you're infected, and to ensure your health and the health of others, don't miss these Sure Signs You've Already Had Coronavirus.Assume You are Infected and Dangerous to Others, If You Did This"Americans who celebrated Thanksgiving with other people outside their household should assume they are infectious and a 'dangerous to others,' the White House Coronavirus Task Force is warning in a startling new report," according to ABC News, which obtained the 413-page assessment of the pandemic. "Delivered Nov. 29 to the nation's governors, but not released publicly, President Donald Trump's top pandemic advisers said it's up to state and local public health officials to alert the public as COVID-19 cases hit an all-time high.""It must be made clear that if you are over 65 or have significant health conditions, you should not enter any indoor public spaces where anyone is unmasked due to the immediate risk to your health," says the report. "If you are under 40, you need to assume you became infected during the Thanksgiving period if you gathered beyond your immediate household," the task force wrote. "Most likely, you will not have symptoms; however, you are dangerous to others and you must isolate away from anyone at increased risk for severe disease and get tested immediately," the group added.RELATED: COVID Symptoms Usually Appear in This Order, Study FindsDr. Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, explained the meaning on ABC News Prime. "We have to be really very careful—what we call community spread is generally spread by people who are not symptomatic," he said. "And the chances of a younger person who's infected of being not symptomatic is certainly pretty good. Like about 40 to 45% of the infections are people who don't have any symptoms. That's the innocent, inadvertent spreading of infection. So that was what we meant by that. If you're going to be in a situation where either you've traveled, you've been at an airport, you've been at a crowded train station, you've been in a congregate setting—really, you need to assume, as strange as that seems, you need to assume that you might actually be infected even though you have no symptoms. And for that reason wear a mask so that you can protect those around you."Dr. Fauci clarified further: "Particularly if, when you're going home to the family, you might have an elderly individual or someone with an underlying condition. If they get infected, it may not be like you namely with no symptoms. It may be. They'll wind up in the hospital with a serious consequence." To be blunt, that serious consequence can mean at worse, death, possibly in an overflowing hospital, and can include Post-COVID Syndrome, a debilitating situation in which unexplained symptoms last for months, possibly a lifetime. "That's happening all around us," said Fauci. "This isn't made up. This is the reality of what's going on right now in our country. We had over 2,000 deaths yesterday. We have between 100 and 200,000 infections per day. We have 99,000 hospitalizations. That's real stuff that's not fake. And that's the reason why we give these kinds of warnings of what people need to do."RELATED: 7 Side Effects of Wearing a Face MaskHow to Survive the PandemicAs the doctor says: "This is real." Follow Fauci's fundamentals—wear a face mask, social distance, avoid large crowds, don't go indoors with people you're not sheltering with, practice good hand hygiene and to protect your life and the lives of others, and don't visit any of these 35 Places You're Most Likely to Catch COVID.
