• Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti told CNN’s Jake Tapper Sunday (July 19) that the city is on the “brink” of issuing another stay-at-home order and conceded that Los Angeles had reopened “too quickly.” The mayor attributed the increase in spread not only to reopenings, but also to people gathering outside their households with extended family and friends. “It’s not just what’s open and closed. It’s also about what we do individually,” he said, adding that he hopes the city can be “surgical” in its response to suppressing the coronavirus. “I want to go into those factories where we’re seeing spread. … I think we have to be surgical rather than a cleaver that would just shut everything down,” he said.
