Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “LIVE: Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti Holds Covid-19 Briefing Ahead of New Restaurant Restrictions” – below is their description.
(Nov. 23) Watch live as Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti holds a news conference to give an update on Covid-19 in Los Angeles, California, on Monday, November 23, 2020. America’s most infected metropolitan area will be shutting down outdoor dining again. The Greater Los Angeles area added 2,718 new coronavirus cases Sunday, with the five-day average exceeding the 4,000 threshold that triggered additional measures where restaurants, breweries and bars will once again limit their businesses to just pick-up and delivery. The new curbs will start at 10 p.m. Wednesday, right before the Thanksgiving holiday. “If our cases and hospitalizations continue to increase, we will need to issue further restrictions to protect our health-care system and prevent more deaths,” Barbara Ferrer, director of public health for Los Angeles County, said in a statement Sunday. Sunday’s case count brought the total for the Greater Los Angeles area to 364,520, the highest among counties in the U.S. — and exceeding even those in nations including Canada, Saudi Arabia and Austria. The Los Angeles area, with a population of about 10 million, had already imposed additional measures starting Friday night, including limiting capacity for retail stores, offices and restaurants. Non-essential shops and restaurants must also close from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m., except for takeout, delivery and pick-up. Still, the county — the most populous in the U.S. — was spared from a lockdown. A five-day average of 4,500 cases could trigger a three-week “Safer at Home” order. The hospitalization of more than 2,000 people a day would also lead to similar curbs. Ahead of the Thanksgiving break, officials across the U.S. have urged residents to avoid travel and scale back gatherings — or cancel them altogether. Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti reminded residents to avoid gatherings for the holiday. “Your bubble is bigger than you think,” he said. California, which had a record number of cases earlier in the weekend, started its 10 p.m.-to-5 a.m. curfew on Saturday night across most of the state, affecting areas that encompass 37 million people, or 94% of the population. Separately, Governor Gavin Newsom said three of his children were exposed to a highway patrol officer who tested positive for Covid-19. The entire family tested negative Sunday and will be quarantined for 14 days.

In This Story: Thanksgiving
Thanksgiving is best known as a holiday celebrated in the United States on the fourth Thursday of November every year, usually through feasting, parades and travel to see family and friends, though celebrations have been scaled back during the 2020 coronavirus pandemic.
The roots of the modern celebration lie in settlers celebrating their arrival in the Americas in the early 1600’s. It has been a public holiday since 1941 due to federal legislation, an annual tradition in the United States by presidential proclamation since 1863 and by state legislation since the Founding Fathers of the United States.
Traditionally, Thanksgiving has been a celebration of the blessings of the year, including the harvest. What Americans call the “Holiday Season” generally begins with Thanksgiving. The first day after Thanksgiving Day—Black Friday—marks the start of the Christmas shopping season.
