California Governor Gavin Newsom confirmed this week that his office is eyeing a potential statewide curfew to slow the spread of CoVID-19; releasing few details on how the new rules would be enforced.
“We also are considering – full disclosure and a little bit of a preview – the notion of a curfew,” Newsom said at a press conference. “Before you jump in terms of your mindset of whether that’s a good idea or a bad idea, we are assessing that as well.”
CA is experiencing the fastest #COVID19 increase we have seen yet. We are sounding the alarm and pulling an emergency brake.
We must do all we can – government at all levels and Californians – to flatten the curve again as we have done before. https://t.co/S1dtEoXy83

'ROUTINE ERROR': 6,700 North Carolina Residents ‘Incorrectly Told They Have Coronavirus’ via Text
Nearly 7,000 residents in North Carolina were told via text message last week that they tested positive for the Coronavirus despite not actually having contracted the disease.
“More than 6,700 individuals in Mecklenburg County in North Carolina were told in a text message sent from Mecklenburg County Health Department on Friday that they tested positive for COVID-19 and over 500 people were told through a county email that they were also infected with the novel coronavirus. But the results were incorrect due to a technical error by Health Space, the company they use for contact tracing, according to a statement on the county’s website,” reports Fox News.
“An error during routine maintenance last Friday resulted in a county data vendor sending erroneous texts and email messages to people saying they were positive for COVID-19,” the statement on the county website said.
“Very quickly we began to work with the vendor to understand the issue and make sure that it did not continue. Once corrected we were told that 6,727 text messages and 541 emails were sent to individuals who were already in their system. We then worked with the vendor to send a corrected text/email to all that received the erroneous one,” the email stated in part.
