California has pushed efforts in the last week to procure medical supplies, address at risk populations and set-up alternative care sites to take pressure off healthcare facilities during the Covid-19 pandemic. We have touched on California's current reported numbers, ethnicity breakdowns, testing in the state, medical facilities, at risk populations, jobs, businesses and a list of current suspensions and moratoriums.
At today's County of Orange press conference for covid-19 Sheriff Don Barnes says he has filed an order with the court to allow inmate release up to 60-days early. The order filed early last week was originally turned down because Orange County jails are not at full capacity. An amended order allows Orange County jails to early release inmates with 60-days or less on their sentences.
