Newsom warns of reopening setbacks as coronavirus cases surge

Gov. Gavin Newsom said Monday that more California counties are poised to move backward on the state’s reopening system as COVID cases increase.

Californians will find out their county’s status on Tuesday when Health and Human Services Secretary Dr. Mark Ghaly does his weekly reopening tier update.

Ghaly said Monday that counties seeing increased transmission rates have a common theme: private household gatherings identified as a “major source of spread.”
