California’s governor on Thursday issued an unprecedented statewide ‘stay at home order’ directing the state’s 40 million residents to hunker down in their homes for the foreseeable future in the face of the fast-spreading coronavirus pandemic.
Governor Gavin Newsom’s directive marks the largest and most sweeping government clampdown yet in the worsening public health crisis brought on by the COVID-19 outbreak, which he predicted could infect more than half the state within eight weeks.
‘We are confident the people of California will abide by it, they will meet this moment,’ Newsom, a Democrat in his first term as governor of the nation’s most populous state, said at a late-afternoon news briefing from the state capital in Sacramento.
‘They’ll step up as they have over the last number of weeks to protect themselves, to protect their families and to protect the broader community in this great state and the world we reside in.’
Coronavirus was classed a pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO) earlier this month, leading countries such as Italy, Spain and the UK to implement nationwide lockdowns.
Meanwhile, Kendall’s sister Kylie Jenner has admitted she ‘loves’ being at home during the pandemic.
The siblings’ parent Caitlyn Jenner has been keeping in touch with the 22-year-old beauty via FaceTime every day since California was put into lockdown in a bid to slow the spread of COVID-19.
The former athlete insisted the make-up mogul is actually enjoying being confined to her mansion as she can spend every minute of every day with her two-year-old daughter Stormi.
Caitlyn, 70, recently told Entertainment Tonight: ‘I think Kylie’s happy because she’s at home and spending a lot of time with Stormi and she loves that.’

While Kylie has Stormi – whom she has with her ex-partner Travis Scott – to keep her company, Kendall is in Palm Springs with some of her friends.
The TV star explained: ‘Kendall has a couple of friends out in Palm Springs. Everyone’s kind of coping with it.
‘We just have to realise that the health of our country is much more important, and suck it up business-wise. And when things stop and things go back to normal at some point, we’ll fire back up again. Right now, everyone’s just laying low.
‘Kylie is a homebody. Kendall likes getting out, but [Kylie] loves being at home. She likes cooking, loves being with little Stormi. And she’s doing just fine.’
