Coronavirus: The most important things for Friday, April 17, into the weekend

Gov. Gavin Newsom has said that people will still be wearing masks. School schedules might need to be staggered. Restaurants might need to be redesigned to allow for social distancing. Mass gatherings such as concerts and sporting events might have to wait a long time to come back.

In Los Angeles County, Public Health Director Barbara Los Angeles News Ferrer said certain strategies need to be in place before the county lifts its health order, “later on in the month of May, in most likelihood.”

“What we’re going to be working on as part of our recovery is figuring out how we can, in fact, get more people back to work,” she said.


One thing is clear: L.A. restaurants are already at work trying to figure out how to safely reopen.
