We ask you to cover your mouth and nose to protect others, especially since you can be infected with COVID-19 and have no symptoms of illness.“… Even if you tested negative, that negative test result only tells you your status the day you were tested,” she said. “You could easily become infected the very next day and unknowingly pass COVID-19 onto others.”Ferrer’s comments came one day after Gov. Gavin Newsom mandated that Californians wear face coverings in virtually all settings outside the home. Los Angeles County has had a similar mandate in place since mid-May, while the city of Los Angeles requires masks at all times outside the home.Some opponents of mask requirements, particularly in Orange County, have loudly protested that they are an imposition on personal freedom, and incite fear among the populace, preventing people from visiting local businesses.But Ferrer stressed the urgency for people to wear the masks anytime they are associating with people outside their own households, saying it will prevent a reversal of downward trends in coronavirus spread. And she said it will ensure that businesses can remain open.The county on Friday reported another 38 deaths due to the coronavirus, lifting the county’s total to 3,063. The county also recorded another 1,414 confirmed cases of the virus, bringing the overall total to 79,609.While the numbers of deaths and cases continued to rise, Ferrer outlined statistics showing that key indicators of the virus’ spread — most notably the rate of deaths and hospitalizations — were trending in the right direction.She noted that the county’s seven-day average of deaths has been declining since mid-April, and said the average number of daily deaths has dropped from 45 or 46 in early May to between 20 and 30 now.Hospitalization rates also steadily declined and have plateaued, she said. She noted that there has been a slight increase in hospitalizations in the past few days, but that could be a result of hospitals testing everyone who comes into the facility, regardless of why they are there.Ferrer said county officials will be keeping close watch on the hospitalization numbers.But she also noted that the availability of hospital rooms and ICU beds is adequate to handle demand, and hospitals have sufficient supplies of personal protective equipment for healthcare workers.Ferrer said those indicators are all used when county officials decide whether to allow more businesses to open. The county’s health order was relaxed Friday morning, allowing businesses such as nail salons, tattoo parlors, bars, casinos and spas to reopen.“The most important data continues to be looking at our death data and our hospitalization data and our rate of positivity,” she said. “As I just showed you, all of the indicators really point to the fact that we are fairly stable, and that we in fact continue to slow the spread of COVID-19. … As we reopen, we need to be particularly careful to do everything we can, both individually and as businesses, to make sure our environments are as safe as possible. If we continue to do that, we’ll continue to have success on the re- openings.”The rate of people testing positive for the virus was 8% as of Friday, a number that has remained largely unchanged for weeks.Ferrer said if any of the key indicators begin rising, the county will have to consider whether to reimplement restrictions.“We cannot overwhelm the health system,” she said.

Eduardo MunozAlvarez/VIEWpress/Corbis via Getty Images(MORRISTOWN, N.J.) — New Jersey prosecutors have charged a school bus driver with two counts of death by auto in connection with the double-fatal crash that killed a student and teacher from Paramus last week, according to the State Superior Court Clerk’s Office in Morristown.Hudy Muldrow, 77, was driving the bus that collided with a dump truck in Mount Olive on Thursday, killing 10-year-old fifth-grader Miranda Vargas and teacher Jennifer Williamson, 51.In a news release from the Morris County Prosecutor’s Office, authorities said the bus that Muldrow was driving as well as two other school buses had been taking students and teachers from East Brook Middle School on a field trip to Waterloo Village that morning.All three buses “missed a turn” on their journey to Waterloo Village, the release said, and all three attempted to correct their mistake. The two other buses arrived at Waterloo; however, according to the release, Muldrow “is alleged to have turned Bus #2 to the left in an apparent attempt to gain access to the official-use only access point located between the East and Westbound lanes of Route 80.”“Hudy Muldrow turned Bus #2 so that it was positioned in an almost-perpendicular direction in relation to the lanes of travel on Route 80 Westbound,” which is a three-lane highway. At that point, “Bus #2 was impacted by a dump truck that was traveling in the center lane of Route 80 Westbound.”Authorities said that in addition to killing Miranda and Williamson, the crash had caused numerous injuries to others on the bus as well as to the dump truck driver.“The full extent of the non-fatal injuries has yet to be determined, but range from minor to multiple serious and potentially life-threatening injuries. … The investigation into this incident remains active and ongoing, and additional charges may be sought in the future,” the release said.On Tuesday, a New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission spokesperson revealed that since getting his driver’s license in 1975, Muldrow had a total of 14 suspensions, eight speeding tickets, a careless driving ticket and a ticket for an improper turn in 2010.Muldrow, who began driving school buses in 2013, currently has a valid driver’s license that’s not suspended. He also has no active points and has the appropriate commercial license to drive a school bus.Muldrow’s son, Hudy Muldrow Jr., told NJ.com on Tuesday that his father was a good driver.When Hudy Muldrow Jr. was asked about his father’s driving violations, he said: “I don’t know anything about that. I have nothing else to say.”Muldrow surrendered to New Jersey State Police and was booked into the Morris County Jail to await arraignment Friday.According to the Paramus School Board, a candlelight vigil is planned Thursday for both Miranda and Williamson.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

ABC NewsBy MAX GOLEMBO, ABC News(NEW YORK) — Three storms continue to march across the country with the third storm reaching the West Coast overnight where thousands have been forced to evacuate.The first storm is leaving the Northeast Wednesday morning and this is the same storm that brought the deadly EF-3 tornado with winds of 150 mph to northern Alabama.The second storm moved through the Rockies and the Plains overnight and is now expected to bring snow to the Southeast.On Tuesday, a 17-vehicle pileup shut down I-25 in Colorado due to the slick roads from that second storm with, locally, some areas in the West already getting 3 feet of snow.On Wednesday, 16 states in the East are under snow and ice alerts for heavy snow and slick roads.Even Raleigh, North Carolina, is under a winter weather advisory for some slick roads and a winter storm warning has been issued for the North Carolina mountains.The snowfall totals include a general area of 1 to 3 inches of snow forecast from Missouri to Virginia and North Carolina, but in the southern Appalachians up to a half a foot of snow could accumulate.In the West, millions are bracing for the third storm to bring mudslides, flash flooding, heavy snow and avalanche danger.This storm will be fueled by an atmospheric river — a long plume of moisture moving across the Pacific with the jet stream — aimed at California over the next few days.Already, overnight winds gusted in California between 60 to 75 mph bringing down trees into homes north of the San Francisco Bay area.On Tuesday afternoon and evening, up to 30 inches of snow fell in parts of northern California and more is expected to fall Wednesday.This atmospheric river will deliver up to 10 inches of rain to parts of California where mudslides are expected in the recent burn areas.In the Sierra Nevada, up to 100 inches of snow is possible — more than 8 feet of snow.Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio.
