A declaration of a state of emergency is a preparedness measure. It authorizes government agencies to mobilize resources quickly to respond to any noted threat. For this reason, while there are still only a few known active coronavirus cases in California, Governor Newsom and Mayor Garcetti have declared an official state of emergency for both the State of California and the City of Los Angeles, to allocate the resources necessary to preparing for and preventing the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus.

That’s great. Perhaps they could help my 17 yr old son & I, BOTH with compromised immune systems, get some hand sanitizer, Clorox wipes & some toilet paper, since apparently we live in a community of panicked hoarders!
Saying people can live on the streets has put us all at great danger. It’s not compassionate to allow homeless encampments.
