Despite Newsom’s hopeful message, Dr. Cameron Kaiser, Riverside County’s public health officer, stated that the county– which has currently implemented some of the state’s strictest infection containment orders– has a long method to go.
” It may be a number of more weeks and even when we are [there], it will be steady,” he said throughout a press conference Tuesday afternoon. “It will be step by action and there will be longstanding changes in the way we live and work.”
” I wish to make things completely clear to people: Don’t expect a great deal of modification,” Kaiser added. “Do not forget, even if I wreck each and every single health order that I have actually composed to date– and I definitely have no intent of doing so today– the guv’s orders still [apply] and its constraints on nonessential activities are still implemented.”
