League of California Cities


Message from League Executive Director Carolyn Coleman

Dear California City Leaders,  
Health officials across the country have warned that the coming days are going to be the hardest and most devastating to date of the coronavirus pandemic. Cases have been confirmed in 53 of 58 California counties. As of April 7, the California Department of Public Health has confirmed 15,865 cases and 374 deaths in the state. By the end of the week, there will be many more.   While the numbers are certainly grim, there is also a glimmer of hope for California. As Governor Newsom announced Tuesday, California’s efforts against COVID-19 are slowing the spread of the novel coronavirus. Experts attribute the apparent “flattening of the curve” to the early directives to curb social interaction and the public’s following of those directives. The earliest directives came from local leaders. As a result of those actions, lives are being saved in real time.  (4/8/20)
