LOS ANGELES (AP) — Californians awoke to a new reality after the governor issued stay-at-home orders for nearly 40 million people amid the coronavirus outbreak. The move by Gov. Gavin Newsom was the most sweeping in the country in the effort to curb the pandemic. Normally congested freeways were free of traffic and city streets remained mostly empty Friday. The order was a stunning development and further blow to businesses and workers. California is one of the hardest-hit states with 1,055 confirmed cases and 19 deaths as of Friday. Residents have been told to stay 6 feet away from others, not gather in groups and wash their hands frequently.
