California has more people hospitalized with COVID-19 than at any time since the pandemic began, an ominous development that comes as officials warn of further virus spread after the long holiday weekend.
The rising numbers raise new concerns about hospitals filling up in the coming weeks, which has been predicted as coronavirus cases surge to unprecedented levels across the state and, in particular, Los Angeles County.
Multiple new restrictions on personal gatherings and capacity levels at stores take effect Monday. But there are concerns that the surge will get worse before it gets better because of Thanksgiving celebrations and Black Friday shopping — which, though less robust than in normal years, are likely to have caused new infections.
