California Gov. Gavin Newsom said people "bent the curve" in the state by following the stay-at-home order.
“You have bent the curve in the state of California. The models have changed because of your behavior,” he said at a news conference.
Newsom acknowledged that the stay-home order is finite and will not be a permanent way of life.
Here's how he put it:
“We also extend a recognition in that light that this can't be a permanent state, and I want you to know it's not, it will not be a permanent state. We recognize the consequences of these stay-at-home orders have a profound impact on the economy, your personal household budget, your personal prospects around your future if you've just lost a job or you lost wages, or you're struggling with your dream and that is to keep your dream afloat as a business person that may put everything on the line."
