Gov. Newsom on Thursday issued a state-wide order for California residents to stay at home. He projected that 56 percent of the state's population could be infected by COVID-19 over an eight-week period if mitigation efforts were ignored.

We'll get the latest on Gov. Newsom's order, and the shortage of personal protective gear.
