Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti took to Facebook Sunday evening for a remote press conference on L.A.’s response to the coronavirus pandemic. Garcetti’s briefing reiterates and adds to Donald Trump’s press conference where he announced that he has approved the California for a State of Disaster declaration which taps into federal emergency funds to aid state effort.

Garcetti started by saying that he hoped everyone “smiled” this weekend and urges people to maintain “hope through all the headlines.” He praised Los Angeles citizens for practicing social distancing but said “It’s still isn’t enough.”

Among all of the good examples of social and physical distancing he saw in L.A. throughout the week, he saw crowds in beach parking lots, canyons and other areas of the city. That said, he announced that they have closed all group sports and recreation, public golf courses and beach parking lots.

“This is serious — six feet matters,” he reiterated. “This isn’t about you… it’s about everyone.”
