LA Mayor: 'This Was The Week That Changed Everything'
Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti began his remarks tonight with a succinct description of how monumental recent days have been:
"Good evening, Los Angeles. It's been a long week, hasn't it been? This was the week that changed everything."
He also urged everyone in the city — young and old — to stay home to prevent the spread of COVID-19. But he says you can still leave your home to do what has to be done.
"You can keep filling up your gas tank. You can keep picking up your medications. There is plenty of food — a great time to cook. There's no need to over buy for you or for your family because grocery stores, pharmacies, hardware stores will remain open. And you can still order food from restaurants for takeout, delivery or drive-through."
