Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti briefed the public on the city’s coronavirus response at 5:15 p.m. Monday.

The address comes after health officials reported 9,420 cases of the virus with 320 deaths across L.A. County.

Also on Monday, Gov. Gavin Newsom said California will collaborate with Oregon and Washington on a timeline for reopening the states’ economies.

But in L.A. County, the stay-at-home order will last until at least May 15, after it was extended last week. Public health officials say if the county ends social distancing rules, nearly everyone will be infected by summer.
