California Gov. Gavin Newsom has put the nation's most populous state on a stay-at-home order.
It expands to nearly 40 million people restrictions he said already applied to about half the state.
He said late Thursday that the statewide restriction on any non-essential movement outside the home is needed to control the spread of the coronavirus that threatens to overwhelm the state's medical system.
The Los Angeles Lakers also announced two players tested positive for the coronavirus.
"Both players are currently asymptomatic, in quarantine and under the care of the team’s physician," a statement posted on Twitter said. "All players and members of the Lakers staff are being asked to continue to observe self-quarantine and shelter at home guidelines, closely monitor their health, consult with their personal physicians and maintain constant communication with the team."
