SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) – California Gov. Gavin Newsom says it will defeat the purpose of letting some counties reopen more quickly if they start attracting visitors from elsewhere. Newsom says the state wants a “regional focus” on reopening. His remarks Wednesday come as the state has approved 17 counties to move faster than the state in easing stay-at-home orders. They are mostly rural counties in inland Northern California. Meanwhile in Southern California, four large counties struggling to meet the state’s benchmarks for reopening sent a letter asking for a meeting with the governor. San Diego, Orange, Riverside and San Bernardino counties want to move more quickly than the state allows.
