The share of tests returning as positive has grown to over 16 percent.Garcetti urged people to cancel any plans to visit loved ones. While there has been positive news about vaccines, the mayor said: “That’s no reason to let our guard down. It’s no reason for a Christmas wave to build on a Thanksgiving wave that’s nearly drowning us already.”Sam Brock14h ago / 4:27 AM UTCAn inside look at University of Arkansas basketball’s Covid protocolsThe Associated Press15h ago / 3:08 AM UTCColorado begins
