New stay-at-home order imminent for Orange County and others

Dr. Shruti Gohil, associate medical director of epidemiology and infection prevention at UC Irvine Medical Center, said there’s been a clear surge at the hospital over the past two weeks, including in the ICU. “We’re feeling it,” Gohil said. “We went through some of this in July, so we have some of our previously well-laid plans and any sort of lessons learned from that have been very well oiled and implemented at this stage.” … Health care workers are ready, she said.
