LOS ANGELES (AP) — Health officials say the number of coronavirus cases in California is surging to the highest level since the start of the pandemic.

The California Department of Health and Human Services reported more than 15,000 cases Saturday and another 14,000 cases on Sunday.

They come even before the Thanksgiving holiday that has many health officials concerned. A curfew took effect Saturday requiring people to stay home from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. affecting most Californians, and Los Angeles is on the verge of an even tougher lockdown.

Meanwhile, more than 200 people at a San Francisco Bay Area racetrack have tested positive.
