Dr. Mark Ghaly, California Health and Human Services Secretary, held a news conference on the pandemic response in the state.
Ghaly discussed when the state decides to use the "dimmer switch," the phrase used to refer to dialing back the state's reopening.
"We will always have that finger on the dimmer switch. We are not afraid to use it," Ghaly said. "We continue to watch the data very closely, and if we need to do even more with our strategies of closing, you know, changing and modifying further and maybe even considering other closures, we will do that."
