On Friday, more than 195,500 new infections were reported -- a number many considered unheard of just weeks ago.

Louisiana's health department announced that about 90% of new cases reported were community spread, while 10% of them were in congregate settings.

Colorado officials said a new modeling report estimates about one out of every 49 residents in the state is infected with Covid-19 -- by far the highest prevalence since the virus arrived there.

California's governor issued a limited stay-at-home order for the counties in the state's most restrictive tier, saying nonessential work and gatherings must stop between 10 p. m. and 5 a. m.
