Experts say California is entering the second wave of infections as the state reopens and people get lax on masking and social distancing for a virus that spreads when those precautionary measures are not followed.

The 500 infections (and climbing) outbreak at San Quentin in Marin County, caused by prison officials refusing to heed the warnings to decrease the prison population, could pose a threat to the Bay Area as the sickest among them are relocated to hospitals around the state, say UCSF health experts. One infected inmate has passed away.
