There's news out regarding a
60-day extension for California residents "affected by the COVID-19 virus", but the wording they use is so vague. Everyone was affected.
Do they mean directly contracted the virus? Or is this truly everyone in California can have an extra 60 days to file and pay?

It applies to "California taxpayers affected by the COVID-19 pandemic". According to
this FAQ, you do not need to have been directly impacted by COVID-19 to qualify. You qualify if you "experience any difficulty in filing or paying, as a result of COVID-19". Admittedly, this is still vague. I believe that it is on the honor system. Basically anyone in California who believes they experienced any difficulty with taxes can claim this 60-day extension.
