With coronavirus cases recently on the rise in California, Gov. Gavin Newsom ordered all counties to close many indoor activities, including dining inside restaurants.
Besides eateries, Newsom said indoor wineries, tasting rooms, movie theaters, family entertainment centers, zoos, and museums should close now. Those that can should offer outdoor areas of service. Bars must close all operations.
Newsom said there have been increases in the rate of positive cases and instances of community transmission.
"We're seeing an increase in the spread of the virus," the governor said. "That's why it's incumbent upon all us to recognize soberly that Covid-19 is not going away any time soon."
Thirty of the 58 counties that are on the state's monitoring list will need to close fitness centers, places of worship, offices for non-critical sectors, personal care services, hair salons and barbershops, and indoor malls under the new order.
