Gov. Gavin Newsom is holding a press conference to give an update on the state’s response to the coronavirus pandemic amid a “concerning” surge in cases.
Gov. Gavin Newsom on Monday July 13, 2020 ordered 30 out of 58 counties in California to close indoor operations for additional sectors due to the risk of COVID-19 spread. Any additional openings connected to county variances are no longer allowed. Restaurants and some other business must close all indoor operations in all counties in California. Bars must close all indoor and outdoor operations.
The closures in 30 counties include:
Offices for non-critical sectors
Personal care services
Hair salons and barbershops
Gov. Newsom said that California is reverting to a modified version of its stay-at-home order.
Coronavirus hospitalizations and positive tests for new Coronavirus cases are on the rise, according to Newsom. The number of intensive care unit patients is also moderately increasing, according to Gov. Newsom.
Effective today, all counties are required to close indoor operations in a number of different areas. The list is similar to an order that counties on the state’s monitoring list were already under, including Los Angeles County.
The indoor closures in all 58 counties include …
Wineries and tasting rooms
Family entertainment centers
Zoos and museums
Bars must close all indoor and outdoor operations in all 58 counties in California.
“COVID-19 is not going away anytime soon,” Newsom said. He emphasized “limiting your mixing with people outside your household — and if you have to mix, do it outside when you can.”
Newsom also reminded people to wear a mask, physically distance, and wash your hands.
