“California Gov. Gavin Newsom on Wednesday announced new restrictions for 19 counties on the state’s watch list due to the increased spread of COVID-19 and ‘increased concern,'” as the San Francisco Chronicle is reporting.
“Newsom ordered the counties — which include Contra Costa, Santa Clara and Solano in the Bay Area — to halt, or not reopen, indoor operations at restaurants, wineries and tasting rooms, movie theaters, family entertainment centers, zoos, museums and card rooms.
“‘This doesn’t mean restaurants shut down,’ Newsom said. ‘It means we try to take as many activities as we can, these concentrated activities, and move them outdoors, which is a way of mitigating the spread of this virus.’
“Bars in the counties must shut down or remain closed if they had not yet reopened.
“The new orders will remain in effect for at least three weeks.”
