About this Deal
|California is moving quickly to reclose some sectors of its economy that have only been open for a few weeks as the coronavirus continues to spike in the state.|
Gov. Gavin Newsom during a daily tele-briefing ordered the immediate closure of certain businesses with indoor spaces, including dining in restaurants, movie theaters and museums, in 19 counties that have seen positive cases of the novel coronavirus rise in recent days. The counties account for more than 70 percent of the state’s population and include Los Angeles and Orange counties, as well as Santa Clara County.
“The bottom line is the spread of this virus is continuing at a rate that is particularly concerning,” Newsom said of the decision, which he alluded to on Tuesday.
The governor also expanded a closure of bars in seven counties enacted on Sunday to all 19 counties that have been ordered to stop most indoor business.
