California Orders Shutdown of Indoor Restaurants & Bars


On Monday, California Governor Gavin Newsom ordered the closing of indoor restaurants, movie theaters, bars, and other recently-opened establishments across the state. As COVID-19 cases continue to rise, the Governor deemed it necessary to shut down indoor businesses until further notice to help slow the spread of the virus.

In an effort to promote resident safety, Newsom furthered restricted businesses in 29 counties, ordering the closure of houses of worship, gyms, hair salons, shopping malls, non-critical work sectors, and barbershops. The Governor reminded business owners that these measures were only temporary and safety should be everyone’s top priority, especially during a pandemic.
