Newsom orders closure of indoor activities across California as coronavirus cases increase

California Gov. Gavin Newsom on Monday ordered the closure of indoor activities of certain businesses statewide as cases of coronavirus surge in the country’s most populous state.

Newsom, a Democrat, announced during a press briefing that all bars across the state must close-up shop and that restaurants, wineries, tasting rooms, family entertainment centers, zoos, museums and card rooms have to suspend indoor activities.

The governor also announced that all gyms, places of worship, malls, personal care services, barbershops, salons, and non-critical offices, in counties on the state’s “monitoring list” had to shut down under the new order. The order affects more than 30 counties in the state, or about 80 percent of California’s population.
