On July 1, 2020, as a result of rapid increases in the number of COVID-19 cases throughout California, and on the heels of the Fourth of July long weekend, Governor Gavin Newsom instructed businesses in 19 counties across the state to roll back their reopenings for at least the next three weeks. The Governor’s instructions require the closure of:
- All indoor, in-person dining at restaurants (outdoor dining and takeout are still permitted, so long as social distancing protocols are followed);
- Indoor tasting rooms and wineries;
- Indoor museums, zoos, and aquariums;
- Indoor movie theaters and family entertainment centers; and
- Cardrooms and satellite wagering facilities.
