Governor Newsom Orders Additional COVID-19 Actions Including Closing Indoor Dining in Some Counties

Sacramento, CA....Governor Gavin Newsom and the California Department of Public Health today released guidance directing counties that have been on the County Monitoring List for three consecutive days or more to close indoor operations for certain sectors which promote the mixing of populations beyond households and make adherence to physical distancing and wearing face coverings difficult. The guidance applies for a minimum of three weeks and is subject to an extension based on epidemiologic indicators. These sectors may modify operations to provide services outside or by pick-up. In addition, all brewpubs, breweries, bars, and pubs in these counties must close immediately, both indoor and outdoor.




Today's guidance applies to the following sectors:
  • Indoor Dine-in restaurants
  • Indoor Wineries and Tasting Rooms
  • Indoor Family Entertainment Centers
  • Indoor Movie Theaters
  • Indoor Zoos and Museums
  • Indoor Cardrooms
"California is seeing the virus spreading at alarming rates in many parts of the state, and we are taking immediate action to slow the spread of the virus in those areas," said Governor Newsom. "We bent the curve in the state of California once, and we will bend the curve again. But we're going to have to be tougher, and that's why we are taking this action today."

 

Community spread of COVID-19 continues to be a concern across the state, and in particular for counties on the County Monitoring List. This puts vulnerable populations, including older Californians and those who have chronic conditions or compromised immune systems, at higher risk of becoming seriously ill due to the virus.

"Today's action is necessary to help slow the spread of this virus," said Dr. Sonia Angell, State Public Health Officer and Director of the California Department of Public Health. "We put ourselves and our community at greatest risk for COVID 19 when we mix with people who don't live with us. And if you go out, wear a face covering, keep your distance, wash your hands frequently and limit unnecessary indoor activities that increase the risk of exposure."

 

Today's order applies to counties that have been on the County Monitoring List for three or more consecutive days. Combined these 19 counties represent approximately 72% of California's population.

 


Impacted Counties as of July 1, 2020
  • Contra Costa
  • Fresno
  • Glenn
  • Imperial
  • Kern
  • Kings
  • Los Angeles
  • Merced
  • Orange
  • Riverside
  • Sacramento
  • San Bernardino
  • San Joaquin
  • Santa Barbara
  • Santa Clara
  • Solano
  • Stanislaus
  • Tulare
  • Ventura
 

Sectors included in today's guidance are all high risk of transmission due to a number of features of the businesses and the behaviors that occur within them. These sectors, foundationally, are settings where groups convene and may mix with others for prolonged periods of time often without a face covering. Additionally, physical movement within the establishment, duration of time spent in the establishment, and the degree of social mixing among individuals and groups outside one's household are all significant in these sectors, which substantially elevates the risk of transmission even where face coverings can be worn. Furthermore, in some of these sectors centered on eating and drinking, compliance with face coverings is not possible for the full duration of time someone spends in these establishments.

 

California will continue to update and issue guidance based on the best available public health data and the best practices currently employed. All industry or sector guidance documents that have been issued to date, including all infectious control measures outlined in those guidance documents, apply in outdoor settings, and thus must be adhered to.

Finally, as we approach the 4th of July holiday weekend, California is recommending that counties with mandatory closures cancel firework shows, and is reminding all Californians that they should not gather with people they do not live with and avoid crowds. Additionally, all parking facilities at state beaches in Southern California and the Bay Area will be closed for the upcoming weekend. In counties that close local beaches, the State will follow suit and close state beaches. Other state parks will remain open, with measures in place to reduce visitation and limit overcrowding.

More information about the state's COVID-19 guidance is on the California Department of Public Health's Guidance web page.

I guess this doesn't apply to the Murphys Hotel and the Arnold Peddlers Faire both of which will attract unnecessary Flatlanders
to the area this weekend and spread the virus just to get the almighty dollar.

    So if the Governor was serious about this he would close those counties effected to travel both in and out! That would in turn help us out as well as Lake Tahoe. As for the hotel and peddler event, do large gatherings fall within guide lines? Yes or no to the County Health Offical.

      It says clearly that people should not gather with people we don’t know and avoid crowds.
      Gathering with strangers in a crowd is exactly what’s happening at Murphys Hotel on July 4.

      Ignoring Request To Wear Masks
      Posted on: 2020-07-01 18:42:35   By: Anonymous
       
      I go to a few businesses in the county. The employees are wearing masks.
      Most patrons don't.
      What is so patriotic about being selfish?
      This is not about freedom as many say, this is being ignorant, and proud of being ignorant.

      What kind of person prides themselves on being ignorant, not caring about their neighbors?

      Republicans

        That's bullish*t and you know it. This virus has nothing to do if you are Democrat or Republican as we are all in this together. You are a prime example of a person that will put the blame on others when you are the fuc*ing problem.

            Fox, and even Pense said Friday this is about freedom, rights, not wearing a mask is showing your freedom.
            Watch Fox and get programed to believe the Covid virus is a hoax.
            Many say this- Republicans- Dumpers.

            Dump is a traitor, doesn't want intel briefings that include evidence against his sponsor- Russia.

            If you believe this is all a hoax , and Dump is a great American caring for it's people- you also are a Dump cult member .

              I went to Big Trees Market on Saturday & my wife & I were 2 of 4 people that had on masks. Get ready for the surge & the next shutdown...good job Trumpers....you will hurt even more of your fellow Americans. Real patriots...you’re so brave.

                The virus doesn't exist in Arnold so join the crowd and don't wear the masks.

                  Democrats should wear masks the rest of their lives to hide their faces. Maybe they should just abort themselves rather than take the chance of dying from Covid-19.

                So move or travel to somewhere that has grocery delivery. Why in the hell are you there complaining if you don't like it? Obviously you can't fit in and are not happy in the community, and are now seeking to blame it on the community members there long before you.

    I suggest all you mask shamers show up at the Murphys Hotel with your masks on, picket signs and protest. That would be great fun and entertainment.
