CALIFORNIA (VVNG.com) — California Governor Newsom on Sunday called for bars, wineries, nightclubs, and brewpubs to close amidst the Covid-19 worldwide pandemic.
During the news conference, the Governor also urged for the home isolation of seniors 65+ and people with chronic conditions.
He also called for restaurants to reduce their occupancy by half and to implement “deep social distancing.” The Governor declined to call for a full closure of restaurants and said, “we need people to be able to pick up food.”
The aggressive and necessary changes are designed to keep people away from each other and slow the transmission rate.
According to the Governor, closing of bars, brewpubs and nightclubs is necessary because “we need to anticipate spread,” and wasn’t concerned about enforcement because Californias are complying with other directives.
“We have absolute expectation this will be socialized in real time,” he said. “We have the capacity to enforce if necessary.”
The Governor said that coronavirus cases in CA have grown by 14% in the past day to 335, with six total deaths.To follow updates to this article and more, join our newsgroup on Facebook with over 165,000 members. Like our Facebook page, and Follow us on Instagram and Twitter.
