New COVID-19 Restrictions for 19 Counties

New COVID-19 Restrictions for 19 Counties

On Wednesday, the Governor announced guidance instructing counties that have been on the County Monitoring List for three consecutive days or more to close indoor operations for certain sectors. Within those sectors, those that are not able to continue their business through outdoor operations must close that portion of their business effective immediately for at least three (3) weeks, in order to further mitigate the spread of the virus.  In addition, all brewpubs, breweries, bars, and pubs in these counties must close, both indoors and outdoors.

The following sectors must close their indoor operations:

  • Dine-in Restaurants
  • Wineries and Tasting Rooms
  • Movie Theaters
  • Family Entertainment Centers
  • Zoos and Museums
  • Cardrooms

As of July 1, there are 19 counties on the County Monitoring List, including:

  • Contra Costa
  • Fresno
  • Glenn
  • Imperial
  • Kern
  • Kings
  • Los Angeles
  • Merced
  • Orange
  • Riverside
  • Sacramento
  • San Bernardino
  • San Joaquin
  • Santa Barbara
  • Santa Clara
  • Solano
  • Stanislaus

The State also established Strike Teams to enforce the public health orders.
