Californians – DO NOT COMPLY.
Gov. Gavin Newsom issued a new statewide Stay-at-Home order on Monday and also called for the immediate closure of indoor operations at additional businesses for counties on California’s watch list including fitness centers, places of worship, hair salons and barbershops. This impacts 80% of California’s population.
Under Newsom’s new order, 30 of California’s 58 counties on the state’s monitoring list most close indoor operations at the following businesses:
- Fitness centers
- Worship centers
- Officers for non-critical sectors
- Personal care services
- Hair salons and barbershops
This impacts most of The Golden State and all of Southern California including Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, and Ventura counties.
“Counties come on in some cases, counties come off depending on the criteria that was established on the front end and their ability to mitigate trend lines,” Newsom explained.
The Northern California counties of Placer, Sonoma, Yuba and Sutter were added to the list Monday.
The new orders were a
“consequence of increase in positive rate, increase in hospitalizations and ICUs,” Newsom said.
He also said he anticipated more counties would be added to the list over the next few days.
