LMBC NEWS – California Governor Gavin Newsmom has ordered the shutdown of bars and other indoor activities following the surge of new coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) cases.

In a press conference Monday, the governor announces the closure of indoor businesses including restaurants, bars, wineries, movie theaters, zoos and museums.

The health department last July 11 has reported an additional of 8, 460 new infections in the state, which brings the total confirmed cases to 320, 804.

Since the pandemic, the health department said 7, 017 Covid-19 deaths were recorded in California.

“We’ve made this point on multiple occasions and that is we’re moving back into a modification mode of our original stay-at-home order. This continues to be a deadly disease,” Newsmom told a press conference.

Strict restrictions were also up in the state’s 30 counties which included Los Angeles, Napa, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, Sacramento, San Diego, and Ventura, among others.

These counties represent 80 percent of the state’s total population, he said.

All indoor operations in gyms, places of worship, non-critical offices, personal care services, hair salons, barbershops, and malls in these 30 counties were also put to halt by the governor.
