Gov. Newsom Orders 19 Counties Across the State to Reverse Course

On Wednesday, July 1, Governor Newsom ordered restaurants and other indoor activities in much of the state to close down for a three-week period, due to concerns about rising COVID-19 metrics.

The Governor’s Health Order, issued by the California Department of Public Health (CDPH), requires the closure of indoor dining, wineries and tasting rooms, entertainment centers, movie theaters, zoos, museums and card rooms in 19 counties. Most of these businesses had been permitted to open under previous phases of the Governor’s Resilience Roadmap.

Establishments will still be permitted to operate in outdoor spaces, such as restaurant patios, but will need to close indoor areas. Restaurants will also be permitted to continue providing delivery and takeout food services.

The counties affected by the Order, all of which were on the State’s monitoring list for the past three days, are the following:

  • 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

The state also ordered closure of all business at bars, brewpubs, breweries and pubs in those counties, most of which had already been closed by the Governor’s Order earlier this week.

According to California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services Director Mark Ghilarducci, CalOES will also launch “strike teams” to help enforce the order, working with local health officials to target businesses that are not in compliance.
