Indoor businesses in LA County to close immediately, bars to close all operations statewide.

On Monday, Governor Gavin Newsom ordered additional L.A. County closures and a number of statewide closures as positive COVID-19 cases continue to soar. While bars, indoor restaurants, wineries, theatres, museums and family entertainment centers have already been closed by Newsom in L.A. County for three weeks, the same will now apply to the whole of California for at least three consecutive days.

Malls, fitness centers and personal care businesses are among additional closures in counties on the monitoring list (which includes LA, Orange and Ventura County) for at least three consecutive days.

“As a consequence in increase of positivity rate, an increase in hospitalizations and ICUs… today we are announcing additional statewide actions as it relates to our stay-at-home order,” Newsom said.
