Governor Newsom just issued a public health directive to increase social distancing:
-Home isolation of seniors 65 and older and with chronic health conditions
-All bars and nightclubs must close
-Restaurants must space people out and can provide takeout
-Homeless people will be transitioned out of encampments and into healthier settings, for example, hotels and motels.
Please everyone be smart and safe!
Faced with mounting coronavirus infections, California Gov. Gavin Newsom on Sunday issued sweeping new restrictions in California, calling for home isolation of everyone in the state over age 65 and people with chronic disease, both high-risk populations.
He also asked for closure of bars, wineries, night clubs and brew pubs, and called for restaurants to reduce their occupancy by half. He called that “deep social distancing” and a “pragmatic response to the moment.”
The dramatic announcement, designed to keep people away from each other, stopped short of closing restaurants. Instead, the governor said they can also operate at reduced capacity and with curbside food service and at-home food deliveries.
