California Reimposes Coronavirus Restrictions For More Than 28 Million Residents

More than 28 million Californians live in counties where restaurant dining rooms, bars and other indoor facilities are being told to stay shut or close as the number of coronavirus cases continue to worry state officials.

The closures affect 19 counties representing 72% of the state's population, and include restaurants, museums, zoos, movie theaters, family entertainment, and card rooms, Gov. Gavin Newsom said Wednesday.

The governor's announcement included bars, pubs, breweries and wineries that don't also serve food. Restaurants can serve takeout meals.

"Bottom line is, the spread of this virus continues at a rate that is particularly concerning," said Newsom, who added that the percentage of people who test positive is rising. These restrictions will remain in place for at least three weeks, Newsom said.
