As the coronavirus rages through California, the state is significantly rolling back its reopening plans.
Gov. Gavin Newsom announced Monday that all counties across the state are required to immediately close indoor dining, bars, movie theatres, zoos and museums. Additionally, counties on the governor’s “watch list” for troubling coronavirus trends — which now totals 30 counties where 80% of Californians live — must also shutter gyms, hair salons, places of worship, malls and non-essential offices.
In the Bay Area, Contra Costa, Marin, Napa, Solano and Sonoma are all on the watch list as of Monday. But Newsom said that he expects to add Alameda County within the next day — and that all Californians should be prepared for their counties to jump on or off the list.
