California Gov. Gavin Newsom ordered Monday all counties in the state to close indoor activities at restaurants, bars, wineries, tasting rooms, movie theaters, family entertainment centers, zoos and museums.

The statewide order is effective today, Newsom said at a news conference. These sectors will need to move activities outdoors if possible. 

Here’s a list of closures that affect all counties:

  • Dine-in restaurants
  • Bars, brewpubs, breweries, and pubs ordered to close indoor and outdoor operations statewide
  • Wineries and tasting rooms
  • Movie theaters and family entertainment centers
  • Zoos and museums
  • Cardrooms

Additionally, 30 counties currently on California’s monitoring list must close fitness centers, places of worship, offices for non-critical sectors, personal care services, hair salons and barbershops, and indoor malls, according to Newsom’s order.

The 30 counties represent about 80% of the state’s population.

The California Department of Public Health on Monday reported 8,358 new coronavirus cases and 23 new deaths. There are a total of 329,162 cases of coronavirus in California and at least 7,040 people have died from the virus in the state.
