Newsom: Restaurants, Bars Must Close Indoor Operations, Offers 4th of July Guidance

by ECT

Effective immediately,the California Public Health is now requiring counties that have been on the County Monitoring List for at least 3 days to move certain sectors outdoors or close. Newsom did say businesses can stay open if they move them outdoors.

The announcement came at the noon press conference where California broke a single day record of coronavirus infections with 6,367 cases. In response, the Governor kept his promise to “toggle back” reopening by ordering certain businesses to close indoor operations.

This applies to the following counties:

  • Contra Costa
  • Fresno
  • Glenn
  • Imperial
  • Kern
  • Kings
  • LA
  • Merced
  • Orange
  • Riverside
  • Sacramento
  • San Bernardino
  • San Joaquin
  • Santa Barbara
  • Santa Clara
  • Solano
  • Stanislaus
  • Tulare
  • Ventura

4th of July Weekend:

  • counties with mandatory closures should consider cancelling fire work shows
  • Californians should not gather with people you do not live with
  • Avoid crowds

Newsom said they will go after people who are thumbing their nose at this and said it was more than wearing a mask, but rather health and safety. In total, there will be 7 agencies involved with enforcement.

  • Teams will target non-compliant workplaces
  • Strike Teams include: ABC, CalOSHA, Dept. of Business Oversight, Dept. of Consumer Affairs, CHP
  • Teams will build partnership with local public health department and businesses

COVID Statewide Numbers

The California Department of Public Health Tuesday announced the most recent statistics on COVID-19. California’s positivity rate – a key indicator of community spread – is trending modestly upward in the 14-day average. Hospitalization rates are also trending upwards in the 14-day average. California has 222,917 confirmed cases to date. Numbers may not represent true day-over-day change as reporting of test results can be delayed. There have been 4,167,139 tests conducted in California. As testing capacity continues to increase across the state, an increase in the number of positive cases has been expected – increasing the importance of positivity rates to find signs of community spread. There have been 5,980 COVID-19 deaths since the start of the pandemic

It’s really messed up he waited till the last minute to announce these closures. I’m sure restaurants just spent a small fortune stocking up on food for the holiday weekend.

I have no doubt this is exactly what Newscum and his cronies planned for.

Not enough small businesses closed and the economy was showing signs of a quicker than expected recovery.

Notice how prior to the riots it was all about the death toll and mortality rate and now there’s not a word about the mortality rate it’s all about number of people infected whether they are symptomatic or not?

Time to move the goal posts, keep the fear levels high and destroy more small businesses…

To Everyone attacking Jaime

Keep drinking the fake manufactured liberal lies Kool-Aid

Every one of you is pathetic for believing this sham, just like the fake impeachment, just like the fake Russian collusion

I’m not saying the “Chinese” COVID- whatever Politically correct name you want to call it isn’t real- the liberal lies Democrat “alledged leaders” are milking the hell out of this- Democrat’s obviously and clearly hate YOUR President – and just like little children will do anything to make him look bad

If you got something to say to me
“Bite Me” in advance

Have a Safe Day

So what about Europe and Asia’s responses to the pandemic? Are they “libtards” too? Get a grip dude. 100,000 Americans, your fellow countrymen, have died because of this. Young and old. And your biggest sacrifice in all of this is to wear a mask? You’re a pathetic American. You act like your as brave as the founding fathers, fighting for freedom, when really you sound like a selfish dweeb. The only sheep left in this country as people still believing in Trump. Our country deserves a way better American leader, deal with it.

As Nazi Pelosi would say,

Thank you Ruth!! I thought I was the only crazy one telling these people that they suck. I know wearing a mask sucks, but studies show it won’t kill you. The whole oxygen deprived nonsense was proven wrong.
