California closes businesses as coronavirus cases continue to rise
On Monday, California’s Governor Gavin Newsom ordered restrictions on bars, dine-in restaurants, gyms, and even ordinary offices across the state to shut down as coronavirus cases continue to climb which dims the economic growth of the United States as a whole.
The affected businesses include all operations at bars and indoor activities at restaurants, wineries and tasting rooms, movie theaters, family entertainment centers, zoos, museums, and cardrooms.
On Sunday, California confirmed 8,358 new coronavirus cases while hospitalizations have increased by 28% over the past two weeks.
“The data suggests not everybody is practicing common sense,” Gavin Newsom said.
California’s two largest school districts, Los Angeles and San Diego issued a joint statement that classes would resume in August via online education.
According to the statement, “One fact is clear: those countries that have managed to safely reopen schools have done so with declining infection rates and on-demand testing available. California has neither.”
