California Bars, Nightclubs and Some Major Retail To Close During Outbreak
By on March 16, 2020
Governor Gavin Newsom recommends closure of all bars, nightclubs, wineries and the like while we curb the spread of coronavirus. This aligns with the Center for Disease Control (CDC) call to cancel all gatherings of 50 people or more across the US.
NEW: Those that are 65 and older or vulnerable to #COVIDー19 must practice home isolation.
Bars, night clubs, wineries, and breweries should close in CA.
Restaurants — focus on takeout for those isolating. Maximize social distancing.

Restaurants are exempt from closing but are required to limit the number of eat-in diners to half their normal capacity. Food establishments are focusing on pick-up and delivery orders to reduce the amount of interaction between employees and customers. Before you head out the door, check with your favorite spot to find out if they offer delivery or pick-up. It’s the better way to go right now.

If you were thinking that now would be a good time to take advantage of smaller crowds at popular retail stores…Apple, Nike, Urban Outfitters and others are closing for two weeks. Wal-Mart stores are adjusting their hours to give employees more time to restock shelves. Check with your local stores to make sure they’re open at the times you want to go.
