Newsom Orders Bars Closed In Seven California Counties, Including Los AngelesJune 29, 2020
Late last week, both Florida and Texas scaled back the reopening of the on-premise, due to rapidly rising cases of Covid-19. In Florida, all establishments that bring in more than 50% of their gross revenue from alcohol sales must immediately suspend on-premise sales. Bars may continue to sell drinks to go. Texas announced on Friday morning that bars would close at noon and restaurants would be limited to 50% capacity.
In California, meanwhile, governor Gavin Newsom yesterday ordered bars to be closed in seven counties including Los Angeles, Fresno, Kern, San Joaquin, Tulare, Kings, and Imperial. State officials also asked eight other counties to issue local orders closing bars, with those counties including Contra Costa, Santa Clara, Sacramento, Riverside, San Bernardino, Ventura, Santa Barbara, and Stanislaus.—David Fleming & Shane EnglishSubscribe to Shanken News Daily’s Email Newsletter, delivered to your inbox each morning.
