California restricts activities in 19 counties for at least three weeks

California has experienced a resurgence of the coronavirus, and so the state that houses three NFL teams is taking more aggressive measures to slow the spread.

Governor Gavin Newsom has ordered a shutdown in 19 counties of indoor operations at theaters, restaurants, wineries, museums, etc. for at least three weeks. Bars must close all operations, indoor and outdoor.

California restricted all business early in the pandemic. Things are now moving in that direction, with the start of NFL training camps only four weeks away.

Indoor activities have been targeted based on the pervasive belief that the virus spreads far more quickly in confined spaces than outdoor. Regardless, it’s currently spreading aggressively in many areas of the country. If it’s not brought under control, it inevitably will affect the NFL.

  1. Wait … wasn’t California lecturing everyone else on how to deal with this?

    Keep the hate up we could use that shade out here in CA
    88 degrees and sunshine for the 6th week straight. Only 6more months to go 😎

    No.

    Stop being part of the problem. Start being part of the solution. See you in November.

  5. You cannot stop a virus unless you lock yourself in your home and never go out until a vaccine is available. Every other measure you take is ultimately futile.

  6. Anyone walking around without a mask on is the reason why our economy will never reopen.

    The virus is spreading through you… Not the responsible guy who cares about other people wearing the mask.

    How containing a virus became political is beyond me but it’s got to stop.

    WEAR A MASK!

    Yes sir! Last weeks was kinda rough though with temps up to 108 for a few days here just a little north of you. This week has been lovely.

  8. I’m pretty ticked off Newsom didn’t throw San Diego and County on this list. While we’re in a better shape than much of California, now we’re sandwiched by counties that are closed during a major holiday, which means people will flock here and increase infections, then leave.

    How am I “part of the problem”? Are you chomping at the bit to make political points? Gov. Newsome actually did the right thing by shutting things down awhile back, but his own people didn’t listen to him. Instead they hit the beaches, joined the protests, and went everywhere without a mask. Yet they lectured everyone else about wearing masks and social distancing. I wear a mask everytime I go out. I hope you do the same.

    True, but if people would be more cautious we wouldn’t be seeing record setting numbers of cases still popping up everyday. I just dont understand why people get upset when certain places of business require people to wear masks. It’s their policy. No need to yell out comments like “I’m not a sheep!” It’s like when certain restaurants require proper attire to dine there, you just gotta roll with it. I admit I dont wear masks at work and I rarely wear one if I’m walking out in public, although I’m always careful to keep my distance for my own health and for the respect of the people around me. But if I go inside a business I do wear one most of the time. Especially if there a sign that says they require masks.

  11. Haha I got 2 thumbs down because I said last week was hot and this week is lovely. Not that my day is gonna be affected by the amount of thumbs down that I get, but I just found that funny.

  12. LAPD just posted this photo of people protesting tonight. How is this allowed, with no social distancing, when hours ago Governor Newsom said we shouldn’t even see our family for a July 4th gathering this weekend, unless we live with them.

    The County of San Diego is shutting itself down on the 6th. Now just have to figure out how to keep the Zonies and the rest of SoCal from showing up this weekend.
