In response to the growing number of cases, Governor Gavin Newsom has announced that certain sectors in these counties must close indoor operations for at least three weeks.

According to Orange County Register, the sectors that must close indoor operations for three weeks include restaurants, wineries and cardrooms. The governor mentioned in his news conference that movie theaters are also included on this list. Not included in this list of sectors are retail locations.

This order immediately followed the announcement made by Orange County Health Officials that all bars that do not provide sit-down dining must close. With restaurants ordered to close indoor operations, at this time it sounds like the only dining that is allowed to take place for the next three weeks are outdoor, sit-down environments.
