SACRAMENTO, California (KSEE/KGPE) — California Gov. Gavin Newsom announced Monday the closure of indoor operations at fitness centers, places of worship, and barbershops — among other businesses — in several Valley counties that were on the state’s COVID-19 monitoring list.
Other sectors facing indoor closures include offices for non-essential workers, personal care services, and malls.
This affects Fresno, Kings, Madera, Merced, and Tulare counties.
On July 1, Newsom ordered many counties to close bars and indoor operations at restaurants, wineries, zoos and family entertainment centers like bowling alleys and miniature golf.
Now, those counties not included in the previous closure will have to shut down those operations statewide.
California confirmed 8,358 new coronavirus cases on Sunday.
Hospitalizations have increased 28% over the past two weeks.
