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.
