Governor orders selected businesses to move activities outdoors or close

As part of a statewide action to slow the spread of coronavirus, California Governor Gavin Newsom order selected businesses to move their activities outdoors. Those businesses that cannot move activities outside must close.

The governor’s announcement today impacts 19 counties, including Riverside County, that were recently placed on a watch list by state officials. Newsom said the order to move activities outdoors was necessary to reduce the spread of coronavirus, which has seen an upswing in cases statewide and in Riverside County.

The restrictions include restaurants, wineries and tasting rooms, movie theaters, family entertainment centers, zoos and museums, and cardrooms. 

The new restrictions come as residents prepare to celebrate the Fourth of July holiday and follow an order issued Monday by Riverside County Public Health Officer Dr. Cameron Kaiser to close bars to slow the spread of the virus.

Riverside County health officials remind all residents there is still a statewide stay at home order in effect and social gatherings are known places where the disease is spread. “We all have a responsibility in slowing this disease,” said Riverside County Board of Supervisors Chair V. Manuel Perez. “We will follow the governor’s directive and expect all residents, visitors, and business owners to do so as well. Let’s all do our part to stay safe by wearing face coverings, keeping our distance from others, and not attending social gatherings.”
