In a press conference on July 1st, Governor Gavin Newsom annouced coronavirus restrictions ahead of the 4th of July holiday weekend. Due to an increase in Coronivirus cases and deaths, the California Governor is recalling some of the reopen plans in an effort to dim down the increase. Some businesses are ordered to cease all indoor operations, like tasting rooms, wineries, movie theaters, museums, and restaurants. These businesses were among those that were just reopened within the last few weeks. Newsom also urges the state to continue wearing face masks, avoid crowds, and deter from gathering with people not currently in the household. Click HERE for more on this developing story.
