California Governor Gavin Newsom announced yesterday directives to address the need to slow the spread of COVID-19, and Sacramento County urges compliance with those directives. Sacramento County also urges compliance with the Centers for Disease Control’s (CDC) new guidance, released yesterday, recommending events and gatherings across the United States consist of no more than 50 people.
The Governor’s announcement had several directives to slow the spread of COVID-19, which included:
- Closing all bars, night clubs, wineries and brew pubs, as they are considered non-essential;
- Restaurants cut their seating capacity in half but not more than 50 to comply with social distancing requirements, and those who are 65 or older or with chronic health conditions should not dine in restaurants;
- Those who are 65 or older or with chronic underlying health conditions should stay home.
The CDC announced its recommendation
that for the next eight weeks, organizers cancel or postpone in-person events that consist of 50 people or more throughout the United States.
