California Governor Gavin Newsom ordered all bars in 7 counties across the state (including Los Angeles) to be closed immediately, citing the rapid spread of coronavirus in the past few weeks.
Newsom’s decision to delay the restart of the work began less than a month ago, and two days ago, the Republican governors of Texas and Florida ordered a similar shutdown to prevent a surge in COVID-19 cases.
The governor’s state director of state public health, Dr. Sonia Angell, announced the decision on Sunday afternoon, just two weeks after allowing the bar to reopen in California on June 12.
Today, coronaviruses have infected more than 2.5 million people in the United States and killed 1
These terrible numbers prompted Alex Azar of the Department of Health and Human Services to warn, “The window we are taking action on and controlling is closing. ”
He accused “inappropriate personal behavior” of spreading the virus and causing a sharp increase.
California Governor Gavin Newsom ordered all bars in seven states (including Los Angeles) near the state to be closed immediately, citing the rapid spread of coronavirus in recent days
Texas Governor Greg Abbott issued a new executive order on Friday to reduce the time it takes to reopen the state after a surge of coronavirus cases.
From noon, the bar and brewery were ordered to close, but no toll service was provided.
Starting on Monday, restaurants that originally operated at 75% of their dining capacity must also be scaled down to 50% by Abbot’s order.
In Florida, Fearing that the state might become the next source of the virus, the state ordered to stop drinking on Friday-unless it was provided in an overloaded manner.
The seven counties in California that were immediately affected by the lawyer’s ban are Los Angeles, Fresno, Cohen, San Joaquin, Tulare, King and Empire Empire.
With the exception of Los Angeles, all the counties listed are located in the Central Valley, and the rate of coronavirus infections has risen sharply in the past two weeks.
Eight other counties have been suggested to implement similar shutdown measures, but there are no orders to do so. Among these counties are Santa Clara, Riverside and Sacramento.
Newsom said in a statement: “Californiaans must remain vigilant against this virus.”‘COVID-19 is still circulating in California and certain parts of the state, and it is becoming stronger and stronger. Therefore, it is essential that we must take this step to limit the spread of the virus in the fastest growing counties. ”
State officials said the counties immediately affected by the Sunday order were determined by daily reports about the spread of COVID-19.
Counties that have been on the state’s watch list for 3 to 14 days are required to close bars. Those who have been on the watch list for more than 14 days are ordered to do so.
In his statement, Dr. Angel said: “We are actively monitoring COVID-19 throughout the state and working closely with counties that have an increased incidence and involve transmission methods.”
“The ban on closing these counties is one of a series of targeted actions implemented by counties across our state to slow the spread of the virus and reduce risk.”
Governor Newsom’s order is the first major failure of efforts to reopen the California economy.
Newsom allowed the bar to reopen in the state on June 12, but granted county health officials the power to close them as long as they deemed fit.
The vast majority of California’s 58 counties subsequently allowed bars to reopen, including the city of Los Angeles, which began implementing the plan on June 19.
California has issued guidelines that require bars to maintain social distance between customers, cancel bar seats, and turn down the volume of music to reduce the need for shouting-which reportedly drains water droplets at greater distances.
During the Coronavirus pandemic in Santa Monica, California, an employee of a large dean checked the temperature of customers before allowing them to enter bars and restaurants
Earlier this month, Newsom also ordered all Californians to wear masks in public and in “high-risk environments.”
However, in the weeks since then, photos appeared in bars and nightclubs showing large groups of people gathered together without masks, standing in a row, and taking no social counseling measures.
Several bars in Sacramento closed their will even after they learned that COVID-19 had been scattered in their residence.
At present, there are more than 211,000 coronavirus cases in the state, and the death toll is close to 6,000. Hospitalization and infection rates also continued to rise, and officials cited many reasons, including reopening and private parties.
Last Friday, Newsom said he recommended that Empire County continue to enforce stricter self-provided housing orders because the county continues to report the highest rate of COVID-19 infections per capita anywhere in the state and the highest number of tests.
The Imperial County Advisory Committee did not immediately order a decision to close the business. A meeting was held with the state delegation on Saturday to discuss procedures, but no decision was made publicly until Newsom ordered Sunday.
In San Bernardino County, officials warned that their hospitals are rapidly approaching “emergency service capacity” and have planned to open alternative care places while the infection rate remains the same.
Similarly, in Los Angeles County, the large number of confirmed cases and hospitalizations has caused Los Angeles to leave home at a “critical moment” against the pandemic. If the current trend continues, the current home orders will be threatened.
Los Angeles County Public Health officials reported 2169 new cases of coronavirus on Saturday.
County Health Director Barbara Ferrer said in a statement on Saturday: “If we fail to comply with these regulations, including wearing a face mask and keeping distance from others, it will endanger us in the process of recovery Ability.” “Our collective responsibility is to act immediately as individuals and businesses to reverse the trends we are experiencing.”

Bars across the state have been ordered to stop serving alcoholic beverages on Friday. According to the ban, companies that derive more than half of their sales from alcohol can still sell drinks on demand.
Since allowing businesses to reopen in recent weeks, another COVID-19 hot spot in the south has been Texas.
The state set a coronavirus-related hospital record on Saturday for the 16th consecutive day, treating 5,523 patients.

He told the news station: “The longer we serve these emergency calls, it will kill us.” ‘Our system is getting more and more strained. ’
Since early June, Texas has seen a surge in coronavirus cases, and Houston has become the center of the state.
Harris County, including the city, raised its COVID-19 threat index to the highest level last week and issued an emergency alert, calling the epidemic “serious and uncontrolled.”
The intensive care unit at the Texas Medical Center in Houston was nearly full on the weekend, and health officials reported record-breaking hospitalizations throughout the state.
Hospital executives said last week that they were prepared to cope with the influx of patients by curtailing unnecessary procedures to free up beds.
However, Marc Boon, dean of the Houston Methodist Hospital, urged the public to take action to prevent the system from being overwhelmed.
Baum said: “Now is the time when everyone needs to change their behavior drastically to control this virus so that we can deal with these viruses there in the next few weeks.”

Abbot announced: “I ask all Texans to do their best, wear masks, wash their hands regularly, and keep distance from others to slow down the spread of Covid-19.”‘The more we follow these guidelines, The safer our state is, the more we can open our business to Texas. ’

The organization said in a letter: “We support our members having the constitutional right to protest by keeping your business open.”
The letter called Abbott’s decision “irresponsible and shameful” and added that members expressed anger at being forced to close the business while allowing salons and restaurants to remain open.

The Ingham County Health Department has linked all cases to Harper’s Restaurant and Brew Pub in Lansing, near the Michigan State University campus.
The doctor found that 80 of those infected had visited the bar, while others had contact with customers who had been exposed to 23 asymptomatic tests.
Customers who visited the bar at any time between June 12 and June 22 were told to conduct 14 days of self-isolation.

The epidemic caused widespread concern in the United States in March, and has infected more than 2.5 million strains of virus in the country and killed more than 125,000 people. Although severe measures have been taken in some states, the virus has not disappeared. .

Hazard refused to blame the reopening of the states for reopening the case, saying that “improper personal behavior” was the culprit for spreading the virus.
He said: “It is better to say that our behavior in this act is not so much the law as to reopen. ”He urged the public to put on masks and social alienation.
“If we act irresponsibly, if we don’t have social distance, if we don’t use facial masks in an environment where we can’t, and if we don’t take proper personal hygiene, then we will see disease, “He warned cautiously.
His message is far from Donald Trump’s message to the public, because he refused to wear a mask and held a rally during the campaign.
Last Friday, Pence boasted that the United States had “flattened the curve” and resisted the serious threat posed by the virus today, as 36 states reported an increase in COVID-19 cases.

Pence admitted that some changes have occurred in the past two weeks, but he did not blame the resurgence of the case on the reopening of the state, but pointed out that people did not wear masks and social alienation.
