California: COVID-19

Closure of bars and nightclubs in LA

California governor Gavin Newsom has ordered the closure of bars and nightclubs in seven of the state’s counties, including Los Angeles. Newsom’s order came as Covid-19 cases in California rise. “Covid-19 is still circulating in California, and in some parts of the state, growing stronger,” Newsom said. “That’s why it is critical we take this step to limit the spread of the virus in the counties that are seeing the biggest increases.” Los Angeles county reported 2,169 news coronavirus cases on Saturday alone.
