The Governor held a press conference today stating that he has added 6 MORE counties to the watch list. In total, there are now 23 counties on the watch list. These 23 counties have had a surge of Covid-19 cases so the Governor is now monitoring them. These new counties are now ordered to halt indoor operations of Bars, Wineries, Tasting Rooms, Movie Theaters, Family Entertainment Centers, Zoos, Museums, and Cardrooms. The 6 counties added to the watch list are Colusa, Madera, Marin, Merced, Monterey, and San Diego.
The Governor’s Order now applies to these counties: Los Angeles, Sacramento, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, Santa Barbara, Contra Costa, Fresno, Glenn, Kern, Kings, Merced, San Joaquin, Solano, Stanislaus, Tulare, Imperial, Santa Clara, Ventura, Colusa, Madera, Marin, Merced, Monterey, and San Diego.
