This applies to all counties on the "county monitoring list" for at least three consecutive days.

Newson's new order also affects bars and brew pubs-both indoor and outdoor-all of which must close across the 19 counties.

The new guidance will remain in place for at least three weeks.

For most people, the coronavirus causes mild or moderate symptoms, such as fever and cough that clear up in two to three weeks. For some, especially older adults and people with existing health problems, it can cause more severe illness, including pneumonia and death.

However, Klausner said when restrictions are imposed they "can tell people (that) health officials are very serious and therefore people are more likely to adopt personal behaviour change".

The county's Public Health Department has not yet issued an order confirming and clarifying the action.

"I know these closures are frustrating and it is heartbreaking to think we are losing ground".

Before Newsom announced the new restrictions today, he also extended some programs to ease the harsh economic toll of the virus, though largely keeping with a strategy to leave it up to local officials to decide what to ultimately implement.
