Lake County, CA (July 13, 2020) – COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations continue to rise in our region and throughout California.

During his noon Press Conference today, Governor Newsom announced statewide re-closure, effective immediately, of indoor operations in the following business sectors:

• Restaurants
• Wineries and Tasting Rooms
• Movie Theaters
• Family Entertainment Centers
• Zoos and Museums
• Cardrooms

California Businesses in the above-named industries are allowed to continue to operate to the extent they are able to provide services outdoors and/or offer to-go orders, curbside pickup and delivery.

Bars, Brewpubs, Breweries, and Pubs Remain Open if They Are Offering Sit-Down, Outdoor Dine-In Meals; Takeout, Curbside Pickup, Shipping and Delivery Also Remain Permitted

In other words, indoor sit-down meals and/or beverage service and on-site seating for alcoholic beverage service, only, even if outdoors, are prohibited.

Breweries with restaurant operations, for example, are able to continue offering outdoor dining, takeout, and curbside pickup. Shipping and delivery-based operations may continue, as well.

The Order was also not intended to prohibit breweries from brewing beer, which is considered an essential food manufacturing activity.
