With the rise in cases of coronavirus in California, the state is taking a step back in its gradual reopening by closing bars and nightlife in seven counties, including Los Angeles County. Governor Gavin Newsome made the announcement Sunday after 2,169 positive tests were reported on Saturday, with 23 deaths. The State has approached 100,000 cases since the start of the pandemic.

In his speech, Newsome shared that everyone “must remain vigilant” because the virus continues to be a threat. In addition to ordering seven counties to close the store, he advised eight other counties to consider the same. He called it a “critical step” to take because COVID-19 has become stronger in some parts of the state. The step backward in the gradual reopening of Cailfornia will have an impact on Fresno, Imperial, Kern, Kings, San Joaquin, Tulara and the aforementioned Los Angeles County. Restaurants will be allowed to serve alcohol if they have a bar, but brasseries and pubs will fall into the bar category for closure.

The decision to back down was not easy for Newsome, which had recently loosened the reins on June 12 to allow the bars to reopen. Public health officials played a major role in convincing Newsome to make the decision, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. Dr. Sonia Angell shared in a statement that it was an approach to “slow the spread of the virus and reduce the risks”. Officials noted that drinking alcohol can lead to bad decisions and that rules involving social distancing and masks may not achieve its goal with impaired decisions.

California is not the only state to retract from previous directives that have been lifted. Florida did the same this weekend, as Governor Ron DeSantis announced that bars in Sunshine State should stop drinking locally after a record number. Sunday marked the third consecutive day that the state discovered 8,500 or more positive cases, bringing the total to 140,075 in total, with 3,419 deaths. In addition to seeing Florida and California see peaks in COVID-19, Arizona and Texas have also been hit hard recently by the virus.
