Aite...so I'm just going to hit you with he bottom line : BARS AND NIGHTSPOTS [in certain counties] ARE BEING ORDERED TO CLOSE due to COVID-19 cases. 

In case the parenthesis in that sentence made you feel like WE are excluded from that, they really shouldn't - because we are definitely NOT. 

As Los Angeles Times reports, Gov. Newsom ordered today to have 7 counties close their bars and clubs, and advised 8 other counties, including Sacramento, to do the same. 

The 7 under state order to close immediately include: Los Angeles, Fresno, Kern, San Joaquin, Tulare, Kings and Imperial.

And the 8 others that have been asked by state officials to issue local health orders closing bars are: Contra Costa, Santa Clara, Sacramento, Riverside, San Bernardino, Ventura, Santa Barbara and Stanislaus.

"The list of counties affected by Sunday’s order was based on daily reports on the spread of the virus, state officials said. Counties that have been on the state’s watch list for three to 14 days are being asked to close bars. Those counties being ordered to close the local businesses have been on the state’s watch list for more than 14 days." In plain translation, that means WE haven't been doing well, 916. Cases in Sacramento have been increasing in the past week and the measure is to hopefully combat that in our area and the other 14 affected.

Of course the ultimate goal is to stop the spread of COVID-19 and beat the pandemic, but as we can see we have a long way to go. 

Take one step forward and two steps back - just not in the direction of any bar or nightclub for a while. 

Be Safe Sacramento.
