California Governor Gavin Newson announced today a new stay “stay home” order that will close brewery and winery tasting rooms, bars and pubs and all indoor and outdoor dining at restaurants.
Restaurants will be able to provide to-go orders and breweries will be able to sell beer curbside to consumers as well as direct shipping and delivery to customers.
The stay home orders will be implemented by region across the state, with the state’s 40 million population being broken down into five regions. Any region that surpasses 85% capacity of hospital intensive care units will be placed into the stay home order for a minimum of three weeks. Although all five regions are currently below the 85% capacity threshold, it is expected that all five regions will surpass the threshold with days.
