Gov.Newsom announced all indoor operations for the following industries must be closed statewide: -Restaurants -Wineries -Movie theaters, family entertainment -Zoos, museums -Cardrooms -Bars must close ALL operations.

The most recent statistics by the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) on July 12 reveal that the state's COVID-19 hospitalization rate and positivity rate - which is a measure of community spread - are both "trending upward in the 14-day-average".

30 counties in the state will also be required to close fitness centers, places of worship, offices for noncritical sectors, personal care services, hair salons, barbershops and malls.

California is one of many U.S. states, including Texas, Florida, South Carolina, that have experienced surging cases in recent weeks.

As of Monday, the state had reported more than 320,000 COVID-19 cases and over 7,000 deaths, with 23 people dying from the virus since Sunday.

The governor has not confirmed his topic, but last week said he would soon give an update on testing in the state.

Newsom's announcement comes just hours after the state's two largest school districts, Los Angeles and San Diego, will begin the new school year next month but students will not return to campuses.
