As Virus Cases Rise, More Of California Shuts Down

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) – More areas of California must impose restrictions on businesses to try to curb a resurgence of the coronavirus that has hospitalizations rising as they did in June when the state imposed a statewide mask requirement. State officials said Tuesday that three of California’s largest counties are among 11 statewide that regressed on reopening businesses and other activities. Meanwhile, San Francisco imposed new restrictions including a ban on indoor dining. San Diego, Sacramento and Contra Costa counties all moved backwards, San Diego and Sacramento to the most stringent restrictions and Contra Costa to one tier lower on the state’s four-tier, color-coded system.
