California Gov. Newsom orders bars closed in counties including Los Angeles, citing coronavirus

The closures affect several counties, including the most populous in the U.S.

California Gov. Gavin Newsom on Sunday ordered bars to close in counties including Los Angeles, while recommending closures in some other counties, citing the spread of the coronavirus.
The order from Newsom, a Democrat, affected the counties of Fresno, Imperial, Kern, Kings, San Joaquin, Tulare, and Los Angeles -- the most populous in the United States. State officials have asked at least eight other counties to issue local health orders closing bars.
Officials in Texas and Florida have made similar moves, essentially pausing parts of their states' economic comebacks as cases spike.
