Stopping short of a state order, Gov. Gavin Newsom on Sunday called for the home isolation of all seniors in the state of California and the immediate shutdown of bars, nightclubs, brew pubs and wineries to help stop the spread of coronavirus, now considered a global pandemic. 

In addition, Newsom said all restaurants should reduce capacity by half and provide “deep social distancing.”

In terms of hospital visits, Newsom said there should be no more of these unless it was “end of life.” Finally, he said that on Monday, he may announce possibly halting evictions in California. 

He said he realized that these are harsh measures and that isolation is hard, especially when 85 percent of California’s school children won’t be in school on Monday. He acknowledged that many workers need a paycheck and times will be tough.
