30,000 CALIFORNIA RESTAURANTS COULD CLOSE— The California Restaurant Association sent a letter to Gov. Gavin Newsom warning that due to public health measures that halted dine-in service, 20 to 30 percent of California restaurants could permanently close. The association proposed various ways the state could assist to help protect restaurants during mandated COVID-19 stay-at-home orders.
Here is the most up-to-date information on what’s open and what is not (as of Thursday, March 19, 2020). It is advised to call ahead to see if an item is available or an establishment is open because things are changing so fast.
