    Growing Cases of COVID-19 Lead California and Pennsylvania Counties to Again Close Bars

    Plus, the UN says the pandemic has pushed millions into hunger, and more news to start your day

    The reclosures come after COVID-19 cases continue to spike

    Last week, officials in Texas, Florida, and Idaho were the first to roll back business allowances in the face of rising cases of COVID-19. Bars were no longer allowed to operate for walk-in service, and in Texas, restaurants had to reduce indoor dining capacity from 75 percent to 50 percent. Now, California and Pennsylvania are following suit.

    California Gov. Gavin Newsom ordered nightlife and bars to close in seven counties, and recommended that eight other counties do so, as well. “Californians must remain vigilant against this virus,” he said in a statement. “COVID-19 is still circulating in California, and in some parts of the state, growing stronger. That’s why it is critical we take this step to limit the spread of the virus in the counties that are seeing the biggest increases.”

    Also, health officials in Pittsburgh and surrounding Allegheny County in Pennsylvania ordered all bars closed for on-site consumption, restricting operations once again to take-out drinks and cocktails. As Eater’s Nick Mancall-Bitel wrote, basically everything to love about bars, especially dive bars, is what makes them such hotbeds for the spread of disease: “Dives are cherished for their dark interiors, raucous atmospheres, and egalitarian walk-in only service, all aspects that make it hard for dives to accommodate social distancing.” In many of these states and counties, activities like outdoor dining, personal care services, and moderately-sized gatherings are still permissible.
