On Tuesday, May 12, Governor Gavin Newsom released guidelines that will take California further into Phase 2 of the state’s reopening plan — including guidance for restaurants to allow dine-in eating.
“The statewide order affords the opportunity for local government to come into conformance with those guidelines, but one can choose to be a little bit more prescriptive and restrictive. Not everyone is compelled into this phase,” Newsom said during his press briefing. “It’s going to be very trying, even with these modifications, for restaurants to survive. I’m not naive about any of this, and I’m deeply concerned."
