California Gov. Gavin Newsom said he is “days, not weeks” away from lifting some restrictions of the state’s stay-at-home order.
“I just want folks to know that we are getting very close to making really meaningful augmentations to that stay-at-home order,” the governor said today.
Some areas that will be impacted in this first wave of reopening include retail and hospitality, including restaurants. All will have serious modifications, Newsom said, adding that experts are looking at each industry and developing guidelines to begin to return to normal.
Newsom also made clear he understands the difference in needs between rural and urban areas. “We hear you,” he said.
