Corona California Restaurants
Restaurants in California are preparing to reopen their doors to customers after the state allowed counties to loosen restrictions during the coronavirus pandemic. California Governor Gavin Newsom announced Tuesday that restaurants can reopen to serve food - customers and malls can do business as long as they comply with state-imposed restrictions and guidelines.
Newsom said all bars in the district will have to shut down and many state beaches and parking lots will remain closed for the weekend. Newport Beach, which has one of the highest rates of coronavirus in California, will close all beaches on Friday and Saturday, while Seal Beach and Huntington Beach will remain closed only on Saturday. All restaurants in 19 counties, including Los Angeles County, must stop operating indoor dining beginning Friday, a measure aimed at slowing the aggressive resurgence of COVID in those 19 states.
In Northern California, where the number of hospital admissions is still rising, albeit more slowly, some beaches have reopened, though visitors are keeping their distance. Some jurisdictions have voluntarily slowed their reopening plans, including Santa Barbara County, San Bernardino County and San Diego County.
So far, only Butte and El Dorado counties have claimed to meet the criteria that would allow them to move to the second stage of reopening plans, but the affected counties are in Southern California, where hospital rates have risen in recent years, particularly in southern counties, including Imperial, San Bernardino, and Los Angeles, which now account for nearly half of all cases nationwide. California recorded an average of 16.5 new cases in the first three months of 2016, while Sutter County had an average of 21.8 cases, and the positive test rate - the takers in those counties were more than twice the state's 5.2.
That makes sense for San Diego, but perhaps not for Eureka or Bakersfield, but cities and counties are responsible for determining the rules for each category. While this makes sense in San Francisco and Los Angeles, they might as well leave it to the city and county to determine the rule for that category, because what doesn't make sense for SanDiego might not make sense for Eureska and Bakerfield.
Of all the restaurants in California, Barra Pan's menu is currently limited to a single large courtyard. As it stands, the restaurant can be served outdoors, but the brewery is not on-site kitchen and outdoor seating. Guerrilla tacos spend about $27,000 to create the outdoor space and sell reservations for a small profit, Valles said, so they act like a small porch at the door. If it has to, he said he doesn't think it will be worth serving 11 seats.
Restaurants across the state are also investing significant resources in setting up outdoor dining, adding to frustration over the shutdown.
Some California cities, including Los Angeles, have recently adopted programs aimed at improving outdoor dining by approving and opening restaurants. With the coronavirus pandemic still raging, the entrepreneurial opportunities that AB 626 will bring could mean that local chefs can provide communities with the food we would love to eat. Riverside is the only county in the state to have fully implemented it, and by January 2020 dozens of restaurants will go online, but it proves that the path to legal home cooking is not only possible, but also necessary. If it were extended to Alameda County and San Bernardino County, and if it were extended to all of California and other parts of the Bay Area and San Francisco Bay Area, these results could be hugely beneficial.
The restaurant industry, which employed about 1.8 million Californians last year and had an economic impact of $97 billion in 2018, has been particularly hard hit by the coronavirus pandemic.
The restaurant chain, known for its lunch, brunch and buffet, is open only for takeout and deliveries at four locations in Los Angeles County, including Sherman Oaks, Woodland Hills and Northridge. Dara Maleki, the founder of Pizza Press, has stopped serving food at all four of the locations she runs. Sales at the chain's restaurants in the San Fernando Valley, San Bernardino County and Orange County have fallen by 60% since the start of the new coronavirus crisis, according to the California Department of Health.
CODID19 does not take the 4th of July off, but the new order means they will remain closed next weekend. We have just signed a contract to get certified by Riverside County Health Department, and we need staff. The restaurant's dining room is still open on weekends from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., according to the restaurant's website.
Porter, along with other bar and restaurant owners, will clarify what is and is not allowed. The restaurant chain must also comply with the rules at state, county and city level.
McMurray's Eastvale home is a restaurant, a real family affair, and so is Cuca Mexican Food, which has three locations in Los Angeles, San Diego and San Bernardino County.
