Gavin Newsom Goes Back to Giving Small Businesses the Middle Finger by Shutting Down Most of the State
On July 14, 2020., California Governor Gavin Newsom rolled back some of the state’s reopening after an increase in the number of Wuhan virus cases and hospitalizations.
Some of the businesses being closed include places of worship, hair salons, fitness centers, and malls.
According to a report from KCRA 3, “Twenty-nine counties the state is monitoring are now required to close indoor operations”
Some of the following businesses are being closed down:
- Fitness centers
- Places of worship
- Offices for noncritical sectors
- Personal care services
- Hair salons and barbershops
The aforementioned 29 counties make up roughly 80% of California’s population. Additionally, Newsom announced that all bars must close. Bars must close all operations, Newsom said.
“In many parts of our state, we’re still seeing an increase in the positivity rate, the community transmission, we’re seeing an increase in the spread of the virus. So that’s why it’s incumbent upon all of us to recognize, soberly, that COVID-19 is not going away anytime soon,” Newsom declared.
Newsom reported that in the last week there was an average of 8,211 new cases. Wuhan virus hospitalizations increased 28% during the last two weeks.
Ironically, there were major rallies taking place in Californian cities such as Los Angeles in early June and elected officials did not even voice any concerns about the potential for the virus to spread in light of these events.

None of this should come as a shock given how anti-freedom California has become.
It is already one of the most anti-gun states in the country, and now, it’s only cementing its well-established reputation of being a state hostile towards small and medium-sized businesses.
