Mass Gatherings

Mass Gatherings

To protect public health and slow the rate of transmission of COVID-19, the California Department of Public Health has determined that all non-essential gatherings should be postponed or canceled across the state until further guidance is issued by the California Department of Public Health.  This includes gatherings such as concerts, conferences, sporting events, gyms and theaters.  Bars, night clubs, wineries, breweries and wine tasting rooms should close. Restaurants should be closed for in-restaurant seated dining and should be open only to drive-through or other pick-up/delivery options.  Certain activities are essential to the functioning of our state and must continue.  Hence, this does not apply to essential public transportation, airport travel, shopping at a store, mall, or farmers’ market, or charitable food pantries and distributions.
