Curfew Issued Statewide for Purple Tier 1 Counties. Starting Saturday Affecting Over 90% of Californians!

Gov. Gavin Newsom on Thursday announced a curfew limiting the nighttime movements of more than 90% of Californians.

The order goes into effect 10 p.m. Saturday and will last until at least 5 a.m. Dec. 21. It applies to counties in the purple tier — or 41 of the state’s 58 counties. That includes all Bay Area counties except San Francisco, San Mateo and Marin.

Roughly 94% of Californians — 37 million people — live in counties that are in the purple tier, which has forced many businesses in those communities to suspend or severely restrict the number of customers allowed indoors.

The order, intended to deal with increases in coronavirus cases, requires most non-essential work, movement and gatherings to stop between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m.

FACT: There is just this one remaining county in the entire United States that hasn’t reported a single Coronavirus Case as of mid November!

Here are the current businesses allowed to remain open:

Many of these businesses will have to close at 9:30 p.m. or early enough to allow people to return to their homes by 10 p.m.

Newsom tweeted that the curfew would go into effect on Saturday beginning at 10 p.m. and last for the next month. Gatherings and non-essential work will be prohibited from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. in purple-tier counties.

Along with the limited stay-at-home order, California has also issued a travel advisory [2]asking people to avoid non-essential out-of-state travel and to quarantine for 14 days after arriving from another state or country. Masks are currently required to be worn by individuals whenever they are outside their homes, with limited exceptions.
