https://www.latimes.com/california/l...-for-residents



Orange County has executed new restrictions for its more than 3 million residents, county officials announced Monday afternoon.“This prohibition applies to all professional, social and community gatherings, regardless of their sponsor, that are not engaged in essential activities,” the order states.

Read all the details of the order from Orange County officials.

Health officials directed the closure of bars and other alcohol-serving establishments that don’t serve food. The order also prohibits restaurants from provide on-site dining. Only curbside service and takeout are now allowed.

“Any person who violates or who refuses or willfully neglects to obey this regulation is subject to fine, imprisonment, or both,” the order states. It cites California’s Government Code, which provides for fines of up to $1,000, six months in jail or both.

“We are taking these mitigation steps in line with a directive issued by Governor Newsom to help slow the spread of COVID-19,” Orange County Health Officer Dr. Nichole Quick said in a statement. “We recognize community members may experience anxiety related to the social disruption caused by COVID-19, and want to encourage residents to reach out to loved ones using appropriate methods like telephone, video messaging, email and text.”

Heh. My own company has basically banned meetings with customers but I'm working on a project for the Orange County government now, I wonder if it was deemed essential if they'd get a waiver :p

They actually came out the next day saying that people misunderstand the message. They said work as usual just keep distance even though the notice said no gathering including "place of work". They said they will come out with a new notice... but haven't seen it yet yesterday. Very confusing over all.
