Restaurants and Bars Are Closing in Ohio, Massachusetts, California, Illinois, and Washington Due To The Growing Concerns For Coronavirus.
Due to the growing concerns regarding the novel coronavirus, significant steps are being taken by the different governments worldwide. In order to slow down the rapid spreading of the coronavirus, the governors of the five states — Illinois, Washington, Ohio, California, and Massachusetts gave orders to close the restaurants, bars, and wineries for some days so that the spread of the virus can be controlled and citizens may not get affected. Similarly, the mayors of the other country took the concern in the same way and ordered the public gathering spots for a few days until the situation came under control.
Governor of Ohio, Mike DeWine, said that restaurants and bars of Ohio could be open for deliveries and takeaways. Still, they should not offer any seat for public gathering and congregating.
Gov. Mike DeWine tweeted on his account that, “I’m aware that this will impact many, many good workers, I can’t tell you how sorry I am, but we will work to mitigate the suffering. It is our goal for everyone to get through this. Every day we delay, more people will die.”
Governor of California, Gavin Newsom, ordered that all the brew pubs, bars, night clubs, and wineries should remain closed for some days, and asked them to become 65 self-isolate.
Just after the California Governor orders, a few hours later, Mayor of Los Angeles, Eric Garcetti, also suggested that bars, nightclubs, restaurants, and entertainment venues that are effective during the midnight and lots of people gather there, will remain closed till the 31st March, Sunday.
Regarding this growing concern, all other counties across the country have taken similar steps and have ordered to close down all the spots where public gathering or congregating is possible so that unknowingly the virus cannot be passed through each other and hamper any life.
Similarly, the federal system of Illinois has also ordered the restaurants and bars till the 30 March.
On Sunday, Governor JB Pritzker answered the question of the media reports by saying that, “There are no easy decisions left to make as we address this unprecedented crisis, as your governor, I can’t allow the gravity of these decisions from taking the measures that the science and the experts say will keep people safe.”
He also added in his conversations that he took this decision because the residents of the state have ignored the advice suggested by the Centers for Disease Control that was about to maintain the social distance and self-isolate during this rapid spread of the virus for few days. Still, so many residents didn’t take it seriously and went out to celebrate their weekend.
