REDWOOD CITY (CBS SF) — Indoor Sunday religious services were banned at all San Mateo County churches Sunday as the county reinstituted COVID-19 business closures that also included shopping malls, indoor fitness centers and indoor beauty salons.
The county was added to the state’s COVID-19 watchlist last week — the last Bay Area holdout — due to an increase in the rate of coronavirus cases.
As of Friday, San Mateo County has had 5,544 confirmed cases since the COVID-19 outbreak began in March. There have been 119 deaths — 80 of those in nursing homes — in the county with 60 residents currently hospitalized. Of those, 4 are under ICU treatment.
As a result state health officials ordered San Mateo County officials to begin rolling back closing at 12:01 a.m. Sunday. The following industries or activities must shut down, unless they can be modified to operate outside or by pick-up:
- Gyms and fitness centers
- Places of worship and cultural ceremonies, like weddings and funerals
- Offices for non-critical infrastructure sectors
- Personal care services, like nail salons and body waxing
- Hair salons and barbershops
- Shopping malls
“It’s clear that COVID-19 continues to spread in our community and in the Bay Area,” said San Mateo County Manager Mike Callagy. “It’s vital that we all do everything we can – wearing face coverings, washing our hands, and avoiding gatherings – to slow and eventually stop the spread. These individual actions can make a huge difference.”
