Newsom: 70% of the state’s businesses now allowed to open


SAN DIEGO — Gov. Gavin Newsom updated the state on California’s coronavirus response Monday after loosening some restrictions over the weekend.

Newsom said over 70% of the state’s businesses are now allowed to open in some capacity, after allowing previously closed stores and other companies to modify their practices and return to work.

The governor also announced the leaders of the Western States Pact — which includes Oregon, Washington, Colorado, California and Nevada — have sent a letter to President Donald Trump asking for $1 trillion in relief funds for the states.
