Gov. Newsom's order closing bars in LA County will affect some businesses more than others

Talk about a last call!

Bar patrons were trying to get their drinks in before Newsom's order on closing bars went into effect Sunday in several counties, including Los Angeles.

Turns out, that if the establishment serves drinks, while people are sitting down and eating, they can stay open - at least for now.

The owners we spoke to are worried.

Many fear there may be more limitations before the July 4th weekend, as state officials look for ways to control the increase in positive COVID-19 results among younger people, who are also getting sick and ending up in hospitals, according to health officials.

The governor said that bars are the least essential service, where the most dangerous behavior seems to be happening.

According to Newsom's order, "Alcohol consumption makes people less likely to wear masks or social distance, and people speak louder in bars. Leading to the greater projection of droplets."

FOX 11 spoke with some of the bar/restaurant owners that are staying open but fear the order will scare people.

Newsom will speak Monday at noon, clarifying the order and to update the situation.
