Your al fresco hamburger is now all legal.
Gov. Gavin Newsom on Monday lifted the regional stay-at-home orders across California, allowing – among other things – outside dining at restaurants.
“We’re seeing a flattening of the curve. Everything that should be up is up, everything that should be down is down,” said the governor at a press conference in Sacramento.
He also withdrew the “stay-at-home” order for the hours of 10 p.m. to 5 a.m., a curfew that was widely ignored.
