To see the current list, visit this website, scroll down to the Outdoor Recreation section, then click the first drop-down that says, “NEW! Can I still exercise? Take my kids to the park for fresh air? Take a walk around the block?”

Gov. Gavin Newsom said Friday that an announcement is expected to be made in days on plans to ease restrictions on Stay-At-Home orders, cautioning, however, that there would be modifications in place to keep people safe.

    He better back the hell off quickly or he will find out what it means to lose the consent of the governed. I’m an essential worker so I will be at my job, but I cheer for those that will be in the front lines.

  2. Donald West says:

    As usual the report is not accurate, using swimming as not being on the list so beach goers are wrong. Non-exhaustive means the list is not complete, there are more things you can do. Unless a list comes out saying what you can’t do then you can do what you want

    Interesting that you can play table tennis and not regular tennis, where you are 50 feet away from your opponent,,,

  4. Is this an Emperor Newsom memo ?

  5. WhatTheHeck? says:

    Just an outright egregious overreach of power.The death toll is inflated, doctors and nurses coming forward questioning instructions from health depts & administrators to put COVID-19 on death certs even if they weren’t tested, & not accounting for primary co-morbidities. This is not a health epidemic but a POLITICAL EPIDEMIC. The numbers are so far below what they scared everyone with, the models were orders of magnitude off. More people die from SEPSIS every year, we don’t shut down for that! OUR HOSPITALS ARE EMPTY & WE ARE FURLOUGHING Drs & Nurses. We ordered 30k ventilators and have used 5k. TURN OFF YOUR TV, use a VPN to search for the truth and RAISE YOUR VOICE because WE ARE BEING LIED TO!!!
