(KION and CBS SF) Gov. Gavin Newsom announced guidelines that restaurants will need to follow when they reopen at a news conference Tuesday.

He started by emphasizing the importance of testing in California, saying it is one of the six main indicators that the state needs to make progress in reopening.

Newsom then announced that the progress being made was allowing him to announce more modifications that apply to offices and strip malls, including outlet malls, and other services, such as car washes and pet grooming.

When the Stay at Home order is modified to allow for dine-in restaurants, Newsom said they will need to follow practices that include increased cleaning protocols, especially ones focused on clearing and cleaning items used by customers and staff, and cleaning of high traffic areas.

Newsom said they will be required to disinfect commonly used surfaces- such as doors, door handles, light switches, waiting area chairs, credit card terminals, pin pads, receipt trays, serving trays and water pitchers- often.

He did not give a specific date for when dine-in restaurants can reopen.
