California Gov. Gavin Newsom is calling for all bars, wineries, nightclubs and brewpubs to close in the nation's most populous state.

Also Sunday he urged seniors and people with chronic conditions to isolate themselves at home in a bid to contain the spread of the coronavirus.

Newsom says the state will reduce current occupancy in restaurants by half to keep people farther away from each other.

It comes as the Illinois governor shut down all bars and restaurants and officials elsewhere said they were considering similar restrictions.

Newsom issued guidance last week to cancel or postpone gatherings large and small that have roiled California's economy.
