California has issued a ban on singing in places of worship as part of its measures to stop the spread of the coronavirus.
How we got here: California’s Department of Public Health published new rules earlier this week amid an increase in coronavirus cases in the state. Most of the guidelines are similar to the initial measures that were introduced at the beginning of the pandemic, such as wearing masks, keeping recommended distance, and staying home.
California Gov. Gavin Newsom this week reintroduced some of the strictest measures to stop the spread of the virus. He ordered restaurants, bars, movie theaters, card rooms, museums, and other venues to halt indoor service.
