CALIFORNIA - Amid more defiance from local governments, California Gov. Gavin Newsom said Monday that some businesses can reopen as early as Friday with restrictions to help prevent spread of the coronavirus.

The plan under the second phase of the governor’s four-point reopening plan allows retailers such as clothing stores, sporting goods and florists to resume operations with curbside pickup.

It did not immediately include dine-in eating at restaurants and reopening of offices, which were in previously stated Phase 2 plans.

Newsom said a key consideration for entering Phase 2 is the ability for health authorities to test and conduct contact tracing of infections.
