Monday morning bar owners once again face the unknown as the state of California ordered seven counties, including Kern County, to close down its bars again.

Some bar owners say they invested thousands of dollars into preparing for re-opening, only to close again.

The move comes as the state sees a record spike in daily COVID-19 cases since bars reopened three weeks ago.

Some of the counties ordered to close their bars include Kern, Fresno, Los Angeles, and Tulare. While other county bars in Santa Barbara, Sacramento, Riverside, and Ventura are being recommended to close.
