BAKERSFIELD, Calif. — The BLVD, a local entertainment restaurant venue, announced that amid Governor Gavin Newsom's recommendation to close bars and wineries, it will be closed for the foreseeable future.

Newsom on Sunday called for all bars, wineries, nightclubs and brewpubs to close and urged seniors and people with chronic health conditions to isolate themselves at home in a bid to contain the spread of the coronavirus.

The BLVD said its main priority is the safety and well-being of the public and its staff. BLVD owners will continue to monitor officials closely to stay updated.

Temblor Brewing Company, however, said it is still open for business and is operating at half-capacity in line with Gov. Gavin Newsom’s recommendation.

According to its social media, Temblor will now offer curbside service for residents who want to order ahead. It will also be closing its kitchen at 8 p.m. from Sunday through Thursday and 10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.

The company also announced that all events are canceled until further notice.
