BAKERSFIELD, Calif. — Moo Creamery, a local restaurant and ice cream shop, said it was told by the Kern County Public Health Department to shut down dine-in options just hours after reopening.

Moo Creamery reopened Wednesday for dine-in services and Bakersfield residents lined up to enjoy. Management at the restaurant said that after opening their doors, public health asked them to stop dine-in services.

23ABC reached out to Kern County Public Health to confirm they told Moo Creamery to stop dine-in options, but have not yet heard back.

During the Kern County Board of Supervisors meeting Tuesday, supervisors discussed entering Phase 2 of the Gov. Gavin Newsom's plan to reopen the state. Phase 2 includes reopening bookstores, clothing stores, florists and sporting goods stores by Friday. Dining indoors at restaurants is not currently allowed under the governor's four-stage plan for reopening.
