As coronavirus cases surge, Los Angeles County officials have announced a set of stringent new restrictions that go into effect this Friday, Nov. 20.

The new rules impose a curfew on restaurants, wineries, breweries and bars and they limit the number of people these establishments can seat. The rules also limit the size of social gatherings.

When the new restrictions go into effect, here's what they'll look like:

  1. Restaurants, wineries, breweries and all other non-essential businesses must close by 10 p.m. They can open for service at 6 a.m.

  2. For restaurants with outdoor service, outdoor dining capacity is limited to 50%.
  3. Outdoor gatherings are limited to a maximum of 15 people from no more than three households.
