Cycling still allowed as California Issues Stay At Home Order

California has issued a "stay at home" order to residents as it tries to stem the march of the coronavirus across the most populated US state. Event Permits Suspended until the beginning of May

Governor Gavin Newsom told Californians they should only leave their homes when necessary during the pandemic.

He earlier estimated more than half of the 40 million people in his state would contract Covid-19 in just the next two months.

The virus has claimed 205 lives in the US and infected more than 14,000.

Globally nearly 250,000 patients have tested positive for the respiratory illness and more than 10,000 have died.

Mr Newsom said on Thursday evening: "This is a moment we need to make tough decisions. We need to recognise reality."

California is among the first US states to bring in blanket restrictions. Earlier this week Nevada said non-essential businesses should close for 30 days.

The governor's order will allow residents to leave their homes to buy groceries or medicine, or walk a dog or take exercise, but seeks to limit public interactions. Just stay 6 feet away from others whilst exersizing!

It will force businesses deemed non-essential to close, while allowing others including grocery stores, pharmacies, banks and petrol stations to stay open.

John Mcconnnell, from Clif Family Winery said "Everything is Shut Down. Except you. You're Still Very Much Alive. A ride alone is better than no ride at all"

Like many events scheduled in April, CampoVelo Napa Valley has been postponed to April 30 - May 2, 2021, all registered guests will be transferred to the 2021 event.

John Mcconnnell, from Clif Family Winery said "Everything is Shut Down. Except you. You're Still Very Much Alive. A ride alone is better than no ride at all"
