SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- San Diego County issued cease and desist orders to several businesses Monday after the county entered the state’s restrictive purple tier.

According to the county, the orders were issued to several local restaurants, gyms, and yoga studios.

The news came after Governor Gavin Newsom hit the brakes on economic activity, moving 28 more counties into the state’s most restrictive tier.

The purple tier restricts capacity at retail businesses, closes gyms, and limits restaurants to outdoor-only service.

Monday, Newsom forced 41 of California’s 58 counties to the purple tier. Those counties represent nearly 95 percent of the state’s population.

Prior to Monday, only 13 counties were in the purple tier.
