Newsom says indoor operations at restaurants, wineries and tasting rooms, family entertainment centers, movie theaters, zoos and museums and cardroom gambling businesses must close. Bars were ordered to close both indoor and outdoor operations.
The other 18 counties that will be affected by the shutdown orders are Contra Costa, Fresno, Glenn, Imperial, Kern, Kings, Merced, Orange, Riverside, Sacramento, San Bernardino, San Joaquin, Santa Barbara, Solano, Santa Clara, Stanislaus, Tulare and Ventura.
The current re-closure order will be in place for three weeks.
"This doesn't mean restaurants are shut down", Newsom said.
Newsom told reporters at a news conference Wednesday that the changes were being implemented because of a surge in the number of coronavirus cases and hospitalizations in 19 counties and the need to focus on locations with the greatest risks of spread.
Newsom stated California had seen a 43% increase in the coronavirus hospitalization rate and a almost 50% increase in COVID-19 cases in the past 14 days, as well as 110 deaths within the past 24 hours.
The positivity rate - the number of people who have tested positive among the total number of tests administered - has gone up to 6.4% over the past seven days.
In that time, hospitalizations increased 51% and ICU admissions increased 47%.

"This will be the last straw for a lot of restaurants", Condi said, adding the state hasn't provided evidence to specifically show dining in restaurants is helping fuel the increase in virus cases.
Other states, including Texas and Florida, have also paused their reopenings after seeing similar spikes in coronavirus cases. Avoid crowds. Do not gather with people you do not live with.
The strike teams - which will consist of members from the state's Alcohol Beverage Control, Occupational Safety and Health Administration, Highway Patrol and other departments - will target "non-compliant workplaces".
"We have a responsibility, I think, at the same time to go after the people who are thumbing their nose, that are particularly, being aggressive, reticent to do anything to not only protect you as a customer... but aren't even protecting their workers", Newsom said.
