  6. movie theaters,

  7. zoos and museums, and

  8. card rooms.

  9. Additionally, the 29 counties on the state’s “Monitor List” which have been on the list for 3 or more consecutive days will be required to immediately shut down the following unless they can modify to operate outside or allow pick-up:

  10. gyms and fitness centers,
