SACRAMENTO, Calif. (Reuters) - California could allow pro sporting events to take place without fans present as soon as June 1, Governor Gavin Newsom said on Monday.

Such a move, which would be predicated on a continued decrease of coronavirus-related cases and hospitalizations in the most populous U.S. state, comes as the San Francisco Bay Area opens for manufacturing, logistics and curbside retail services.
