Since almost everyone seems to be unsure about this it would be really nice if the governor would make his announcements more clearly and say flat out yes you can go outside to walk or hike or you cannot. Would certainly cut down on all the emails.

I think it is not clear yet whether the Governor's order will be consistent or inconsistent with the earlier county orders that explicitly do allow some outdoor activities as long as proper social distancing is followed. This morning, in a special report by the East Bay Times "Gov. Newsom's coronavirus shutdown in California: What are the rules?", it says:
"Go outside, get some fresh air and clear your head this weekend. Yes, hiking, mountain biking and riding horses in parks and open spaces are permitted during the shutdown. But do so carefully and don't go in groups."
Of course the East Bay Times is not definitive, and I don't know its source for this. But I'd be surprised if the Governor really intended to forbid all outdoor activities, and I think further clarification from his office is highly likely.
Good birding when possible, and good health as much as possible.
