LA County Dining Shutdown Ban Facing Pushback

Will Donald Trump win the 2024 election?

Resistance is mounting over outdoor dining shutdown rules to help stop the spread of COVID-19 in Los Angeles County.

The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health ordered the ban to take effect last week and to last until December 20.

This week, however, the Beverly Hills City Council voted unanimously to approve a resolution to repeal the Los Angeles County ban.

ABC News reports:

Citing “a detrimental impact on local businesses and lack of scientific evidence used by the County,” the resolution calls for a motion to be placed on the board’s agenda on Dec. 8 to repeal it.

As California officials are calling for bans and other restrictions placed on restaurants, their own actions speak otherwise.

Los Angeles County Supervisor Sheila Kuehl dined outdoors after she voted to ban outdoor dining at Los Angeles County’s restaurants because of health risks posed by COVID-19.

Kuehl was caught dining at Il Forno Trattoria in Santa Monica, California, after Fox 11 received a number of tips from citizens.

The ban will affect about 31,000 restaurants.

In response to media questions about her dining decision, Kuehl’s office issued a statement:

“She did dine al fresco at Il Forno on the very last day it was permissible. She loves Il Forno, has been saddened to see it, like so many restaurants, suffer from a decline in revenue. She ate there, taking appropriate precautions, and sadly will not dine there again until our Public Health Orders permit.”

Critics pointed out Kuehl justified her vote to ban outdoor dining because she said, “Outside dining is the most dangerous situation.”

California Democrat Governor Gavin Newsom was also caught eating indoors at a fancy restaurant a few weeks ago at a birthday party dinner.

The dinner party included a lobbyist and all of the attendees were sitting close to each other without masks.

It’s not surprising to see politicians enforce rules on their constituents while operating under separate standards for themselves.
