LA County sheriff: Deputies won’t enforce Newsom’s stay-at-home order

New Announcement LA County sheriff: Deputies won’t enforce Newsom’s stay-at-home order Sheriff Villanueva said businesses have been through enough.

County Sheriff Alex Villanueva will not instruct his deputies to enforce a new statewide stay-at-home order announced Thursday that could force businesses to temporarily shut down.

Under Gov. Gavin Newsom’s order, many businesses and activities would be forced to close for at least three weeks if capacity rates at intensive care units in several regions — the Bay Area, Northern California, the greater Sacramento region, the San Joaquin Valley and Southern California — dip below 15%.

The new rules would be implemented within 48 hours of hitting that level.

I want to stay away from business [sic] that are trying to comply, they bent over backwards to modify their operations to conform to these orders and then they have the rug yanked out from under them, that’s a disservice, I don’t want to make them more miserable,” he told Fox affiliate, KTTV-TV, according to a tweet.

Sheriff Villanueva also tells me he found out about the new stay at home orders from Governor Newsom’s press conference, and there was no coordination with law enforcement beforehand, which he says is concerning when the Governor is expecting enforcement of his orders.

Stay tuned as this is a developing story.
