San Diego County ‘Pausing’ State COVID-19 Lockdown After Judge Ruled Against Regional Orders

San Diego County ‘Pausing’ State COVID-19 Lockdown After Judge Ruled Against Regional Orders

California Gov. Gavin Newsom once again ordered a state lockdown in response to an uptick of COVID-19 cases. Some places have refused to follow this order.

San Diego County has paused enforcement after a judge ruled against a regional order affecting two strip clubs.

In November, San Diego Superior Court Judge Joel R. Wohlfeil ordered the county to open strip clubs due to the First Amendment.

Wohlfeil made his final ruling this week:

“Until we have clarity, we have suspended enforcement activities against restaurants and live entertainment establishments,” Workman wrote in a statement. “With record numbers of new infections, deaths, and ICUs at capacity, we want to remind everyone to do your part. Please don’t gather, socially distance, wear a face covering, and wash your hands.”

Wohlfeil cited the lack of evidence from the County that proves the two live adult entertainment venues would increase the risk of exposure to patrons or that the establishments have impacted ICU bed capacity throughout Southern California, “much less in San Diego County.”

“Accordingly, the Court finds that Plaintiffs have been devoid of COVID, have done nothing to contribute to the spread of COVID, and have honored their representations to Dr. Joel Day and the County,” said Wohlfeil, according to court records.

Wohlfeil also said that the harm of denying the injunction would be greater to the strip clubs more than the harm to the County.

So Wohlfeil made his initial ruling over a month ago. Pacers strip club attorney Jason Sacuzzo mentioned “there hasn’t been a single case of COVID-19 transmission traced to” Pacers or Cheetahs strip club since the first ruling.

The ruling forced county and state officials to pause any enforcement of Newsom’s orders:

San Diego County spokesman Michael Workman told ABC 10News that both state and county authorities are examining Wednesday’s ruling and will seek clarity from the court. Until then, the county will cease pursuing the shutdown of restaurants and strip clubs.

“Until we have clarity, we have suspended enforcement activities against restaurants and live entertainment establishments,” Workman wrote in a statement. “With record numbers of new infections, deaths, and ICUs at capacity, we want to remind everyone to do your part. Please don’t gather, socially distance, wear a face covering, and wash your hands.”

The science that these people supposedly love shows that the majority of infections come from being at home. Not restaurants. Not grocery stores. Not school. HOME.

Restaurant Dirty French Laundry That CA Gov Was Caught Eating At Earned Millions In COVID-19 Relief Checks

I can see that a state the size of California would benefit a regionalized approach. Indeed, we all intuitively understand that a city has different issues than a rural county. A public health order that was targeted, that empowered counties and cities to tailor their responses, and was specific to the issues at hand, would be a smart, flexible order.

But we don’t have that here.

The reason is simple: the state officials, elected and public health, have one tool — essentially, a large hammer. So they’re going around trying to nail everything down. They’re inflexible, arrogant, conceited, and not willing to listen as the science evolves and changes. That’s the antithesis of intelligent management during a pandemic.

The state (and federal) officials have burned their trust. They’ve been contradictory, tone-deaf, and hypocritical. That’s why the good people of California are resisting.

2020 is strange. Strippers have become heroes, and Supreme Court Justices have become whores.

Sigh. “We protect the First Amendment where it isn’t needed, such as strip clubs. And we fail to protect the First Amendment where it is needed, such as universities.”
