Reopens churches, hair salons, schools and restaurants.
ALTURAS, Kalifornia (PNN) - April 30, 2020 - Governor Gavin Newsom has lost the consent of the governed.
A county in Northern Kalifornia announced it will be reopening its schools, hair salons and restaurants on Friday.
Modoc County, a small county of about 9,000 people located in northeastern Kalifornia will be reopening because it has zero coronavirus cases.
Ned Coe, a cattle rancher and county supervisor, said the mental health and economic health of his county is very important and after consulting with health officials, the Board of Supervisors voted to reopen.
“Just as our physical health is vital for our citizens, so is the mental health and the economic health of our citizens,” Coe said.
Coe said county officials sent a letter to tyrannical Governor Gavin Newsom about a week ago outlining their plan, which he said meets the guidelines outlined by the governor for stay-home orders to be eased out in phases, but they haven’t received a response. He said he was not worried the state might take legal action against the county for violating Newsom’s order, which does not yet allow such businesses to reopen.
Orange County is also defying Newsom after he announced a “hard close” of all OC beaches.
The Orange County Sheriff said his department’s intention “is to not take enforcement action on this order. But again, I haven’t seen it yet.”
