L.A. Lockdown Adds New Rules Against Outdoor Dining

The move comes amid a litany of similarly restrictive measures in other locales from coast to coast.

Thanksgiving 2020 is unfortunately coinciding with a massive uptick in coronavirus cases nationwide, and this has forced a number of state and local officials to take drastic action.

The fear is that the mixing of households that usually occurs during the family-forward holiday will push the rate of spread of COVID-19 into the stratosphere, overwhelming the medical infrastructure of the nation similarly to the conditions experienced in the spring of this year.

In Pennsylvania, authorities not only encouraged residents to call the police on their neighbors’ “oversized” gatherings, but they also banned the sale of alcohol in bars after 5:30pm on Wednesday – one of the busiest days of the year in the restaurant industry.

Now, clear across the country, restrictive new rules are coming to Los Angeles.

Public health officials in Los Angeles County ordered a ban on outdoor dining — without evidence linking outdoor eating or drinking to a claimed increase in local coronavirus infections — on Tuesday. The prohibition becomes effective at 10:00 p.m. on Wednesday.

Los Angeles County’s Public Health Department declared on Tuesday that “surging COVID-19” necessitates the decree “to avoid overwhelming our hospitals and healthcare staff” and “save lives.”

The decision was a controversial one:

The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors held a meeting on Tuesday to discuss the county’s public health department order. Despite dozens of stakeholders calling in — the meeting was held digitally via video conference, ostensibly due to coronavirus concerns — the board voted 3-2 to uphold the shutdown order against food and drink service businesses.

Kathryn Barger, who chairs the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, was one of two board members voting to overturn the lockdown order. She described it as “arbitrary” and claimed it would increase the spread of coronavirus by encouraging “private gatherings.”

Now the question of how to enforce these rules comes into play, particularly after law enforcement officers the nation over have repeatedly declared their intent to not enforce some of these stricter guidelines.
