LOS ANGELES—Continuing his office’s focused enforcement of the Mayor’s Executive Order during the COVID-19 crisis, City Attorney Mike Feuer today announced criminal filings against another 10 allegedly non-essential businesses for operating after they were warned to close.
"The Mayor’s Safer At Home Order is working," said Feuer. "But all non-essential businesses need to comply, without exception. The sooner we achieve maximum compliance—from businesses and residents alike—the sooner all Angelenos can get back to work and resume our normal routines."
"Angelenos and the businesses that serve them have overwhelmingly embraced Safer at Home — and we can’t allow a few to put entire communities at risk," said Mayor Eric Garcetti. "Voluntary cooperation is always the goal, but we won’t hesitate to take stronger action when it becomes necessary to keep people safe."
