Los Angeles—City Attorney Mike Feuer continues his focused enforcement efforts on non-essential businesses which remained open in violation of the Mayor’s Safer At Home Order. Feuer announced today that his office has filed criminal charges against a total of 60 businesses.
"As Dr. Fauci warned this morning, all our hard work to slow the spread of COVID-19 could be squandered if businesses violate the rules and open prematurely," said Feuer. "Of course all of us want to get back to work and return to our routines, and I’m extremely sympathetic with businesses that are struggling so much right now. But we will get our economy going sooner if all of us have the discipline to follow the rules now. So as we begin the task of carefully reopening Los Angeles, my office will continue to be vigilant in enforcing the Safer at Home Order, ensuring that non-essential businesses open only after our health experts say it’s safe to do so."
The 60 businesses include tobacco stores, gyms, hair salons, beauty supply stores and a car wash.
