Los Angeles County Department of Public Health created a ban on outdoor dining throughout the area, the city of Beverly Hills has rejected that ban by way of a unanimous city council vote.
COVID-19 lock downs have shaken the economic, political, and social landscape of the entire country. Los Angeles county is one of the most aggressive areas in the world for placing ridiculous bans on businesses. Outdoor dining is on their radar, but the citizens are showing they will not stand for more restrictions.
Beverly hills called the mandate unrealistic and stated that one blanket order cannot apply to the entire metropolitan area that makes up Los Angeles County. They are working to protect their restaurants and limit their vulnerability to economic hardship. Government officials have proven that they are completely willing to overstretch their power.
American cities across the country need to stand against these unconstitutional orders and mandates that are being created. It has been proven that massive shutdowns are not the answer to restore normalcy. They will destroy American jobs and put many small businesses in financial ruins.
COVID-19 has taken so much from every American, and the government mandates have not helped cure the virus, but have only destroyed the American economy. Beverly Hills is showing that even the most liberal areas can find their freedoms, and the country should follow their lead.
