Los Angeles County Announces More COVID-19 Restrictions, Curfew

More restrictions come a day after Gov. Newsom announced more statewide order

By Evan Symon, November 18, 2020 2:49 am

A day after Governor Gavin Newsom announced more statewide restrictions and counties moving to higher reopening tiers, the Los Angeles County Department of Health announced that more restrictions , as well as a business curfew, would be placed in the county.

Among the new restrictions expected to begin Friday is a limitation of up to 15 people from three households being able to gather in one place. Currently, while there is still a restriction of three households, there was no firm limit on the total number of people.

Businesses in Los Angeles County will also be severely affected, with all restaurants, breweries, wineries, bars, and all other non-essential retail places having to close no later than 10 P.M. and open no earlier than 6 A.M.

Restaurants will also see even more restrictions, with outdoor service capacity being reduced to 50%. Other businesses, like offices and personal care businesses such as nail salons and barber shops, are to limit their capacity to only 25%. Personal care establishments will also have to return to advance appointments only.

Masks at all establishments are also now to be required with no exceptions.

Many business owners in LA County reacted to the news negatively on Tuesday, with many expressing doubt that this help reduce COVID-19 rates, as well as expressing great worry over the financial negatives of this.

“It’s like the County doesn’t even realize that they’re taking away what little business we have left,” said Glendale restaurant owner Sal D’Amico to the Globe. “A lot of use can’t rely on deliveries and pickups. We need people in the seats to keep the lights on. Now that’s cut in half.

“I mean, we’ve been six feet away. We’ve sanitized everything. We’re wearing masks and gloves. What more do they want? What more do we have to do?

“LA County may see this as a precaution, but I see this as going into the red. Plus, suburbs and cities outside of LA are way different and don’t have as many people and  can social distance better. Why punish the entire county when it’s really all on Los Angeles the city?”

Other business owners expressed similar frustrations.

“The capacity limitations are just killing us,” said flower shop owner Carlita Hernandez in a Globe interview. “A lot of big days for me, like Mother’s Day, became average. And now, coming into the Christmas season and December, the month where I usually get back into the black, they do this. They reduce my customers again. Walk-ins are a big part of my business, and this just, well, it just kills us.

“Why can’t there be exceptions? A lot of stores already have lines to get in. Those are going to be even longer now, and a lot of those people will likely give up because of the line.

“COVID-19 is important. It’s an important thing to stop. But it seems like they’re asking us to sacrifice our businesses, our livelihoods, to do that. That’s unbelievable.”

LA County officials focus on COVID-19 spread reductions, saving lives over economic woes

LA County officials have maintained that all of this has been for health reasons due to COVID-19 spreading exponentially nationwide during the last few weeks.

“It is clear that L.A. County is at a very dangerous point in the pandemic,” said LA County Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer on Tuesday about the restrictions.

LA County has been experiencing the highest number of positive cases since July, with nearly 7,000 new cases being reported during the weekend. LA County, as of Tuesday, now has more than 340,000 reported COVID-19 cases and 7,275 reported deaths from the virus since the pandemic first hit in March. The number of total county residents hospitalized also pushed above 1,000 for the first time since the summer.

Ferrer has said that younger residents in the 18-29 age group have, in addition to getting higher infection rates in the last several months, been the major age group of carriers to older and more vulnerable groups.

“This is most unfortunate and it serves as a stark reminder that young people are spreading the virus with disastrous results for our elderly,” added Ferrer.

The new County restrictions are to begin on Friday, with no end date begin given.

  1. All businesses must revolt and ignore this nonsense. No one listens to this fool and incompetent Ferrer. It’s time to take back our lives or this will go on forever.

    1. Just get back to normal on your own and stop this nonsense. There is no good reason for these restrictions. Our so-called “leaders” have never moved in the direction of telling us how to live with COVID and at the same time keep everything open, a perfectly manageable goal, given all we know now about this darned virus. This was actually our first clue that this was actually punitive and was being done for something other than the stated reason. These people have no credibility. They pushed it too far MONTHS ago and now they are a laughingstock. Whatever businesses (and individuals) can do to move us in a positive direction and bring us back to looking and operating normally again they should do if at all possible. If you’re not comfortable with everything getting back to normal ASAP then stay home. But for the rest of us, let’s live alongside of this thing like we do with, e.g., the seasonal flu. It’s enough already.

    2. This is all crazy, it is a scam! PCRdemic as it has been put. While the cold virus is real, it is not covid. Covid has never been isoltated or identified. CDC admits this on pg 39 of their own document put out a month ago. and the PCR test that is suppose to confirm the presence of the virus never isolate and identified is not being correctly used, it is not a medical diagnostic . It magnifies rna fragments but it can not tell them apart, it cant’ tell if they are alive or dead. Every cycle it magnifies more and anything past 30 provides such a high percentage of false positives near 84% that this should be a flag especially to those that know better. And Ferrer, she is not a medical person, she is not a scientist.. she is social worker.. She has degrees in community, public health and social work. None of these people know how to interpret numbers.. only looking at positive results, ignoring negative test results, or the flat lines in hospital numbers and deaths. While this seasonal corona virus is real, front line doctors say it has not been more than the seasonal flu. These tyranical decisions are being made on false data by an inept state government. Who will they have to govern but homeless and illegals when everyone else has gone? They all need to go! Info on Covid
      The CDC document is titled, “CDC 2019-Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) Real-Time RT-PCR Diagnostic Panel.” It is dated July 13, 2020.
      Buried deep in the document, on page 39, in a section titled, “Performance Characteristics,” we have this: “Since no quantified virus isolates of the 2019-nCoV are currently available, assays [diagnostic tests] designed for detection of the 2019-nCoV RNA were tested with characterized stocks of in vitro transcribed full length RNA…”

      The key phrase there is: “Since no quantified virus isolates of the 2019-nCoV are currently available…”

      Every object that exists can be quantified, which is to say, measured. The use of the term “quantified” in that phrase means: the CDC has no measurable amount of the virus, because it is unavailable. THE CDC HAS NO VIRUS.

      A further tip-off is the use of the word ‘isolates.” This means NO ISOLATED VIRUS IS AVAILABLE.




      As if this were not enough of a revelation to shock the world, the CDC goes on to say they are presenting a diagnostic PCR test to detect the virus-that-hasn’t-been-isolated…and the test is looking for RNA which is PRESUMED to come from the virus that hasn’t been proved to exist.

      And using this test, the CDC and every other public health agency in the world are counting COVID cases and deaths…and governments have instituted lockdowns and economic devastation using those case and death numbers as justification. , PCR Test is Key to the Pandemic Fraud.

      Info on the PCR efore his death in 2019 Mullis told reporters:

      “Scientists are doing an awful lot of damage to the world in the name of helping it. I don’t mind attacking my own fraternity because I am ashamed of it.” –Kary Mullis, Inventor of Polymerase Chain Reaction

      Mullis often spoke out against using his test for diagnosing illnesses. So-called experts ignored the warning. But now, many independent scientists and medical professionals are coming forward to denounce the idiocy of governments, the media and NGO’s for pushing the number of novel coronavirus “cases” (not deaths) premised on spurious results from this problematic PCR test.

  2. long beach is suffering !!! our non profits and homeless outreach have been totally destroyed…our hospitals are empty!!! even the mayor said there is only 40 covid19 people between memoral and st marys hospitals we need HELP!!!
    Please there is still mental health and homeless population… they plan to keep all the CARES act and unitedway money while erasing the {un welcome) population

  3. I agree with you PDR its time to force a change. Unfortunately the people in this country are to stupid and do not have the courage to do anything. They will do the same thing they have done to stop a twenty year illegal war in the middle east. Nothing. Unemployment at never before seen levels, no health insurance, unemployment benefits ending,, small businesses going under, kids not allowed to go to school during the most crucial years in their lives for development, debt, and soon foreclosures and evictions and we have allowed this to happen. We all know our government does not give a crap about this state, country and people but that is ok with us.. They do not even agree to a new stimulus deal while you have literally thousands of people in their cars lined up to get food. In Texas. Are you kidding me? You think they would change if 2 million angry people are on the streets in front of their homes and offices, plus the media buildings? That will never happen in a country filled with weak people. So shut up and do as they say.

  4. There is no increase in cases. The CDC simply stopped tracking influenza cases. ALL respiratory infections are being reported as COVID. The PCR antibody tests have been proven to produce 50-100% false positives. Cases may or may not have gone up, we can’t really tell with all the chicanery, but death rates have not. This is not about a disease. It is about breaking the economy as a prelude to forcing us to accept UBI and compulsory vaccination, but above all it’s about training us to be dependent and compliant. It will continue until we fight back in sufficient numbers to force them to stop. One resister here and there only gets themselves arrested; we need thousands.

  5. Everything is Covid these days. People are getting FLU shots buy there is no longer a FLU. No head colds….
    So the test numbers go up because all of the above are COVID. People getting injected with FLU get their COVID test and are tested positive for COVID. Nice system. Do people just randomly decide to get tested and for what reason? Do they get tested everyday because a negative today may be a positive tomorrow.

  6. This is how a ruling party normalizes FASCISM on the people, thus they already built the “cause” with the “support” now they are free to implement “for the good of” portion to train them for more upcoming controlling the people methods then it becomes full COMMUNISM. This is when people will question how did this happen, as it will be TOO LATE.

  7. I think there is plenty of evidence out there to conclude that the COVID death rates are inflated too.
    Not only are L.A. County and California so-called “death total” numbers repeated every 15 minutes, every day, on radio news blurbs, but U.S. total numbers too. But remember there was a financial incentive to cash-poor hospitals and the medical community to call every death a COVID death, and many did that very thing, as has been reported. So who knows what the real U.S. COVID death number is now? Definitely lower, but by how much? We will find out the truth one day…. I hope

    1. Numbers are incredibly nonexistent.. they knew this early on from numbers from LA’s public health and USC.
      Gov N is using only positive numbers.. ignoring all others.. I don’t think he knows how to interpret or he does and is seeking a pay out by the Feds to put things back to normal. A payout that would likely disappear very quickly. When he goes , all his minions need to go too..

  8. “Resistance is patriotic” according to the buffoonish leftists screams for the past four years. I agree. Unelected wannabe emperors like Ferrer, who continues to get her paycheck every other Wednesday, unlike those small businesses she’s bankrupting with her edicts, need to be IGNORED. She’s NOT ACCOUNTABLE to voters. Recent studies show masks don’t stop the virus. Social distancing doesn’t stop the virus. Quarantines don’t stop the virus. What eventually will stop the virus is people going back to living their lives normally. All viruses will eventually disappear. We CANNOT be enslaved by politicians without an end in sight. Every week they create, and I mean CREATE, a new reason to continue to rule over the people with their edicts. Unless the legislature, responsible and accountable to voters, PASS A LAW, the people should not obey anything coming out of the mayors or the state governors. We’ve been lied to enough already. HAPPY THANKSGIVING.

  9. Numbers are incredibly nonexistent.. they knew this early on from numbers from LA’s public health and USC.

  10. So much for CA Assemblymen Kiley and Gallagher’s great “WIN” against King Newsom and his ‘One-Man Rule!’. It obviously had NO effect and the dip-shit CA Gov is right back at it.
    People in CA are sheep. Everywhere I look, people in cars wearing masks….listening to NPR, being a good little rule follower. Going along with this charade will get us nothing at this point. The level of cooperation I see is just pathetic. The people who don’t push back in this fight deserve to lose their businesses. It’s your own fault for not standing up for your rights.
    Katy, any word on Audits on the CA election??

  11. Quarantine for infected individuals has SOME merit. But lockdowns and curfews for ASYMPTOMATIC people tantamount to HOUSE ARREST WITHOUT CHARGES. This is a violation of the CA and US Constitutions. Why aren’t there civic organizations filing lawsuits in the CA and federal courts challenging these political edicts?? The constitutions of the state and US don’t have VIRUS EXCEPTIONS.

  12. How Europe overthrew communism in 1989? People were just done with the abuse and they took real action. Not just with their words. Real actions showing that they really had enough. That’s how they overthrew communism. Not by whining and complaining.

  13. This vile creature (Ferrer, of course) makes $500,000/year to put businesses out of business, spike the suicide rate, elicit more depression and anxiety from her vulnerable serfs, to trash children’s education, and to ensure increases in domestic violence and other crimes. This vile creature will never suffer a loss in salary due to the “pandemic” she is so incompetently managing on our behalf. She was not elected. She is not a doctor or epidemiologist. Her degree is in “Social Welfare,” whatever that is. “Vile” is too kind a word to describe her.
